Psalm 37:23–24 (Listen)

23   The steps of a man are established by the LORD,
    when he delights in his way;
24   though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong,
    for the LORD upholds his hand.


The steps of a man are established by the Lord,
    when he delights in his way;
 though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong,
    for the Lord upholds his hand. (Psalm 37:23-24)

Start Taking Steps: Resist Perfection

What a beautiful picture to visualize when looking forward to the prize of the heavenly calling in Christ for this year. Would you be willing to let the Lord establish your steps and know that even if you fall, the Lord will hold you up? So many dreams and goals fail because they never get started. People wait for things to become perfect on paper before following the desires God has placed in their hearts. By the time it takes to get something perfect, it often becomes no longer relevant. Plan, consider the cost, and above all seek God’s guidance, but you must begin your journey! What baby steps can you start taking before you are off and running? What can you do now to implement the changes God is calling you to? What will you do this week to get your dream in motion?
