The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step]. Ps 37:23
Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed. Prov 16:3
A good man is one who has surrendered his life and will to Jesus. This man realizes that he has been shown great love and mercy by the Father and so he shows great love and mercy to those around him. This man is humble yet confident in who God has made him to be. He is strong in Christ’s strength, so he can boldly speak of his weaknesses. He is led by the Holy Spirit and seeks the wisdom of God’s Word daily. A good man understands submission and operates under God’s authority, acknowledging the Father in all things.
This man represents Christ in the Earth.
God not only guides a good man, but He also establishes his steps. He gives the good man wisdom and discernment so that he knows the way to go. God makes his footing sure as he walks through life.
A good man is teachable so he is obedient to the Word and direction of the Father. This man does the will of the Father and so the Father delights and takes pleasure in how he lives his life – the paths he chooses.
God busies Himself with every step the good man takes. The Creator of the Universe is completely vested in the success of a good man and works to make every situation a blessing to him.
A good man commits all his plans to God. He submits to God everything he wants to do, giving Him full veto power to adjust them to His will. A good man trusts God’s heart of love towards him, respects God’s sovereignty and acknowledges God’s power. So he yields his plans to God. He yields his will to God. He says, “Lord not my will, but Yours be done.”
The Lord causes the thoughts of the good man to line up with His will. Then God causes the good man’s plans, which are now in line with His will, to be established, to be blessed, to succeed and to last.
God gives a legacy to the good man. His works will stand long after he is gone. They stand as a testament to the goodness and grace of the God he served.
Love & Blessings,
