We had church service at Abundant Life United Pentecostal Church last night 3/11/2015, and we had a glitch in our live streaming system and were unable to resolve it before service began, so here is an outline of last nights study.
1) Divine Guidance-promised to the obedient
Divine Guidance-promised into pleasent paths
Psa 23:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
[lie down]=to rest
The Lord will lead us into a rest, if we will yield to His guidance
Divine Guidance-promised in making decisions
Psa 25:9 The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.
[meek]=depressed in mind or circumstances, or humble
Divine Guidance-promised unto the end of life
Psa 48:14 For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.
[ever]=ever is for all eternity without end, GOD will guide us from this point forward
Divine Guidance-promised by wise council
Psa 73:24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.
God will show us [by the council of HIS WORD] in the way we should live for Him while on this earth to prepare us for our heavenly home
Divine Guidance-promised by the still small voice
Isa 30:21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
In this fast paced life that we’re living in, can we slow down and listen to the voice of God, so that He can lead us?
Divine Guidance-promised in the midst of uncertainties
Isa 42:16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
If we’re facing a decision that we don’t know the outcome that could be cocerning us with fear of the unknown, GOD has promised us divine guidance in these times
Divine Guidance-promised by divine illumination
Luk 1:79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
2) Divine guidance saught
Divine Guidance saught in rightousness
Psa 5:8 Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.
[righteousness]=righteousness here is living morally right, it is living in HIS ways
Divine Guidance saught in truth
Psa 25:5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
Divine Guidance saught in HIS will
Psa 143:10 Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.
3) GOD is the divine leader
GOD is the divine leader in difficult places
Deu 8:2 And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.
We may go through some difficult places, times-or situations, it may seem hopeless, but this is when we most need the divine leadership to get through, this is when we need to stand firm to HIS WORD
GOD is the divine leader in the plain path
Psa 27:11 Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
GOD is the divine leader like a shepherd
Psa 77:20 Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
GOD is the divine leader to no place beyond the reach of his hand
Psa 139:9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
Psa 139:10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
[wings]=the edge or extremity,
There is no place we can go that the LORD cannot help us in our life, if we will trust in HIM, and recieve HIS guidance
GOD is the divine Leader to the border of the unseen
Luk 24:50 And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
Luk 24:51 And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
4)The Holy Spirit guides us
The Holy Spirit guides us into all thruth
Joh 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.
The Holy Spirit guides us in the movement of believers
Act 10:19 While Peter thought on the vision, the Spirit said unto him, Behold, three men seek thee.
Act 10:20 Arise therefore, and get thee down, and go with them, doubting nothing: for I have sent them.
The Holy Spirit guides us in the selection of christian leaders
Act 13:2 As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.
The Holy Spirit Guides us in the fields of operation
Act 16:6 Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,
The Holy Spirit guides us in obediance to, a mark of sonship
Rom 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
5) We have divine guidance in prayer
We have divine guidance in prayer as the holy spirit aids in prayer
Rom 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
Rom 8:27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
If we want God’s divine guidance in our decisions,if we want divine guidance in our life, whether it be in the natural, or whether it be in the spiritual,
The first place we need go to start is in PRAYER ,Prayer is essential, Prayer is Key in recieving divine guidance,
The second place we need to go to is the WORD-OF-GOD-(THE BIBLE),
And we have our church services where we hear the word of GOD preached and teached, so that we recieve instuction and guidance.
And we have our Pastor to pray with us and to council us in our spiritual walk with the LORD.
