The Psalmist makes a declaration with military overtones when he says, ‘The steps of a good man/woman are ordered by the Lord’. He pictures the Christian walk like the rhythmic and symmetrical matching of soldiers. Could it be that your walk as a Christian is not supposed to be haphazard but rather must be well patterned, rhythmic, symmetrical and manifesting spiritual equilibrium. The Hebrew word for ‘order’ is ARAK which means to direct, to determine, to ordain, to ARRANGE. Therefore the steps of a good man/woman are arranged by the Lord. I am persuaded to say that nothing happens by accident, coincidence or by luck in the life of a child of God. May I increase your Christian vocabulary by introducing you to another name I have coined to describe God. I call him JEHOVAH ARAK:THE GOD OF DIVINE ARRANGEMENT. This is the God who arranged the steps of four poorly lepers to turn into a sound of a mighty army. Saul thought he was looking for his father’s lost donkeys, only to realise that this was a divine arrangement to get him anointed as the first King of Israel. The Samaritan woman thought she was going to fetch water only to realise that Jehovah Arak had a divine arrangement for her to fetch her season. The list is endless. I am also fully aware that the devil tries to counter what God does in your life by bringing Demonic arrangements to derail you from God. But I disarrange every demonic arrangement over your life in Jesus’ name. No weapon that is arranged against you shall prosper. Remember that the Psalmist goes on to say that even though you stumble but you will not fall. May God turn your stumbling blocks into stepping stones towards your destiny. My advise to you is: STAY GOOD & STAY GOING. Joseph maintained his integrity throughout his life. He stayed good and stayed going despite being thrown into the pit, being sold to the Ishmaelites, being a slave in Potiphar’s house and being thrown into prison. May Jehovah Arak arrange your steps in 2015.
