Our Steps are Numbered

I often check my iPhone health app to see how many steps I’ve taken. (My record so far is 21,932 steps.)

So I paused to reflect when I read this: “Does not he see my ways and number all my steps?” (Job 31:3).

I’m learning to check in with God to see if my steps and my ways have pleased him.

Ask for Wisdom

I often pray for wisdom (see James 1:5). Until I read this definition, I didn’t know all that I was asking.

Wisdom* is:
~varied knowledge of things human and divine, acquired by acuteness and experience
~skill in the management of affairs
~devout and proper prudence in intercourse with men
~knowledge and practice of the requisites for godly and upright living

Our lack of understanding doesn’t limit God’s answers to our prayers.
