“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.” (Psalms 37: 23)
Be good. Be yourself. Obey the voice that speaks to your heart, lovingly yet firmly guiding you. Our true self isn’t pushed by human will and effort or fraught with arguments and opinions. We are at one with God’s conscious Mind, responsive to the right way, the natural way, the satisfying way, the fruitful way. Yield to this guidance willingly and gratefully.
When we know good and claim it as our being and purpose, each step of our way and each hour of our day is perfectly in sync with what is good for us and for all. As we let go of fear and false pride and the limits that human opinions might dictate, we can hear God’s intention. We can stay in step with God and in accord with our own real nature, pure goodness and love.
And when we listen and follow in this way, we gain God’s delight. He loves us always, but He surely beams with approval when we are radiating His glorious purpose, walking with Him and not out on our egotistical own. And this delight is also our own joy. For God’s pleasure is expressed in our own blessed awareness that we are right on track and that each step is graceful, beautiful, freeing, and progressive.
