DIVINE GUIDANCE : THE WAY TO EXCELLENCE
MAIN TEXT: 2 SAMUEL 5: 19 (NIV)
So David inquired of the Lord, “shall I go and attack the Philistines? Will you hand them over to me?” The Lord answered him “go, for I will surely hand them over to you.”
1 Kings 17: 9 (NIV)
“Go at once to Zarephath of Sidon and stay there. I have commanded a widow in that place to supply you with food.”
Beloved, it is expedient that before you start the day’s activities you seek and follow divine directions to avoid unnecessary stress, mistakes, regrets or pains. Allow God to order your steps for by strength shall no man prevail. Without divine direction reverse is the case.
When you receive divine direction, you are focused, confident and victorious. In our main text, David wanted to embark on a journey of pursuit and recovery, he didn’t just start pursuing because he had the horses, chariots and warriors, he first sort for divine direction and God directed him to go. When he didn’t know where his enemies were, God divinely positioned someone who led him to where he pursued, over took his enemies, and recovered all he had lost.
What or where ever we go to or do in life without proper guidance or direction will surely end up as a fruitless exercise.
Therefore, If you want to succeed in anything you want to embark on, you must involve God in it, seeking his counsel, directive or opinion. This is important because it is he that created you, he knows the purpose for creating you, He knows how and when you can achieve it.
FOLLOWING DIVINE DIRECTION BRINGS SUCCESS AND JOY IN THE END.
