Have you ever given a child a set of instructions? Only to realize that they have no idea how to do what you’ve asked them to do. Perhaps it’s cleaning up their toys or putting away their shoes. If they have never done it before, they have to be shown (probably multiple times) how to do so.
We should rejoice that we have a Father who will provide us with detailed instructions, guidance and wisdom on how to do what He has called us to do. When Solomon was instructed to build the Temple, he was provided with instructions from his father David and from the Lord. The Lord ordered his steps. Not only did the Lord establish his steps, He provided the natural and supernatural things needed in order to complete such as a monumental task.
As we approach any task that He has created us to do, we must allow Him to order our steps according to His Word:
When we allow the Lord to guide our steps, we are allowing Him to take control of our purpose and mission. When we seek His face for the appropriate method, we are filled with wisdom and discernment. The Lord is needed for success, we cannot do it without Him! Having the Lord order our steps requires for us to decrease so that He may increase.
With ordered steps, we can fulfill the plans of the Lord. It is only His plans that will prevail: “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.” Proverbs 19:21
