“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” Romans 8:14
There was perfect leading by God on the journey of the children of Israel. The length of stay in a place and how fast to move was dictated by the Lord. They were led by the Lord as pillar of clouds by day and pillar of fire by night – Ex 13: 21. None of the children of Israel asked any question on the leader¬ship of the Lord. If there was any disagreement on leadership, it was not about the pillars of clouds and fire. God is still leading His children today on their journey to Heaven.
THE NEED FOR GOD’S LEADING
The Lord led the children of Israel to what they felt was bad so that their enemies would perish in the Red Sea. The pillar was light to Israel but darkness to the Egyptians – Ex. 14:19-20.
Jesus Christ was led by the Spirit of God to be tempted in the wilderness – Matt. 4: 1. God’s leading will surely make one steadfast, not going astray – Jn 16:13. The leading of God is required when judgment is to be pronounced – I Kings 21:17, 2 Kings 1:3-4.
The leading of God is essential, more so for the way to the kingdom of God which only God knows – Isa 42:16, Isa 30:21, Exo 13:21-22. Daily living requires divine leadership – I Kings. 19: 15: Exo 3: 10: Gen. 24: 27. Divine supplies are often guided by God – I Kings 17: 3-4. John 2:1-6.
METHODS OF GOD’S LEADING TODAY
Children of God are led by the Spirit of God – Rom. 8: 14 – but the methods of leading are many. The Holy Spirit is given to man to guide into all truths – John 16: 13: Acts.8:26-28.
God can equally lead in visions. God led Jacob to Egypt- Gen. 46:2-6. God led Paul to Macedonia through a vision-Acts.16: 9-10. Paul was led to continue in Corinth – Acts. 18: 9-11. Peter and Cornelius were connected by the spirit in a vision – Acts 10: 1-25. God can equally lead His Children through dreams. In Matt. 2: 13-15, Joseph was instructed in a dream to carry Jesus Christ to Egypt for safety.
The word stands as a very good guide. The word of prophecy is another method of God’s leading. Agabus prophesied the suffering of Paul – Acts. 21: 10-14. It must be noted that holy men of God were led by the Holy Spirit to prophesy – 2 Pet. 4:19-21. There are other methods of God’s leading such as the still – small voice – I Kings. 19: 12.
That there are false leadings today does not erase the fact that God is still in the business of leading His children. He led the children of Israel in the wilderness. He led the early Christians and He is still leading today.
- He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
- For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.
- Lead me in thy truth, and teach me.
- I being in the way, the LORD led me to the house of my master’s brethren.
- God always leads aright.
- Go in this thy might.
- God leads us with His great hands.
