Apostle Grace Lubega
Psalm 37:23(KJV); The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.
The Hebrew root word gabar used for ‘a good man’ in our theme scripture is translated to mean strong or mighty.
When read in this context, the Word of God says, ‘the steps of a strong man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.’
For God to order your steps, you need to be spiritually strong. He requires from you a high inner strength.
Let us understand this ordering of your steps in light of divine assignment.
This means that God is not in the business of assigning spiritually weak men. They may not be physically strong and may suffer some weaknesses in the flesh but it is important to him that their spirits are strong.
This is why your preparation precedes assignment by God. Most men who are eventually assigned by the Lord have been tested and tried in all manner of ways before they are entrusted with the great mantle of divine mandate.
Why is this so important? Because it is the strength of your spirit that will guarantee that you will finish your divine assignment and sustain you through all manner of attacks from the enemy.
Allow God to work in you, prune you and shape you because He wants to use you once you are strengthened, skilled and experienced.

GOLDEN NUGGET: It is the strength of your spirit that will guarantee that you will finish your divine assignment and sustain you through all manner of attacks from the enemy.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for Your Spirit that strengthens my inner man every day. I have yielded my heart to Your work. Break, bend and kill me if You must, that I will be ready for Your great work, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
