MY FOOT HAS HELD HIS STEPS, HIS WAY HAVE I KEPT, AND NOT DECLINED." (Job 23:ll) Job focused on the directional guidance of the Spirit through one foot. That's why he said, his "foot has held his steps." It is much more difficult to focus on following the Spirit through both feet, so Job solved the problem by focusing through one foot. The other foot will follow after it. The Spirit of the anointing is not such that one would be able to see the Spirit when the holy Ghost is manifest in fullness within, but by tensing the one foot, the movements of the Spirit are felt as the two become one. That is why it is important in the Spirit to not walk by sight to where the flesh would think to go, but to follow the leadings of the Spirit both through singleness of eye and by walking in his steps. As you might imagine, to become a Master requires the individual to master all of the techniques of walking in the Spirit.
"WHEN I WASHED MY STEPS WITH BUTTER, AND THE ROCK POURED ME OUT RIVERS OF OIL;..." Job 29:6 How did that holy man Job follow the Spirit with his foot? One of the techniques is to wash one's steps with butter. When the living sacrifice is not sure which direction to go, he tightens down on the grip he has on his feet; and moves them about as though there was butter beneath him until he regains the leading for his feet. Keep in mind, the anointed man of God is moving in the Spirit with his entire body. It is easy to lose focus on one part of it.
"YOU HAVE ENLARGED MY STEPS UNDER ME; SO THAT MY FEET DID NOT SLIP." (2 Samuel 22:37) The consciousness of they the Lord's anointed steps is increased. His consciousness of his steps is enlarged by the Spirit, so his feet would not slip. This is likely to occur in a dangerous situation where to slip could be deadly, so the focus of the Lord's anointed tends to their feet more than usual. Climbing in the rocks of a mountain or fighting on foot in battle or walking on ice would be situations where the Lord's anointed would focus more than usual on his steps. By increasing his focus, the Spirit responds by enlarging the perception of the anointed man of God's steps beyond the capability of human awareness alone.

"RIGHTEOUSNESS SHALL GO BEFORE HIM; AND SHALL SET US IN THE WAY OF HIS STEPS:" (Psalm 85:l3) Jeremiah the Prophet speaks of predestination when he writes: "O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walks to direct his steps." (Jeremaih l0:23) Mankind is moved subconsciously to fulfill their individual destinies without knowing God's workings in their lives. "A man's heart devises his way: but the LORD directs his steps." (Proverbs l6:9) Once a believer is called into sainthood where he perceives the Lord directing his steps in the anointing of the Spirit, it is easier to understand the greatness of God who is the beginning and the end of all things. God not only knows the number of hairs on everyone's head, he numbers our steps. God counted holy Job's steps (Job l4:l6/3l:4) who prayed in the desperation of his situation to make his testimony evident to God how he had held stedfast to the leadings of the Spirit, saying: "IF MY STEP HAS TURNED OUT OF THE WAY, AND MY HEART WALKED AFTER MY EYES, AND IF ANY BLOT HAS CLEAVED TO MY HANDS; THEN LET ME SOW, AND LET ANOTHER EAT; YEA, LET MY OFFSPRING BE ROOTED OUT." (Job 3l:7/8) Righteousness went before Job in the anointing of the Spirit's manisfestations and set him in the way of his steps. He had not turned aside to the flesh after having learned to walk in the Spirit as a Master of the faith and he was letting God Almighty know how greatly he was sure of his testimony.
"FOR EVEN HEREUNTO WERE YOU CALLED: BECAUSE CHRIST ALSO SUFFERED FOR US, LEAVING US AN EXAMPLE, THAT YOU SHOULD FOLLOW HIS STEPS:" (l Peter 2:2l) The Lord's feet were pierced on the cross as a sign to us that our feet are as much a part of the living sacrifice as any other part of the body. Christ is our example. He walked in the steps of the Spirit, and every Saint ought to do the same. Otherwise you cannot expect to fully abide in his heavenly Life.
"Walked we not in the same Spirit? Walked we not in the same steps?" (2 Corinthians l2:l8) How did the Apostle know he walked in the same steps as Titus? In the anointing, the living sacrifice does not walk by sight. By following the leading of the Spirit, they both ended up at the same destination without knowing where they are going.
