IMG_9855— For His eyes are on the ways of man, and He sees all his steps.    Job 34:21 NKJV

Thank you Lord, for watching over all my steps. Thank you for ordering them according to Your plans.

— A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.   Proverbs 16:9 NKJV

Thank you Lord so much for directing my steps. It is nice to know that You are in charge! It takes the burden off me so that I don’t have to worry about my day. After all, it is now Your responsibility. Now whatever happens, I can look to You and Your plan for this day.

People think that surrendering to You is hard, but that is because they don’t trust You. But Lord, if only they knew, You are Peace, wonderful Peace! Through it all, You are Peace! Total surrender brings Your Presence; therefore, Your Peace! Thank you Lord!

— Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; my flesh also will rest in hope.    Psalm 16:9 NKJV

Lord, I hope my flesh gets smaller and shrinks before You!

(My child, as you eat in submission before Me, I will take charge of your body and re-create it into victory.)

— Trust in the Lord, and do good. Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass. Psalm 37:3-5 NKJV

Lord, feed me according to Your will. Take control of my mouth, what I say and what I eat.  This morning, I looked at that lemon pie in the refrigerator that my friend brought over last night. Immediately it came to me, “Um, that would be so good for breakfast with a cup of coffee!” But then Lord, I remembered what You said to me yesterday, “Eat what I created.” So, I guess I will just eat a pear instead. Maybe I will have some wheat toast with peanut butter, maybe not, not sure now.

(My child, remember, “Don’t eat until you are hungry. I want your physical hunger to remind you to hunger after Me.”)

Yes Sir! Lord, I want You in charge of everything in my life, what I do or not do, what I speak or not speak, and what I eat or not eat. Lord, I want You to direct all my steps, actions, and thoughts according to Your will!

— The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way.           Psalm 37:23 NKJV

(My child, as My children yield themselves to My will, I delight in them. I delight as I behold their obedience. I also delight in blessing My children beyond their dreams!)
