Step by Step

"When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble." Proverbs 4:12

Child of my love, worry not ore the unknown morrow,
Fear not the new demand life makes of thee;
Thy ignorance doth hold no cause for sorrow
Since what thou knowest not, is known to Me.

Thou canst not see today the hidden meaning
Of My command, but thou the light shalt gain;
Walk on in faith, upon My promise leaning,
And as thou goest all shall be made plain.

One step thou seest-than go forward boldly,
One step is far enough for faith to see;
Take that, and thy next duty shall be told thee,
For step by step thy Lord is leading thee.

Stand not in fear thy adversaries counting,
Dare every peril, save to disobey;
Thou shalt march on, all obstacles surmounding,
For I, the Strong, will open up the way,

Wherefore go gladly to the task assigned thee,
Having My promise, needing nothing more
Than just to know, where'er the future find thee,
In all thy journeying I go before.

What a lovely poem! We should indeed not worry about the tomorrow, for it is in the Lord's hands, therefore we can walk confidently with assurance of His leading.
