He Orders My Steps

Posted on November 6, 2019 by America's Keswick in Victory Call

A few years ago I was told that the decision had been made to close the Keswick Book and Gift Shop and that I did not have a job. I had a job for the Christmas season, but after that I had no idea what I would be doing! While discussing the uncertainty of the days ahead, a friend reminded me that God orders my steps. The next night, I got a card from another friend and in it she wrote, “He has ordered your steps.” Job certainly didn’t know why difficulty and suffering came his way but God ordered his steps. David was anointed king yet he ran for his life while Saul sought to kill him. God had ordered his steps.
Ruth followed Naomi to a people and country that she took as her own. God was ordering her steps. Abram was told to leave his country with no idea where he was going. Wasn’t God still ordering his steps? Corrie and Betsie Ten Boom walked into Ravensbruck concentration camp.  Could they have trusted that God was ordering their steps?
I did not know exactly where God was ordering my steps but of this I was sure- He knows the way! I want to faithfully and obediently trust Him each step of the way. My challenge and yours may be to just keep holding tight, letting Him lead and taking the next step!
