Divine Guidance

Key Verse

“And I will bring the blind by a way that they know 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” (Isaiah 42:16).

Text — 2 Samuel 5:17-25


S. D. Gordon says, “It’s safe to trust God’s methods, and to go by His clock.” Life is compared to a pilgrimage or battle that is full of uncertainties. There is the Omniscient God, who alone knows the end from the beginning. His guidance is not a guess work or a trial-and-error style like that of human guides.  It is always sure even in the midst of uncertainties. 

From our text David fought his battles the way God instructed him to. In each instance, he asked if he should fight or not. He followed divine instructions carefully and gave God the glory. He never lost any battle, even when he had no clue as to the path to victory. He once fed his enemy who later showed him the way to victory (1 Samuel 30:11-18).

To enjoy divine guidance a youth should avoid doing things in his or her own way and ignoring biblical advice of mature believers. To live a life of noble deeds, splendid accomplishments, purity and hope of eternal rest, one must follow God’s guidance.


Follow God’s guidance


Follow Him who knows the way to arrive safely.

Prayer for today

Help me, Lord, to obey you, as David did.
