I am thinking of an old hymn, He Leadeth Me. God is so good in the leading of us, his children. We see this theme in Scripture, throughout.
We need to be still, seeking to be so before the Lord. We need to listen to his voice in our reading of Scripture, and try to discern what he may be saying to us as we prayerfully endeavor to hear his voice in our lives. This takes patience in faith- through grace, a persistence that won't quit until the clear, calming peace of God helps us rest assured in his way, and that we are on the right paths for his name's sake.
I must say for myself however, that if I wait on a feeling than I'd seldom move. I have to in faith press on in spite of my fears quite often, to find that perfect love that casts out fear.
God's love for us is so deep and so infinite. Why we can't trust him to lead us is a deficiency in us. We need to be those sheep that can come to have a growing and deeper trust in the goodness of our Good Shepherd. Knowing he is present for each and every one of us.
What thoughts would you like to add to this?
