One thing that cannot be predicted is how God will direct our steps. The reason is because God knows the beginning from the end. So, even though we may want to take two steps to the right, God may order our steps to the left. In 2018, we must obey the voice and direction of God.
The ordered steps of God are for a time and reason. Our obedience may not be for our benefit, but instead for the benefit of others.
When God told Noah to build an ark, everyone thought Noah was crazy. If Noah only thought about himself and what others thought of him, I’m sure the world would be a much different place. Thankfully, Noah knew that God did things on purpose and on a grand scale. Noah’s obedience changed the world.
What will your obedience say to future generations?
New International Version (NIV)
14 So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitchinside and out. 15 This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high.16 Make a roof for it, leaving below the roof an opening one cubit high all around. Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks.
The worship video comes from the GMWA Women of Worship with the song entitled, “Order My Steps.”
I love you with an amazing and everlasting love.
