Order My Steps Dear Lord

Psa 119:133 "Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me."

Often times we get trapped in our situations and find ourselves by ourselves. Many times the devil throws roadblocks in our way to deter us from feeling stable in God. When we start to question our stability in God. We start to lose trust or faith. Though the situation looks gloomy, God hasn't changed. When obstacles come our way, it is the perfect time to strengthen our faith.

The word "order" in Hebrew can be translated or replaced with set, prepare, establish, or even direct. The psalmist is saying, "Set my steps, make them firm so there is no halting."  When we try to order our own steps we end up like the first part of Psalms 40:2 where the psalmist writes, He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.  When we find ourselves in these horrible pits, thank God for a Savior. David notes God's favor, which delivers him in his time of need, WITH thankfulness in his praise.  

Our horrible pit or miry clay could be discouragement, doubt, depression, fear, or etc. This is when our heart needs to lean instead of holding on. We need to give it to God. When it seems there’s nowhere left to turn, turn to God. We need to stop taking all of the blows and let God "set [our] feet upon a rock, and established [our] goings."
