The understanding of the believer, in clarity and depth, is what determine how much of the kingdom life he will experience Psa. 119:144; Pro. 21:16. A fundamental of this, is the understanding that new birth made the believer into a sheep in God’s pasture or fold Psa. 100:3; Mat. 10:16. The sheep will always need the shepherd no matter its age, experience and strength. Therefore, ever believer that will maximize the kingdom life must allow the Lord to be his shepherd or he risks experiencing a life of struggle and frustration Psa. 23:1-6; Jer. 10:23-24.
The Significance of Divine Direction.
Why the believer must seek to be directed by God.
Redemption turned the believer into a problem solver and a solution carrier thereby making him a blessing in life Gen. 22:16-18; Gal. 3:13-14,29. This is irrespective of his background, family, education or finance.
We live in a world of battles, but redemption positions the believer for unquestionable victory always Eph. 2:6; 1:20-21; Rms. 8:35-38. The conquest of the believer has nothing to do with his credentials, human connection or background, it is absolutely redemption dependent.
It is by the leading of God that the believer is guaranteed to step into his enviable destiny in Christ Isa. 48:17; Gen. 26:1-3,12-14.
Every decision we make is either right or wrong, to our advantage or disadvantage, takes us closer to or farther from our glorious destiny Jer. 2:13-17; Pro. 3:5-8. Divine guidance always put man on the right path, taking us closer to our destiny in Christ, but no one can make the decision for another Deu. 28:1-2; Jer. 6:16.
The Cost of wrong or Misdirection.
It may lead to the ruin of destiny, if it is not corrected in good time Pro. 14:12. Peter is a good case study; he was sent to the circumcision, but missed his way to the Gentiles and became a victim of hypocrisy Gal. 2:8,11-14.
Wonders of Divine Direction.
No one follows divine leading and live a normal life. There are certain things that happen as the believer walks in divine path that makes his life not to be ordinary again.
When one follow God’s path, all that the enemy has stolen and destroyed, or one has lost are restored back supernaturally 1Sam. 30:8,18-20. In essence, you are not struggling but having everything back in life, which will make others to ask how you are doing it.
The believer commits God to the supply of all his needs as long as he is on the path God led him Lk. 22:35; Isa. 48:17; Exo. 13:17-18; 16:8. In essence, the economic climate has no effect on the believer’s life again, which makes him to become different in life.
God leads in the path of peace and pleasantness Psa. 25:9,12-13; Pro. 3:16-17; 1Jn. 5:3. In essence, others may be experiencing troubles, but the believer’s portion is peace as he follows divine path.
In conclusion, no one follows God’s leading and ever regret it. No one follows divine direction that does not end in greatness. The good news is that anyone can be led by God; it is all a matter of making the choice!
To anyone reading this that will love to give his/her life to Christ, pray this prayer out loud with me from your heart: “Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins; wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me, thank you Jesus for restoring me, thank you Jesus for saving me. Amen!”
