” I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.”
◄ Psalm 32:8 (KJV)
Congratulations and welcome to the last few hours of August 2021.
One week ago, I handed over my duties in Akwa Ibom State to the new State Pastor of Living Faith Church, AKS and few hours ago, I resumed duties as the step-down transformer for Living Faith Church, Delta State. I give God all the glory and I am excited at what God is about to do in our midst this season.
All through the month of August 2021, we have been on a series titled: Understanding the Wonders of Divine Direction in Parts 1 and 2 of this series, we saw how God used difficulty and desire to lead Jacob into His will. As we conclude on the series, I will like us to take a look at how God will use delight and direction to lead His children.
From our biblical case study, we have seen how God used direction to move Jacob into His will. 25 years earlier, this Jacob would never have sought God’s will about whether he should move. But in Genesis 46, Jacob is seen stopping to seek God’s will. This means that every time we pause to ask God to show you His will, we have His promises to answer. Please note that God may reveal His will through Scripture, through prayer, through wise counsel, or through your desires; but the Bible promises that God will guide us if we truly want to follow Him.
Again, we see God used delight to confirm to Jacob that he was clearly in His will. In what can best be described as a great reunion scene (Genesis 46:29), the Bible says that “Joseph prepared his chariot and went up to Goshen to meet his father [Jacob]; as soon as he appeared before him, he fell on his neck and wept on his neck a long time.”
For 25 years Joseph believed he would never see his father again, and Jacob believed his son was dead. And now there they are, weeping and embracing. This means that even with us, once we have come to our new location, God will confirm that we are in the right place by placing joy in our hearts.
As I sign off on the series, my prayer for you is that you and I will not miss out of God’s guidance in Jesus name.
God BLESS You
State Pastor, LFC Delta State
