Guidance

Guidance

As we look to the Lord for His instruction in every situation, we give Him the leading and He is able to guide us continually. He never stops guiding our steps, and our stops.

His directions are very specific and never the same. We learn to recognize that His word is alive and active and we take heed to it, moment by moment. If He said to do a certain thing in time past, it doesn’t mean it still is His will for today. We can become stuck if we do not seek His will, continually. One example is Abraham. He was asked to give his son Isaac as a sacrifice. When it came time for him to do so, the angel stopped him. If Abraham was determined to just walk in obedience to the first instructions, he would have missed God’s will for that moment.

The Lord’s guidance is also connected to His timing. Something that was no yesterday, may be yes today. Something that was yes, yesterday, may be no today. It could be regarding various things He led us to and through. The key is to take heed to His voice. If He doesn’t give new direction regarding a specific situation, it means we wait until He does. God wants us to hear Him and make our way clear. As we continually ask Him, surely He will continually guide us, from glory to glory!

Isaiah 58:11 “The LORD will guide you continually, And satisfy your soul in drought, And strengthen your bones; You shall be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.”

 

Who is Calling?

Who is Calling?

Have you ever had a boss, principal, teacher or pastor call you into their office? When somebody calls you in, you might think, “This can’t be good. What have I done wrong?” These thoughts come from the lies satan speaks so we will expect the worst instead of the best. As we grow in the knowledge of God’s ways, we know that when God calls us in—it’s always beneficial.

God calls us in when He leads us closer to Him; when we spend more and more time in worship; when we are so intimate in our prayer time with Him that all else becomes invisible; when He has specific instructions to give us for what He wants us to do. We can expect the outcome to be glorious. His will is what’s best for us. When the Holy Spirit calls us to bring light in areas that need to be changed, He does so with love, edification and exhortation. He convicts with no condemnation. He calls out what can no longer stay with us and calls forth His ability to help us conquer what He shows us.

Even in situations when others might correct us in a wrong manner, God will use it for good because of His call upon our lives. In all situations, we can depend on God’s calling to supersede all others as He takes us from glory to glory!

Romans 8:1 “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”
