“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way” (Psalm 37:23).

After ten days of ministry in California we were on the road making the two-day drive home. The first day was sunny and bright and we could see for miles. With light traffic, we took the time to enjoy the beautiful scenery.

Things changed on the second day — torrential rain, fog, and poor visibility. The spray from the wheels of the big trucks only made it more difficult to see. Most of the time we could see only a few car lengths ahead, and so we had to concentrate on our driving.

We had no long-distance vision. We knew, however, that if we stayed on the I-5 North that we would eventually get to the U.S./Canadian border. The road signs also assured us that we were heading in the right direction, even though we could only see a short distance ahead.

As Marvin was driving, I thought of the verse, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path” (Psalm 119:105). Life is a journey. If we have asked Jesus to be our Savior and Lord, our destination is heaven.

Some days are sunny and bright. Others are foggy and have torrents of problems. In the same way big trucks can it make it harder to see the road, sometimes difficult people or circumstances can cloud our thinking. Still, we can be assured that the path hasn’t changed. God hasn’t changed. Only our ability to see clearly has changed.

During those foggy days, we need to remember that God has ordered all of our steps. We are on the right road — the one going to heaven. The Bible provides us with the road signs and is the light to our feet.

I encourage you to read the Bible every day in order that God can encourage you. He will keep you from stumbling and falling and if you do fall, He will pick you up again. If you haven’t made it a habit to read the Bible every day, let me encourage you to begin. Start with the book of Proverbs or James, and read a few verses every day.

Father, thank You for ordering all of our footsteps. Thank You for Your Word, which lights up our day and our way. Give us the sense to go to You for assurance when we need to be reminded that You are directing us — that You haven’t forgotten us. Amen.
