Foundation of STEP

Since we live by the Spirit,

let us keep in step with the Spirit.

~ Galatians 5:25 ~  (NIV)  

A good foundation is essential. Buildings. Bridges. Beliefs. Each needs a foundation that is solid, level and longstanding. As parents - we were shaken to our core when one of our

kids ventured deep into bondage to alcohol and the terror of addiction. We did the best

we could walking on a foreign path, yet we tripped, stumbled and faltered daily. Then - as it continues to be today - our saving grace rests on the foundation God provides.

No matter what happens ~ Abba God will not let go of us!

The LORD makes firm the steps

of the one who delights in Him;

Though he may stumble, he will not fall,

for the LORD upholds him with His hand.

~ Psalm 37:23-24 ~

We lean heavily into the foundation of God's Word to establish STEP.

     S ~ Surrender yourself and the ones you love to God. ~

  

You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions;

Stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you....

~ II Chronicles 20:17 (a) ~

Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.

Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done.

Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand.

His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

~ Philippians 4:6-7 ~

(NLT)

     T ~ Trust God! ~

   

For it is God who works in you to will and

to act in order to fulfill His good purpose.

~ Philippines 2:13 ~

 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good

to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

~ Romans 8:28 ~

 

     E ~ Embrace the support and education God provides. ~

   

Wisdom is a tree of life to those who embrace her;

Happy are those who hold her tightly.

~ Proverbs 3:17 ~

( NLT )

 

In the same way, wisdom is sweet to your soul. If you find it,

you will have a bright future, and your hopes will not be cut short.

 Proverbs 24:14  ~

( NLT )

 

     P ~ Pursue the life God designs for you. ~

    

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it spring up; do you not perceive it?

~ Isaiah 43:18-19 ~

( NIV )

 

God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times,

Having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

 ~ II Corinthians 9:8 ~

( NIV )

Love it.
