SCRIPTURE: The Lord says, “I will teach you the way you should go; I will instruct you and advise you. Don’t be stupid like a horse or a mule, which must be controlled with a bit and bridle to make it submit.” Psalm 32:8-9 (GNT)
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: What you do not pursue, you cannot possess.
Divine direction is non-negotiable in life if destiny must be fulfilled. Yesterday, we saw the impact of lack of direction on destiny. We saw that there can be no destiny without direction; where there is no direction, there must be disaster; where there is no direction there is minimal progress; where there is no direction, there can be no dominion, and where there is no direction, there is absolute frustration.
Having seen that no one on earth can fulfil destiny without direction, the question is, what are the keys to accessing Divine direction?
i) Value Divine Direction
What you do not value, you do not experience. Know that direction is crucial to your life. Know that you can be free from disaster and your destiny can open up by just one thing God will tell you (Proverbs 3:5-6).
ii) Pursue Divine Direction
Take days of fasting and praying at intervals; stay up in the night and ask God to speak to you in the language you can understand on issues of concern to you. What you do not pursue, you cannot possess. Pursue Divine direction until God gives it to you.
iii) Comply with Divine Direction (Acts 13:2; Isaiah 30:29-30).
Anybody who has not done what God told him to do is not a candidate for more direction from God. Comply with what God has told you. Obey what God has said and comply with it (Mark 4:24).
Beloved, my counsel is, value Divine direction and comply with what God has told you in order to receive more directions from God.
Remember this: What you do not pursue, you cannot possess.
1. Place value on Divine Direction.
2. Pursue Divine Direction.
3. Comply with Divine Direction.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask for grace to value Your direction above every other thing and pursue it. I comply with the previous directions You have given me, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
