Established Steps

The steps of a man are established by the Lord, when he delights in his way;  though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the Lord upholds his hand.

Psalm 37:23-24

Nothing touches my heart when sitting on the beach, watching families play around me, like seeing a dad holding his toddler’s hand, introducing him to the ocean. With wobbly steps, the child teeters towards the massive waves, not concerned as he clings to his father’s hand.

We can confidently walk toward the oncoming waves of life, knowing the Lord guides our steps, holds our hand, and walks with us. Nothing we encounter in life will surprise God. Bad things will happen, the Lord allows them into our lives, but we don’t face them alone.

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1:2-4

When you feel knocked down by one of life’s waves, think of God holding your hand, helping you find your footing again. Shifting sands may make your path wobbly, but our Father’s hand will help you walk confidently forward, finding joy in the journey as you trust Him.  God establishes your steps. Though the waves continue to batter the shore, the Lord will help you to stand firm when you cling to Him.


God establishes our steps and holds our hand.


Lord, thank You for establishing our footsteps and holding our hands as we face the waves of life. Please help us remember Your presence when life presses in on us, facing the storms with confidence, knowing You walk with us. Help us overcome life challenges, relying on Your presence to guide us to victory. IJNIP. Amen
