Have you ever wondered what you are meant to do? Do you need guidance? Then join us below as we discover God’s promise of guidance and how with it, we can always know the perfect will of God!
Promises of the Word:
From Genesis to the last verses of Revelation, God’s promises are written. Many of them we know—at least partly—yet, by examining God’s Word closer, we discover that His promises are more numerous and more wonderful than we could ever imagine!
“God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?”—Numbers 23:19
“In Jesus we hear a resounding ‘yes’ to all of God’s many promises. This is the reason we say ‘Amen’ to and through Jesus when giving glory to God.”—2 Corinthians 1:20 (VOICE)
Every one of our God’s promises is firm, and through the mighty Blood of Yeshua—Jesus—we have access to them. Yet, what are these promises, and what do they mean for us?
God’s Promise of Guidance:
We all look through a glass dimly, seeing only a portion of the picture (see 1 Corinthians 13:12). This is part of the beauty of God and His creation, that there is always something to discover… and eternity in Heaven is not even enough to see it all.
This partial view helps us to keep our eyes fixed on God and protects us from becoming overwhelmed with intricacies. It also reminds us of our need for God. Because we cannot fully understand what to do or where to go without His perfect will. Without His guidance.
Of those who believe in God, few would argue against our innate need for guidance or the perfection of God’s. However, time and again, we allow ourselves to become busy. So much so that we plow through things without stopping for guidance from God. Without inclining our ear to Him. Unfortunately, this not only ends up pulling us away from God’s perfect will but also wastes time.
“Give ear and hear my voice, listen and hear my words.
Does the farmer plow continually to plant seed?
Does he continually turn and harrow the ground?
Does he not level its surface and sow dill and scatter cummin
and plant wheat in rows, barley in its place and rye within its area?
For his God instructs and teaches him properly.
“For dill is not threshed with a threshing sledge,
nor is the cartwheel driven over cummin;
but dill is beaten out with a rod, and cummin with a club.
Grain for bread is crushed, indeed,
he does not continue to thresh it forever.
Because the wheel of his cart and his horses
eventually damage it, he does not thresh it longer.
This also comes from the Lord of hosts,
Who has made His counsel wonderful and His wisdom great.”
—Isaiah 28:23-29 (NASB)
As Isaiah 28:23-29 says, it is important to listen to the teaching of God. A person who does not wastes precious time using the wrong tool in the wrong place or continuing on in a way that was once useful but is no longer right for the current season. Yet, the one who seeks God and listens to His guidance knows when to pick something up and put something down just as they know when to act with gentleness, and when to not.
God is always willing to guide us. Jesus—Yeshua, our Messiah—promised that our Father would grant us the gift of the Holy Spirit, which we now enjoy (see John 14:26). That part of our God who acts as our teacher and guide, He lives inside of us. He speaks continually, with wisdom and the will of God on His lips! The only question is, will we listen? Will we inquire and then stand still long enough to hear His voice? Are we prepared to develop a relationship with God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit? The promise is there, eager to be accepted.
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.”—John 14:26
A season is upon us where we can no longer hope that we are walking in sync with God. It is a time to be intentional in our actions. To remain steadfast with God, with our ears prepared to accept the Lord’s instruction and voice. The enemy desires us to walk out of sync with our God, so that he can hold a legal right to attack God’s children… yet, by accepting God’s promise of guidance with eagerness, the enemy cannot achieve this desire.
God’s ways are perfect and without flaw. His guidance leads us to Kingdom purpose and good. He may not choose to show us the whole picture at once, but that is out of love, not a desire for power. By seeking God’s will and listening to His voice, we are guided to God’s perfect destiny for us! The Children of Israel were guided by God to the Promised Land. Unfortunately, because they focused on the enemies’ lies, they chose not to follow God into the final steps toward it. Their promise had to be delayed because they not only refused to listen, but to act upon that which God spoke…
Let us take the lesson of what they did not do and use it to prompt action. To fix our eyes and ears on God, to be still enough to listen, and then to walk out His guidance in faith. Because the promise of God comes with obedience, and His guidance is without flaw.
“Blessed be the Lord, who has given rest to His people Israel, according to all that He promised. There has not failed one word of all His good promise, which He promised through His servant Moses. May the Lord our God be with us, as He was with our fathers. May He not leave us nor forsake us, that He may incline our hearts to Himself, to walk in all His ways, and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, which He commanded our fathers. And may these words of mine, with which I have made supplication before the Lord, be near the Lord our God day and night, that He may maintain the cause of His servant and the cause of His people Israel, as each day may require, that all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God; there is no other. Let your heart, therefore, be loyal to the Lord our God, to walk in His statutes and keep His commandments, as at this day.”
—1 Kings 8:56-61
Accepting God’s Promises:
No matter which of God’s promises we need, it is important to not only believe, but accept each one. Not because they will be irrecoverable if we fail to properly believe and receive them, but because God does nothing against our will! Because God created each promise intentionally, knowing we need them…
A promise from God holds more power than anyone can fully understand, yet, the power that comes when we accept one promise on top of another, on top of another… that changes our nature. For the better. Shaping us into His image, and preparing us for Kingdom purpose!
It is time to activate and believe God’s promises. To accept and give them a place to reside…
We have to open our hearts. To desire His promises if they are to flourish.
Yes, God will never leave nor forsake us, even if we forsake Him… but do we honestly expect Him to move in power if we say, “no”? But by opening our hearts, changing our habits and patterns to create an atmosphere for Him, and seeking Him and His Kingdom first, we can say, “yes”!
Seek God, and He will come. He will answer. And all of His promises will be ready to rest and flow through us!
