Order my tongue, in Your word
Guide my feet, in Your word
Wash my heart, in Your word
Show me how to walk, in Your word
Show me how to talk, in Your word.(refrain)
I want to walk worthy, my calling to fulfill
Please order my steps,
Lord, and I’ll do Your blessed will
The world is ever changing, but You are still the same
If You order my steps, I’ll praise Your name.
~~A hymn by Glen Burleigh~
One of the things I've been noticing lately in my walk with the Lord is how very little I am able to do on my own. I want to walk worthy, but I am unable to guide my steps in the way He desires and I'm not able to keep my heart pure or my lips for that matter. I want my life to honor Him, but on my own, that's impossible.
We know this intellectually, but understanding it in practice is a bit more difficult. I run off and plan 5 meetings, organize everything to a tee, work my tail off and then wonder if I've been seeking God's guidance through it all.
My feet sometimes get ahead of my heart. I need to wait for Him to order my steps, to lead me in the way everlasting that I might praise Him with my life.
Father, I need You, I need You now more than ever. I need You to plan the path in front of me and to gently lead me in the right direction. I need You to help me make each step of faith and to speak each word by the Spirit. I need You to be my guide and to be my forgiveness and my healing. A life of faith is impossible without Your power!
