Of course, this shows the awesome partnership with Jesus, as he gives us the desires of our heart (Ps. 37:4), then he even establishes our steps.
But as I ran up these uneven, rocky stairs, it wasn’t always easy to get a sure footing. And I realized the parallel, that many times we need to let Jesus establish one footing before we go to the next one.
As someone who loves to dream, and will often see glimpses of the end goal, this is challenging. But letting Jesus establish our steps is crucial and actually essential. If we don’t let this happen, we’re really just wasting our time. “Unless the LORD builds the house, the work of the builders is wasted” (Ps 127:1). Wow, strong truth.
For me, I’m asking Jesus, which step are you establishing. Make it clear so I can have sure footing to move to the next one.
