"You can't get to the stage without the steps."
Ps 37:23 says - 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].**
God is clear on how He leads us - Ps 119:105 explains: Your word is like a lamp for my feet and a light for my path [it shows how life should be lived].***
Knowing the word of God does little to no good if you don't do anything about/with it.****
"The journey of a thousand miles begins with with a single step."***** Just one - not two...
Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step."
Indeed, faith is the substance of things not seen.****** So get ready (read the word), set (stick with it) and go!
