Throwback Thursday – How to Put One Foot In Front Of The Other

…or how we press on in the next thing, or in parenting, or in marriage, or at work, or in a season of difficult obedience, or blind trust, or deepest sorrow…

Zechariah 4:7.  "How to put one foot in front of the other"
Sometimes that’s the only way. That, and this:

Psalm 5:3. "How to put one foot in front of the other."

But isn’t it really enough?

Today, no matter what, lets choose to rejoice in the fact that we don’t have to do life on our own.

Isaiah 41:13  "How to put one front in front of the other."

It isn’t by anything of our personal ability or strength or possession that we victoriously continue to put one foot in front of the other… It is by the Strength & Grace & Power & Might & Sustenance of Our God, Most High.
Genesis 18:14.  "How to put one foot in front of the other."

Lets worship Him today as we walk forward not by might, not by power, but by HIS Spirit.

Praise the Lord~
