Lead and Follow = Guidance
Promises of God
"Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out. " Deut. 28:6 (Amplified)
The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore. Psalms 121:8 (Amplified)
As I read this verse, the words “from this time forth” rang in my spirit. From the very moment I read this verse and received it as a promise from God, it was mine. I could feel it in my spirit, and something major took place! God will keep my going out and my coming in, He will direct my steps and lead me in ways I should go.
This promise was given to the Children of Israel when they crossed over the Jordan River. God said, “ . . . on the day when you pass over the Jordan . . .” (Deut. 27:2). It was an appointed time that He gave His promise which was on the day they crossed over.
Today as I read this verse (Psalms 121:8), I am crossing over. I am receiving this promise that from this moment, my steps are ordered by the Lord. God will bless me, feed me, guide me, and direct my steps forever.
