The Light Daily Devotional – What makes a good man
Focus: What makes a good man
WORD FOR TODAY
A man can only be good when his steps are ordered by God. The greatest security of a man and how much his life will be a blessing is not in the degree of his precautions but in how much he can deny himself to be ordered or led by the Lord!
“The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, And He delights in his way.” (Psalm 37:23 NKJV)
God’s plan for us is not evil, but good. When the Lord orders a man’s steps, iniquity cannot have dominion over him, and his life will be ushered into His will as it is in heaven. The error in men’s lives is the result of various steps they took after rejecting the Lord’s leading.
You will only become what God wants you to be and have the life He desires for you if you allow Him to direct your path. To be the good man you want to be, you must trust God to direct your steps. Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans (Proverbs 16:3). Be mindful of the fact that Life has proven to be so funny; the way which seems right to a man might lead to his destruction.
Being ordered by God is the greatest assurance of safety and security in all aspects of life.
+Are you a good man? Who is ordering your steps?
Prayer: Lord! Order my steps always and make me a good man all the days of my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Emphasis: You are a good man if and only if you follow Christ in His steps as He leads you in destiny!
Have a Successful Wednesday!
