ORDERED

It is funny how God will awaken you with a song in your head when your back is up against the wall.  He has a way to get your attention.  On Monday morning at 3:00 a.m., I opened my eyes while lying in my bed and the only thing I could hear “Ordered”.  It just seem to be an appropriate word to me.  The more I kept saying “Ordered”, then it struck me.  It was the song Fred Hammond sings.  Sometimes it seems as though no matter what turn I take there is a blockage.  I finally got up and made some coffee.  Within a very short period of time, I could not remember that one word for the rest of the day.  I just kept asking God, what is the word I received this morning.  As the entire day passed, I could not remember that word.  The entire day came and went and I found myself right back in the same spot as the night before.  Another 3:00 a.m. encounter with the same word “Ordered”.  I got up and put the song on and it ministered to me differently than when I had last heard it.  This time, I did not forget it.  Below are the lyrics to “Your Steps Have Been Ordered By God”.

When you’ve been called
To have a relationship with God
When you’ve been called to do something great for him
Sometimes, It just don’t feel good
It’s gone be downright hard sometimes
Down right difficult
But the word of the lord
just simply declares one thing

Every step of a righteous man
Is ordered by God
Ordered
Though you may not know his mind
He will reveal it all in time
Just know till then
Your steps are ordered by God

[Verse 1]
When it seems like my mountains to high
And I’m tired of the climb
When it feels like my patience is frustrated with time
I depend on the spirit
To gently remind

Every step of a righteous man
Is ordered by God
Ordered
Though you may not know his mind
He will reveal it all in time
Just know till then
Your steps are ordered by God

[Verse 2]
When my faith is challenged
And my vision is obscured
When I’m hanging on by a thread
And my footings unsure
I look to the spirit
For one word to help me endure
And that word is ordered

[Vamp:]
Ordered, Ordered, Ordered
Before the world was framed
Ordered, Ordered, Ordered
Before the whole world was framed
Ordered, Ordered, Ordered
Before the whole world was framed

Through the fire
Through the flood
When life takes you through winding turns
Ordered, Ordered, Ordered
[x2]
