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.”
