In His timing, God will always light the next step for us.

“Trust in the Lord completely,
and do not rely on your own opinions.
With all your heart rely on Him to guide you,
and He will lead you [in the next step] in every decision you make.
Become intimate with Him in whatever you do,
and He will lead you wherever you go.” ~ Proverbs 3:5-6, TPT

Lord, You truly are my Way-Maker. What You say You will do, You will do. In Your timing. In Your way You will light the next step for us.

God Will Guide Us Into The Next Step … and The Next … And The Next

Give me courage to take the next step, even though the road is foggy up ahead. I see shadows of possibility in the mist — something is there, but I can’t see it clearly.

This reminds me of the glass we look through and see dimly, but soon we will see face to face. My understanding is incomplete now, but one day I will understand everything.

We can trust God with the next step.

Because You said so.

That requires faith, Lord.

And so does taking the next step You’ve asked of me. and the same is true for my friends. But we trust You because we know You are with us and we know faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. So, even though the path ahead is shrouded in fog, we believe the shadowy images in the mist are the things we’ve hoped for.

But we must dare to take the first step where shines Your light, and then the next … and the next … and the next.

I know beneath our steps is the Rock that will never fail us — the Rock that is sure and keeps us safe from lurking enemies. You are a solid Rock, our fortress in Whom we trust.

God’s Word is a Lamp Unto Our Feet, Lighting the Next Step We Must Take in Faith

Thank You for Your promises. And thank You for Your longsuffering with us as we step out of the boat and then scramble to get back in — as we courageously take the next step and then crawl back into our Daddy’s lap. Mercy, Lord!

You are so patient and kind, and You do all things well.

Thank You for Your Word that is a lamp onto our feet. And thank You for taking us by the right hand as You lead us in paths of righteousness for Your Name’s sake. Thank You for audacious faith to believe that You give us sure footing each step of the way as we focus on You.

In Jesus’s Name I pray,

Amen
