Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 16:9
In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps.

Psalms 37:23
The LORD makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him;

Proverbs 20:24
The LORD directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way?

After graduating from Bible college I was unsure of what my next step should be.  It seemed like I needed to make an immediate decision and I allowed myself to get anxious.  One afternoon I was talking with my roommate about how I needed to decide where I was going to live and what job I was going to take and she said to me,  "Allyson, you might not know it, but you ARE being directed."  You see, I had been WAITING for direction, all along I was ALREADY being directed.  

So many Christians are waiting for God to move- they are waiting for Him to provide, to heal, or to lead them.  He already did it!  Now we can rest and receive what His grace has already provided (Faith takes what grace has already provided)!  
Sometimes when He gives you the next step for your life it won't make sense to you, take it anyway!  Step out in faith.  
I like how Proverbs 20:24 puts it, "The Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way?"  
Are you delighting yourself in Him?  Then rest assured, He is directing you and His plans for you are GOOD- plans to PROSPER you!  His plans are for you to live life abundantly!  His plans are for you to be healthy and strong!  
Where He leads, take a step of faith and follow.  

Isaiah 30:21
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it."
