The First Step

Earlier this week I walked 16,619 steps in one day. That information comes from my Fitbit tracker. I know that is a lot of steps for me. Being at EPCOT meant I was going to take many steps. Although it was fun, towards the end of the day, my feet were very tired. Based on what my wife and I read about EPCOT we made many decisions. Where to go. Where to eat. Making FastPass selections. For most of the 16,619 steps I took that day, I was not thinking about what God wants.

Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust the Lord completely, and don’t depend on your own knowledge. With every step you take, think about what he wants, and he will help you go the right way.” (ERV)

Yes, I trust the Lord. Completely, every step? Maybe not, but I’m working on it. It is a life-long process. My wife and I prayed a lot about whether or not to join “Disney Vacation Club”. You pay down on a timeshare and then pay annual dues. It made sense, financially, only if you return every year to Walt Disney World. Our human knowledge said it was a good deal, but we wanted our Lord’s approval. We felt his approval, and this became a blessing in our lives. A blessing we were able to share with family and friends.

Buying into a timeshare ranks as a big decision, but it is not the most important decision we make. The most important decision is to accept Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior. There are only two choices. Yes or No. It cannot be made more simple. It is hard for some people to choose “Yes” because they can not trust Jesus to be in charge of their lives. They want to make all of life’s decisions on their own.

Trusting in the Lord is the first step we all need to take. After that first step, we belong to him and he cares for us. Seek him always and he will always help you go in the right way. Each step of the way.
