May 26: Receiving Divine Guidance

Psalms 37:23

The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and He delighteth in his ways.

Jeremiah 10:23

O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.

Receiving divine guidance is key to fulfilling your destiny. You cannot reach your goal in life without receiving divine guidance. God designed your destiny, you did not; and so He alone can guide you into it. It is evident from God’s Word that the way of man is not in himself. Jeremiah cried out by the Spirit of God in Jeremiah 10:23 “O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.” It is not in man that walks to direct his own steps. It is not within your jurisdiction and capacity to direct your own steps. This is why it is important that we receive divine guidance daily as we walk towards God’s set destiny for us. The software that runs your life is not in you, it’s in the Spirit of God within you. Therefore, you must lean on Him to guide you a step at a time into that place that He’s prepared for you.

God guided Abraham from the Ur of the Chaldeans, to the place that He had prepared for him. He led him to an inheritance. When God leads, He always leads to an inheritance. There are things the Lord has prepared for you. He made provisions ready for you before He created you and gave you a vision for life. Never forget this: Provision always comes before vision. God had made the earth ready before He made man. Everything man will ever need to fulfil his purpose had been created before he came on the scene. God knows the place He has prepared for you, and you will get there if you lean on Him and let Him lead you. Psalms 23:1 is very clear on this matter. It says that the Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. When you let the Lord lead you, you will never want. What God told Abraham essentially in Genesis 12:1 was “Follow me and I will take you to a place that I will show you”; not to a place that you know.” If someone is taking you by the hand to a place that he intends to show you, then it’s a place that you do not know; you can only get to that place by leaning on the person’s intelligence and guidance, true? You don’t know the way to your destination, but the Spirit does. So, let Him lead you there. He will guide you through your spirit, the core of your being (Proverbs 20:27), as you engage in meditation in the Word and prayer.


My Solid Front (Confession): 

Heavenly Father, I acknowledge that the direction of my life is not in my hands, but in yours; You are the Guide of my youth. Therefore, I look up to You today for guidance and I thank You because by Your Spirit within me, You guide into all that You have prepared for me. Amen.
