Walking with God

(J. R. Miller, "In Green Pastures" 1890)

"Direct my footsteps according to Your Word;
 let no sin rule over me." Psalm 119:133

This is a prayer which should always be on our lips.
We should get our direction from God, not once in
our life only, when we first give ourselves to Him;
not at the opening of each day only, as we go forth
to the day's task; not merely at the beginning of
each new piece of work or of each fresh taskóbut
every moment
, for each step.

That is what "walking with God" means.

We may make this so real, that we shall look up
into God's face continually, asking, "What next,
dear Lord? What shall I do now? Which course
shall I take today? How shall I do this duty?"


If we can but have God's guidance and help for
the little short stepsówe need not fear for the
long milesóthe great stretches of road. If each
step
is of His directingóthe long miles will be
paths of His choosing.
