“For His eyes are on the ways of man, And He sees all his steps.” Job 34:21


God has purposely kept us in the dark concerning our future because as a loving Father, He knows that if we were to see the big picture immediately, we would be unlikely to trust Him for every step.


When you stand before a huge expanse of water that you need to cross, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and to give into panic and worry. But when all you see ahead is a stepping stone, it is God’s way of guiding you, loving you, showing you His will, one step at a time.


That is why God often hides Himself to the senses so that we seek Him by faith. When our common sense cannot see the way ahead, we have to submit to His Word and allow His Sprit to guide our heart to see by faith the next stepping stone to tread on.


Do you feel as if you are facing a huge rushing river with no way across? Take a moment to reflect on this past year and you will see the faithfulness of God in each step – how God took you through, one step at a time.


Now as we are about to enter a new year, make sure your heart is tuned to His voice, so that He shows you which is the next step to take, on your journey to eternity in Jesus’ name.






“Let’s take a lesson from David who was ready to be humiliated in his own eyes, so that God could be honoured. Ask yourself: Where does honouring God appear in your list of priorities? Do you thank Him for all that He has done in your life, all the way long? While men look at the outside, God looks at the motives of the heart. Instead of worrying about the opinion of others concerning you, let the motive of your heart each day be to honour God before yourself.”


“There is no time to do what is right. We must set our heart to obey the Word of God, all the time. God’s kind of lifestyle calls us to do what is right in the sight of God at all times, even though it is contrary to what we naturally want to do. Choosing to do what is right is a great test to the flesh.

What is the sacrifice of righteousness? Choosing to do God’s will rather than our own. When our flesh says hate, God says love. It takes sacrificial love to love your enemy and to pray for them. These are the weapons of righteousness. This is the sacrifice that Jesus looks at and rewards. Even though that might not be a grand, or outward sacrifice, it is what Jesus values.”


“When we talk of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, we are talking of the rare opportunity He has given to all believers to experience a new beginning – a situation in which every dead area of our lives receives life anew.

We are dead to our past and alive to our future. Sin’s power over us is broken and we now put on Christ’s new life: we live in Him, move in Him and have our being in Him. Herein lies the significance of resurrection.”
