Guide My Steps
Psalm 119:133

The Upward Look
    by Max D. Hutto,

“Order my steps in Thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.” Psalm 119:133 KJV

In this prayer thought the psalmist declares two great guiding principles for living. First, all one’s steps, one’s life, every thought and deed, must be ordered, guided, directed, and established in God’s Word. The Bible is the guide for living a righteous life. It is urgent that every follower read and study God’s Word daily. Second, the domination and rule of sin must be thwarted and broken. Sin, any sin, will make one’s footsteps fall on unstable ground and destroy one’s holy steps.

Lord Jesus, set me free from the power and slavery of sin in my life. Fill my life with the Scripture so that my every step will be firm, steady, and sure in obedience to Your Word.
