Question #3: How important is divine direction?…
If you attended Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministries’ cross over to 2017 night, you will know that one of the 10 survival keys for this year according to the General Overseer, Dr D.K Olukoya, is to seek divine direction on a daily basis.
Let’s first define divine and direction. Dirctionary.com defines divine as something relating to the Supreme Being and direction as the line along which something lies, faces, moves, with reference to the point or region toward which it is directed.
As true children of the Most High, we have to understand that whatever we achieve or earned on this earth, is by His grace and all glory belongs to Him. You may say that you worked for your money, but don’t forget that He has given you the body to do that, the mind to create brilliant ideas and good health to have the energy to make that money.
Everything we have right now is a gift from God.
Decision making is inevitable on this earth. We make decisions consciously and unconsciously to move forward in all areas of our lives. But, it is quite unfortunate that we allow emotions, impressions, human advice and other forms of feelings to heavily influence them.
This shouldn’t be so.
God is the ONLY one who understands and knows our past and future. In fact, he is gracious enough to reveal them to us… if ONLY we ask him. Isaiah 30 v 19 -21, NLT version, reads:
19. O people of Zion, who live in Jerusalem,
you will weep no more.
He will be gracious if you ask for help.
He will surely respond to the sound of your cries.
20. Though the Lord gave you adversity for food
and suffering for drink,
he will still be with you to teach you.
You will see your teacher with your own eyes.
21. Your own ears will hear him.
Right behind you a voice will say,
“This is the way you should go,”
How comforting are these words? It simply means that if we ask, we will surely get answers to our questions.
God is willing and ready to lead us to the path that will fulfil His plans for our lives if only we are ready and willing to build a strong relationship with Him and obey His commandments.
Also, we have to understand that God CAN NEVER lead us astray. He is ABOVE all these silly mistakes we make when we take decisions without asking Him. His decisions are always right, and He is the ONLY one that knows the directions we should follow to get to our divine destinies.
How can we receive divine direction from God as true children of the Most High? Firstly, we have to acknowledge that He is God and is capable of answering our prayers. Secondly, pray and ask God for wisdom – this is because we need to be able to difference God’s voice from our voices, or another spirit’s voice. It is so important.
Finally, believe that He will guide you accordingly like He guided Abram (Genesis 12:1), Jacob (Genesis 31:3), Moses (Exodus 3:10), David ( 2 Samuel 5:19) and the rest in the Bible.
If He has done it before, He can do it again.
God is the source of all wisdom. This year, allow Him to be number one in any decision that you make and watch your live change for better; lifetime success is sure for you if you do.
