TOPIC: GOD’S GUIDANCE SYSTEM (2)
TEXT: PSALM 25:9 “The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way…”
How can you learn to be guided by the Lord? In three different ways:
1) THROUGH PRAYER. By the Holy Spirit-Jesus the intercessor. You connect with grace of God to find help in times of need Heb 4:16. Moreso, you cast all your burdens unto God 1st Pet 5:6.You become refreshed and empowered; and as you keep fellowshipping in prayers more, more grace is given to you to do as directed by God.
2) THROUGH OBEDIENCE. What use is God’s guidance if you’re not willing to follow it? Also what about the guidance you’ve already received through the Scriptures but haven’t acted on?
Beloved, when you talk to God He definitely talks back. You really need to devote yourself to listening concerning what He wants you to do. However, when we are set to do God’s will the battle starts in our thought realm with every fibre in us not willing, but we should surrender and respond by obeying.
3) THROUGH FAITH. The truth is, you won’t grow spiritually if you close yourself off from the guidance of the Holy Spirit. You must believe – mind-blowing as it sounds – that God really can and does speak to us.
