God's Leading

 

The question is not whether or not God leads. The question is whether or not we acknowledge Him in all our ways so that He can direct our paths. Proverbs 3:6

God leads. Some people refuse to acknowledge Him. He turns those who refuse to acknowledge Him over to their own reprobate minds. Romans 1:18, 21, 24, 26, 28.

God does guide. In fact, this is the very way that hope and faith come. He gives a vision of hope. He shows you the you that you are destined to be in Christ. He shows you the Christ in you, the real you. He shows you what is and is not the Body of Christ. He shows you how you fit in that Body. Then, He gives you His faith (supernatural trust) that only comes when you hear His utterance. And, it is faith that gives you access to His grace and His grace that does His works though you (following His guiding Light).

Psalm 23:1-3 THE EXISTENT ONE  is my shepherd; I shall not decrease.  He makes me lie down in green pastures: He leads me beside the still waters.  He restores my soul: He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His Name's sake.

James 1:5-8 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that gives to all men liberally, and upbraids not; and it shall be given him.  But let him ask in supernatural belief, nothing wavering. For he who wavers is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.  For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.  A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

Proverbs 28:26 He who trusts in his own heart is a fool: but whoever walks wisely, he shall be delivered

Jeremiah 17:5-9 Thus says THE EXISTENT ONE; Cursed is the man that trusts in man, and makes flesh his arm, and whose heart departs from THE EXISTENT ONE.  For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good comes; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.  Blessed is the man that trusts in THE EXISTENT ONE, and whose hope [hope is a vision of leading from God] THE EXISTENT ONE is.  For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreads out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat comes, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be anxious in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.  The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Proverbs 3:5-7 Trust in THE EXISTENT ONE  with all your heart; and lean not to your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.  Be not wise in your own eyes: reverence THE EXISTENT ONE, and depart from evil.

Proverbs 3:11-12 My son, despise not the chastening of THE EXISTENT ONE; neither be weary of His correction:  For whom THE EXISTENT ONE  loves He corrects; even as a father the son in whom he delights.

Proverbs 2:2-11 So that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding;  Yes, if you cry after knowledge, and lift up your voice for understanding;  If you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures;  Then shall you understand the reverence of THE EXISTENT ONE, and find the knowledge of God.  For THE EXISTENT ONE  gives wisdom: out of his mouth comes knowledge and understanding.  He lays up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to those who walk uprightly.  He keeps the paths of judgment, and preserves the way of his saints.  Then shall you understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yes, every good path.  When wisdom enters into your heart, and knowledge is pleasant to your soul;  Discretion shall preserve you, understanding shall keep you;

Luke 11:33-36 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light. The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness. If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.

John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

This doesn't mean that each time that we do every routine task we stop and kneel and pray to ask God how to do each step. As with prophecy, where we yield ourselves to God and He forms the words in our mouth, God is in the routine when we are in submission to Him. When we speak by the Spirit, we yield ourselves to His Spirit, and He speaks through us. Sometimes this revelation surprises us. Sometimes, He brings things to our memory, just as He said that the Holy Spirit would. However, He is not just involved in church services. The Scripture tells us to do ALL things in His Name. To do anything in His Name means that He is the One Who is doing whatever you are doing. You are in submission to Him. He is thinking the thought, saying the word, or doing the work. It is an attitude of submission to the King of kings, constantly standing in His Presence. There are deeper depths and higher heights for those who are called to enter into them. Eventually, He will be All in all.

Going deeper, how do you know it's God leading you and not your own mind? God says that the human mind is deceitful and desparately wicked to the point that you cannot know it. Scientific experimentation and observation confirms this (another way that God reveals). So how can you tell if you are really hearing from God? The question has a presupposition in it that has to be unpacked and examined. If we ask, "How can you tell?" we are presupposing that it's up to you. The fact is that it is not based on you and your mental ability. It is up to God to reveal. Your part is to continue to seek Him and to walk in humility. In humility, you never say that you know anything as you ought to know it. You are always waiting for the Holy Spirit to correct you. Sometimes, your natural mind will fool you and take you off course, but the Great Shepherd will bring you back if you remain a sheep and don't turn into a goat. The promise is that whoever seeks Him finds Him.
