Placing our feet in His footprints will keep us in His perfect will.

Placing our feet in His footprints will keep us in His perfect will.

Lord, You are the Sovereign God who reigns on high. You are mighty, yet gentle; just, yet gracious — O so gracious! You orchestrate and govern all of the universe, yet tend to the intricate details of my life. Of these things I cannot fully comprehend, yet I know they are true for I have experienced each of them: Your power, gentleness, justice, grace. I know You as Sovereign God, and Abba Father — my Daddy God. I’m so grateful for Your love.

Many of us yearn to know Your perfect will for our lives. We desire to honor You, to recognize Your authority over us. Show us Your footprints that we might follow them with complete abandon.

You’ve taught me to see that walking a road that lies closely parallel to the one You want me to travel, yet not placing my feet in Your footprints is not Your idea of obedience. To be almost in Your perfect will is actually to miss it completely. Lord, that’s hard to swallow.

In Your perfect will is peace. Provision. Joy, and fulfillment.

Help us recognize Your voice of instruction. Give us courage to obey, and strength to persevere when we want to compromise to make things easier. Help us walk in Your truth — to discern Your perfect will and walk it in. It sounds simple, Lord, but it’s not.

I know You take great pleasure in an obedient heart. May the determination of our heart to obey You in all things honor You and cause You to smile. We want to bless You Lord for all You have done and do for us.

You are an awesome God, worthy of all praise.

In Jesus’ Name I pray,



Please don’t carry your burdens alone. I would be honored to pray for you.

Beginning next Friday, July 14th, I’m adding a new feature to my blog!

Faith Notes will share the testimonies of people from all walks of life who not only found God in their darkest moments, but how He revealed Himself to them although they felt abandoned. We’ve all felt that at times, haven’t we? But God is faithful to His children and He promised to never leave us nor forsake us. He is near to the brokenhearted and those who are crushed in spirit.

If you have a story to share, please contact me at I would like to feature Christian authors, musicians, songwriter/singers, fine artists, speakers, and ordinary folks with extraordinary faith. Please pray about contributing to help others who are desperately clinging to the cross in their time of need.
