Very Personal Words Experienced by One Sheep Through a Year. 

Man's Steps are Ordered by the Lord

January 22

SHEEP: I've been fretting and stewing over the schedule surgery.

GOD'S WORD:A man's mind plants his own way but the Lord directs his steps and makes them sure.

Psalm 119:33: Teach me, LORD, the way of your decrees, that I may follow it to the end

Psalm 37:23: The LORD makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him.

Proverbs 16:9-20: In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps. Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers and blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD.

Proverbs 16:24: Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

Jeremiah 10:23: LORD, I know that people's lives are not their own; it is not for them to direct their steps. The steps of a good man are directed and established by the Lord and He delights in his way. He busies himself with his every step.

SHEEP: Man's steps are ordered by the Lord. I know the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man (even in a strong man or in a man at his best) to direct his own steps.
