Are your steps ordered?

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you could not figure out a solution? The problem had started out small, but it had enlarged itself seemingly overnight. Then you realized that you needed God. Suddenly you cried out to God to help you, and He did. It was right to cry out to God. But why don’t we ask for His help with the little things?

If you read 2 Chronicles 16, you will find the story of Asa, a king of Judah. When the story begins, Asa is devising some plans, and they don’t work out too well. The seer of the Lord comes and tells him that he will have wars because he didn’t seek the Lord. Asa did not seek God’s guidance, and as a result he would never have complete victory.

That wasn’t Asa’s only problem. Asa had a foot disease. The Bible says he was "diseased in his feet, until his disease was exceeding great: yet in his disease he sought not to the LORD, but to the physicians." If you read that verse carefully I’m sure you noticed that his disease started small. It wasn’t a big problem at first. As time went on, it got big. From the reading of the passage it would seem that he died from it.

Asa messed up, but we don’t have to. I would like to encourage you, seek God for guidance. Just like Asa, we cannot have perfect victory if we try to fight the enemy on our own. Without God, our little problems can become unmanageable. God wants us to seek Him so we can have victory. God wants us to seek Him! He desires for us to ask Him for help. Ask for God’s guidance today. You will find He is willing and able to guide you in your every situation!

"The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand." – Psalm 37:23-24
