Biblical Texts

 John 10:1-16
 Acts 14:26
 Isaiah 28:9-11
 Isaiah 58:11

What is Divine Guidance?

 It is to be led by the direction of God, (Romans 8:14)
 It is to operate from the supernatural level, (John 3:27; Colossians 3:3)
 It is to live above the realm of sense knowledge
 It is to operate at a level high above the realm of principalities and powers of darkness
 It is to live and walk by Revelation Knowledge

Why Do You Need Divine Guidance?

 You are not qualified to lead yourself, (Jeremiah 10:23; Proverbs 16:25)
 You are surrounded by evil and spiritual attacks, (1 Peter 5:8; 2 Corinthians 10;3-4)
 Safety is of the Lord – without Him, you cannot survive, (Proverbs 21:31)
 The ways of God are higher than ours, (Isaiah 55:8-9)

How to Enjoy Divine Guidance:

 Admit your need for the Chief Shepherd
 Become a sheep of the Chief Shepherd
 Desire for Divine Guidance
 Recognize the voice of the Shepherd
 Be willing to dwell in the fold
 Humble yourself
 Recognize the ministry of the Holy Spirit
 Invite the Holy Spirit as your Teacher and Guide

Means of Divine Guidance:

 The Perfect Will of God:

What is the will of God?

• It is God’s expressed intention(s) concerning His children
• It is His stated ways of getting things done aright to merit His reward
• It is the destiny purpose, or assignment He designed for your life
• It is discovering His plans, purposes and whole-heartedly pursuing after them

 Types of will

• The perfect will
• The permissible will
• The imperfect will

 The nature of God’s will

• It is good and beneficial for all those concerned
• It is time-bound and has specific durations
• It is generally acceptable and peaceable
• It is absolute and not subject to debates
• It enriches dependents of the first line of beneficiaries
• It is based on absolute obedience of the beneficiaries

 The word of God, (Psalm 119:105,130; Hebrews 4:12)
– It is a searchlight to guide our path
– It is a beacon to illuminate our way
– It is an anchor to weigh our souls
– It is a compass to direct our steps
– It is a blueprint to build the foundation of our faith
– It is a charter to establish our hope

 The inner witness
– The voice of the Holy Spirit within us
– The voice of our recreated and developed human spirit

• How to develop your human spirit

 By meditating on the word of God,(Joshua 1;8; Ps 1;2; Acts 20:32)
 By praying in tongues, (Jude 20;I Corinthians 14:4)
 By fellowshipping with the Holy Spirit,(John 16:7)
 By maintaining a tender conscience,(I John 1:9-10; Acts23:1; 24:16)
 By practising the Presence of God,(Exodus 33:14-15; Hebrews 13:15)

Other Means of Divine Guidance:

 Unconscious Guidance
 Dreams and Trances
 Inner Peace
 Ministrations of the Word
 Inner Impressions or Witness
 The Audible Voice
 The Inaudible Voice

Examples of Divine Guidance

 King Soul and the lost asses of his father,(1 Samuel 9;1-27)
 David and the Amalek raiders,(1 Samuel 30: 1-19)
 Gideon and the Golden Fleece,( Judges 6:36-40)

Conclusion:

The key lesson about Enjoying Divine Guidance is that for everyone who embraces it, peace of mind is guaranteed; lost hope is restored, and everlasting life is assured. It is our prayer that your life will mark a memorable New Beginning from now on, in Jesus’ Name!


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
