Daily D – Psalm 119:59
I pondered the direction of my life, and I turned to follow your laws. (NLT)
When I took a long, careful look at your ways,
I got my feet back on the trail you blazed.
Every day calls for calibration. Every day requires a sequence of events positioning us to accomplish our purpose. The bad news? Plans seldom perfectly follow our intentions. The good news? Those who plan accomplish more than those who drift. Set your feet on the trail God blazed for you.
Today’s path sends me first in one direction and then another. The plan is for it to end where it begins. The points along the way where I will stop include lunch with a friend’s son, a walk with leaders whose opportunities are accelerating, and a casual gathering of acquaintances becoming friends drawn together by their mutual desire to know and experience God more richly and fully.
This is the kind of plan you celebrate as you lie down to sleep at night.
How is your calibration going?
What is your sequence of events?
Where will God’s path lead you today?
Great Adventures most often begin with single steps. Take a good, long look at the ways laid out before you. Set your feet on the path God blazed for you. Live in God’s strength. Serve those he brings into your life. Celebrate with those who share your purpose. Give thanks as you lie down to rest and prepare for another great adventure.
I will set my feet on the path God blazed for me.
Our Father, please direct my steps today. I want to go with you at your pace and for your purpose. I do not want to get ahead of you, fall behind you, or swerve to the left or right. Keep me in step with you so that I may know your heart and mind and use my hands to serve your great purpose. Amen.

Psalm 139:17, 18 How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!
2 Corinthians 5:1-5 For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing. For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies. While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life. God himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee he has given us his Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 10:13 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
