A good man: One who has been granted righteousness because He has received Jesus' sacrifice. If this is not true then my question is, how does one know when he has achieved enough goodness on his own to merit God's blessings? Steps are ordered by the Lord: I believe this is in reference to God giving direction to the believer by revealing His Word to him/her about a situation(s) or by giving information needed to be victorious in whatever situation one is facing.

Ps 37:23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
First and foremost how does man become good even before God? Secondly how does God order the steps of This good man?
1) The good man.
a) Luke 8:15 But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience. The heart must be made good to produce fruit, since it was eroded of its goodness through adamic sin, the sin of disobedience.
This can only be achieved through receiving Christ as ones personal saviour, receiving forgiveness of sin and cleansing from all unrighteousness through the blood of Jesus Christ our Lord. This is the beginning of the new life.
If a good heart starts from hearing and being convicted of the word of God toward receiving Christ as one's personal saviour and this is what makes a good man therefore I conclude by saying what orders the steps of this good man is the word of God. It is the word of God that will keep you away from falling if you obey it.

I believe the Scripture speaks to the man who on his journey makes sound decision and judgement when facing life's challenges will then in turn bring delight to the Lord who in turn will take him up with Him. It is speaking to the heart of man by simply saying: do good and what's right and it will pay off
