God’s Guidance Helps Us Survive – The Holy Spirit!
Kind David authorized a military census that God did not approve, and he was punished for his action. Since David’s sinful action was evident in Israel. His unapproved census was expunged from history, and the record was never referenced in the land. The scripture confirmed,
“Joab the son of Zeruiah began to number, but he finished not, because there fell wrath for it against Israel; neither was the number put in the account of the chronicles of king David” (1 Chronicles 27:24 KJV).
The Holy Spirit Is Our Guide
As children of God, we must endeavor to operate within our approved jurisdictions, and never attempt to usurp God’s sovereign power. Also, we must allow the Holy Spirit to guide our operations, rather than yielding to emotion and carnal suggestions. With all certainty, God will help us if we consult him on any matter. However, our failure to seek God’s face in any situation will lead to disaster! Instead of yielding to pride and selfish cravings, we must go to God in prayer. Every child of God must consider it a priority to walk with God and yield to his instructions.
God’s directions help us navigate through life and make the right decisions. Without his guidance, we would be lost and we would make unnecessary mistakes.Click to tweet
