Psalm 37:23 (KJV) The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.

Watching a military march-past or parade is a thing of beauty that draws applause from all. Their tidy regalia, focus, command execution, and uniformity are outstanding; unlike those of laymen or paramilitary outfits where missteps abound. Very crucial to their standard is their discipline, consistency, and adherence to their parade commandant.

From today's Bible verse, the word "ordered" is synonymous with soldiering. Because as believers, we are soldiers for Christ, it becomes very pertinent that most of our life's decisions [whether minor or major] aren't just casual or based on our own understanding, but based on God's leading (Pro 3:5-6, 2Tim 2:3-4).

Soldiers attain a high level of brilliance in their march-past, only after they have gone through discipline and repeated practice. As with the things of God, taking the right step, prevailing and eliciting victory applause, involves active discipleship and getting oneself attuned to the leading of God's Spirit (1Cor 2:10-16; 2Tim 2:15).

Isaiah 30:21 (NIV) says - Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”

That is the voice of the Holy Spirit and He is the parade commandant whose voice we are to always heed. He reveals to us the mind of Jesus (our Commander-in-Chief) and directs us on how to do His will. He lovingly corrects us and helps maintain our right status if we veer towards sin. He is our navigational guide through all of life's obstacles. Knowing Him personally is true success in life (Jh 14, 15, 16).

Go into today knowing that the Holy Spirit is a friendly commandant. As you obey Him by word study and prayers, your life will never lack direction.
—Chibo E.C.
