Our family moved from suburbia to the center of a small city. We now enjoy living close enough to walk to the dentist, the grocery store, the kids’ school, and most places we need to be. All this walking causes our shoes and socks to wear out faster than when we drove everywhere. Sights and sounds of a city are swiftly familiar when you take them in on foot. Daily, we take thousands of steps establishing ourselves in this new place.
“Establish my footsteps in Your word,
And do not let any wrongdoing have power over me” (Psalm 119:133, NASB).
No matter how many steps a person gets in each day, it’s the footsteps taken through God’s Word which establish a life. Nothing is more disorienting to a soul than the darkness of sin; whether that be my sin or that which is committed against me.
“Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path” (Psalm 119:105, NASB).
Finding a home in the Bible is what keeps sin from having power over my life and shows me where to step next as a parent, a wife, an employee, and a friend. Establishing footsteps in God’s Word is the sure way to not miss all the beauty God has in store for life’s journey.
How can you orient your life to walk in the Word each day?
