Throughout the Scriptures God talked to ordinary people and He wants to talk to you too! He told Abraham when to leave home (Genesis 12:1) and Jacob when to go back home ( Genesis 31:3). He told Elijah where to find food in the middle of a famine (1Kings 17:1-5).
“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way.” (Psalms 37:23 NKJV)
“He……send them in the right direction.” Psalm 25:8 MSG.
On two different occasions, He stopped Paul from walking through what appeared to be a door of opportunity because He had something better in mind for him.
The Bible says: “God is fair and just; He corrects the misdirected, sends them in the right direction. He gives the rejects His hand and leads them step-by-step. (Psalm 25:8,9 MSG)
Nothing is more important in life than being led by God (Rom. 8:14, Isaiah 48:17-18). Other people’s input should confirm and clarify what God’s already telling you. But until you’ve heard from Him, you’ll be tempted to think other people’s ideas are God’s leading and that can hurt you.
You’re unique and God has a unique plan and purpose for you. He is the only one who can guide into his plans for you.
