God Directs Your Steps
While we often look at God’s promises as being separate and standing alone, they’re actually interrelated and interdependent on each other. God’s promise to make everything in your life work for good depends on living your life for His Purpose…the Redemption of Mankind.
When you live your life for the Redemption of Mankind, you automatically live in faith by knowing God’s making everything in your life work for good. This equation is foundational to how you are to live your life every day. We’re called to be People of Faith and, in fact, without faith it’s impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6).
This is reinforced in Proverbs 3:5 when God tells us to trust in the Lord with your whole heart, do not lean unto your own understanding, acknowledge God in all your ways and He Will Direct Your Path. When you focus on leading everyone, every day, closer to Jesus, you will acknowledge Him (speak of Him) in everything you do. Then God promises He will direct your steps. This is where the rubber meets the road for Christians and it’s absolutely consistent throughout scripture.
