Divine Direction

Divine Direction By Kirk Hunt

In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths..

Proverbs 3:6 NKJV

What do you hear when someone speaks of “God’s divine direction?”  Does the pillar of fire and smoke come to mind?  Do you think of the angel that led Peter out of prison?

God’s direction and guidance can be miraculous and mystical.  Scripture is too full of examples to say otherwise.  Still, the visitation of angels is not part of a typical day in an office cubicle.  A glory-cloud does not often appear while driving to the supermarket.

God promises to guide us, if we acknowledge that we need His direction.  He desires to lead us past, around or through every circumstance in our lives.  If God leads you, despite the difficulties, there will always be joy and delight in your journey.

Cultivate a heart that listens for Him.  You may not be the cleverest soul alive, but you can live that way.  Be determined to hear from Him.

Study Scripture, regularly and often.  In those moments of reverent quiet, He will speak with you.  Hidden in study, God will find you.  There is no faster or more secure route to His guidance.

If Bible study gives so much, why is it often missing in our lives?  We think we do not have the time.  We believe it is beyond us.  We look for less accountability.

Decide you want God’s direction in your life.  The only entrance fee is making study of His Word a priority for your life.  If you seek Him, He will find you.  His Word promises you that.

Think:        I can have God’s direction if I want it.

Pray:           “Lord, help me to be guided by You.”

Moving Forward By Kirk Hunt

 

In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

Proverbs 3:6 NKJV

 

What do you hear when someone speaks of “God’s divine direction?” Does the pillar of fire and smoke come to mind? What is the form and format of moving forward in God?

 

God’s direction and guidance can indeed be miraculous and mystical. Scripture is too full of examples to say otherwise. Still, the visitation of angels is not part of a usual day in an office cubicle. A glory-cloud does not often appear while driving to the supermarket.

 

Does God only speak to Biblical heroes? What about the rest of us? How do mere men and women like us receive guidance? Does God only speak to the high and mighty among us?

 

Your easiest and fastest route to God is His Word. Study Scripture, regularly and often. In those moments of reverent quiet, He will speak with you. Hidden in study, God will find you.

 

It is not that hard or difficult. You can seek God’s direction for your life, today. You do not have to be a spiritual giant to have His Word in your life. His guidance is not for a favorite few.

 

All you have to do is decide you want God’s direction in your life. The only entrance fee is your willingness to make study of His Word a priority for your life. If you seek Him, He will find you. His Word promises you that.

 

Think:            I can have God’s direction for my life through study of His Word.

 

Pray:               “Lord, help me to hear Your heart through Your Word.

The Gift Of Direction

The Gift Of Direction By Kirk Hunt

 

Listen now to my voice; I will give you counsel, and God will be with you

Exodus 18:19a NKJV

 

Jethro did not ask a question.  He did not make a request.  Jethro gave direction and expected it to be followed.

 

Scripture does not say if Jethro gave his direction out of the public eye.  Nor does it say if Jethro confronted Moses in public.  Scripture does record that Jethro delivered his payload of direction without equivocation or ambiguity.  It is not hard to imagine Jethro, pointing to his wrist sundial, and tapping his foot.

 

Leaders get input from a wide variety of people and sources.  Often, that input comes whether you want it or not.  I would not recommend that you accept direction from everyone.  Still, there should be someone in your life who has the prerogative of being bossy.

 

Moses followed Jethro’s direction to train then task others.  Maybe he was grateful for the direction.  Maybe it did not set well with him.  He followed his direction, regardless.

 

Godly men and women seek God’s direction.  If He does not send angels as His couriers, He most likely will send men and women.  And He does not always send the soft-spoken and gracious folks.

 

Good and wise direction comes from God.  Scripture does not promise that your ego will be stroked at the same time.  Still, seek God’s direction, regardless of the messenger.

 

Think:            Even leaders need to take direction at times.

Pray:              “Lord, help me hear the direction You send.”
