"Righteousness will go before Him. And shall make His footsteps our pathway."
As I rose before the morning sun it was time to look into my Bible to find a scripture to take with me to my morning "yo, God" class. A scripture to meditate on to bring strength and fitness to my spiritual body. The scripture that caught my attention was found in Psalms 85:13.
What stood out the most to me was the fact that God's footsteps shall be our pathway. Being a person who has to choose my steps carefully because of my bone cancer pathways are important. The smoother and flatter the better, even then I carefully make sure I am not going to step wrong causing myself to fall.
Spiritually is no different. The smoother and flatter the better although that's not always the case. It's great that God paves the road ahead of us with His footsteps. His righteousness that goes before Him is the paving material that is laid down to establish our pathway.
As I lift my weights this morning I can't help but thank The Lord for what He has done for me. It indeed helps to know I don't have to blaze my own trails. I may need to lift my own weight temporarily but even that spiritually is not done alone.
What I need to meditate on this morning is choosing my steps carefully on a path already paved for me. Looking close to where I am going that I may not fall. It doesn't matter how smooth or flat the surface I could still fall but the biggest issue is if I stay down or gracefully arise again to walk with the Lord in His footsteps. The choice is mine. The pathway is His.
