Do you know that when we follow the steps that God orders for our lives, we will be better off? I know that for a fact. I had to finally
let go and let God instead of trying to make everything fit into my life and doing things my way. I had to respect that God is a God of order and discipline. He does things in excellence. He's doesn't do things in an unorganized, chaotic, haphazard, or sub-standard fashion. That means He's not going to bless a mess. He's not going to put His stamp of approval on the things we want that He knows aren't good for us. It doesn't matter how much we plan and how hard we work, God is not going to bless things that He knows won't work in our favor. It doesn't matter how much blood, sweat, and tears we shed to get it. If God didn't ordain it for our lives, then it's not going to work for any considerable amount of time. It doesn't matter the accolades or the money, if it wasn't sanctioned by God it's not going to have any leverage and we will probably find ourselves miserable in the process anyway.
So, getting what God wants for us and what He planned for our lives involves simply waiting on Him to tell us what to do and when to move. He won't give us every little detail, but we will know when we're going in the right direction as long as we have a relationship with God. He orders our steps and He will never go out of order. He can even allow us to skip steps that leave us scratching our heads asking, 'how'd that
happen?' For "the Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand" (Psalm 37:23).
It's about sticking to God's order and staying with His plan.
