Proverbs 16:9 “The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps”
Psalms 37:23-24“The steps of a man are established by the Lord, and He delights in his way. When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong, because the Lord is the one who holds his hand”
Have you ever known in your heart that the Lord was directing to you do something bigger than you thought you were capable to do? I have. Actually I am in the mist of that BIG THING right now. I went through so many emotions before I said yes. You see I am a bit of a perfectionist. Those reading this who know me said, “yes you are” as soon as they read that. I am also impatient. Once I commit to something I want to get it done NOW. I am also a planner.
All of these can be good qualities, however they can also be roadblocks. You see if God has directed you to do something you should allow Him to direct your steps. When we fall, and we may, we won’t stay down because the scripture says he holds us in his hands. You see He has given us the keys to completing the goal, dream, vision, whatever you may call it, in todays scripture.
In pursing every dream you need two things to successfully allow God to direct your steps and to help you with the fear of falling: Prayer and Patience. Ok, so number one comes easy for me because I LOVE TO PRAY. Maybe it is easy for you too.
The second one is the hardest for me. Patience. That’s why I need to pray a lot, to pray that God gives me more patience as WE work towards the prize. I am not sure how confident you are regarding your dream or calling. If God has ask you do something, then I suggest that you begin every day with prayer, asking Him to direct your every step, every process, every idea as you move forward.
Don’t give up on your dreams if they don’t happen right away or even if you fall. If you know in your heart that God has called you to do something then just know that He will get you through to it. Don’t be afraid. God has great things for you and I know one thing, He is faithful and just. Go after your dreams and do it right now. Take that first step right now. Comment below and share what your dream is and what you are doing to move forward towards it.
