Summary: The steps of a good man are ordered, directed, guided, and led by the Lord.
3.The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord means that the steps of a good man are led by the Lord.
Psalm 25:5 says, “Lead me in thy truth, and teach me; for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.”
So to have your steps ordered by the Lord means:
1.To be directed by the Lord
2.To be guided by the Lord
3.To be led by the Lord
But for the Lord to direct your steps, guide your steps, or to lead you in the way you should go, there are some things we must do:
1.First of all, if we want the Lord to order our steps, you must have faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.”
2.Secondly, if we want our steps to be ordered by the Lord, we must be in prayer daily.
St. Luke 18:1 says that “men should always pray and not faint.”
I Thessalonians 5:17 says that to “pray without ceasing.”
In Jeremiah 33:3, the LORD says, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee and show you great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”
3.Thirdly if we want our steps ordered by the Lord, we must believe, read, study, meditate and obey the Word of God.
Psalm 119:133 says, “Order my steps in thy word, and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.”
4.Fourthly, if you want the Lord to order your stpes, you must be led and filled with the Holy Ghost.
Romans 8:14 says, “For as many are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”
Ephesians 5:18 says, “Be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess, but be filled with the Spirit.”
Psalm 37:23 says, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord and he delighteth in his way.”
You see, when you allow the Lord to order your steps, there will be peace.
When you allow the Lord to order your steps, there will be joy.
When you allow the Lord to order your steps, there will be power.
When you allow the Lord to order your steps, there will be victory.
When you allow the Lord to order your steps, you have something to shout about because when He order your steps, you will be blessed going in and going out, you will be blessed in the city and in the field, you will be the head and not the tail, you will be above ,and not beneath. And when God blesses you like that you ought to praise God with a joyful noise!!!!!!!
Now it must be understood that having your steps ordered by the Lord does not mean that everything will be rosy and smooth for you all the times. While the Lord is ordereing your steps, there will be times you will face some problems, obstacles, setbacks, sickness, pain, disappointments, heartbreaks and failures.
