“Divine Direction” By Kirk Hunt
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths..
Proverbs 3:6 NKJV
What do you hear when someone speaks of “God’s divine direction?” Does the pillar of fire and smoke come to mind? Do you think of the angel that led Peter out of prison?
God’s direction and guidance can be miraculous and mystical. Scripture is too full of examples to say otherwise. Still, the visitation of angels is not part of a typical day in an office cubicle. A glory-cloud does not often appear while driving to the supermarket.
God promises to guide us, if we acknowledge that we need His direction. He desires to lead us past, around or through every circumstance in our lives. If God leads you, despite the difficulties, there will always be joy and delight in your journey.
Cultivate a heart that listens for Him. You may not be the cleverest soul alive, but you can live that way. Be determined to hear from Him.
Study Scripture, regularly and often. In those moments of reverent quiet, He will speak with you. Hidden in study, God will find you. There is no faster or more secure route to His guidance.
If Bible study gives so much, why is it often missing in our lives? We think we do not have the time. We believe it is beyond us. We look for less accountability.
Decide you want God’s direction in your life. The only entrance fee is making study of His Word a priority for your life. If you seek Him, He will find you. His Word promises you that.
Think: I can have God’s direction if I want it.
Pray: “Lord, help me to be guided by You.”
