Stepping Stones

“Abundant peace belongs to those
who love Your instruction;
nothing makes them stumble.”

Micah 6:8

“Mankind, He has told you what is good
and what it is the Lord requires of you:
to act justly,
to love faithfulness,
and to walk humbly with your God.”

Psalm 119:165

Each day we move along the stepping stones of our lives. Some steps are smooth and easy. Others require us to stretch, or even take a small leap of faith to reach them.

With each step, we have choices to make…
What will I do?
Which step is next?
Who do I need to reach out to?
How can I best accomplish the task?

We can receive divine instruction when we pause to listen to the Lord and seek His guidance through Bible study and prayer. With His loving direction, we can confidently take the next step, knowing He will be with us along the way.

God has told us to walk humbly with faithfulness. He promises peace for those who follow Him. The Lord will keep us from stumbling. He knows where our path will lead. With the reassurance and the guidance of the Lord, we are able to take this journey while enjoying the beauty in the world around us.

PRAYER:
Dear Lord,
Thank You for being with us along our path. Thank You for the gift of peace that comes when we seek Your guidance. Help us to pause and listen for Your direction as we move forward.
In Christ’s name, Amen.

Journal: What choices do you need to make? What small steps is the Lord asking you to take? Jot those steps down and continue your journey.
