To answer the above stated question, Yes! God will guide you in your purpose when you align with His will, word and way. Living independently of God’s guidance is a sure way to get off God’s targeted plan for your life. Adhering to God’s guidance is paramount as we strive to remain on God’s pathways of promise.
God guides us all, but we don’t need to get caught up thinking that God has one standard approach to his divine guidance. God can lead a believer one way using one method of guidance and then lead another believer a totally different way because of his sovereignty.
God specializes in individualized instruction; he knows what to do in order to get each of his children on target. No matter what guiding method God decides to use in your life, be ready, willing and receptive to get on board with his plan.
In scripture we read about four accounts when God guided Joseph, Mary’s husband, to follow through with God’s plan with the angel of the LORD appearing to him in a dream. Although some things probably didn’t make sense and human reasoning resulted, God’s plan prevailed because he sent divine guidance to Joseph during his trial experiences.
When Joseph planned to divorce Mary quietly after learning of her pregnancy, an angel of the LORD appeared to him in a dream and guided Joseph in truth.
An angel of the LORD appeared to Joseph in a dream a second time telling Joseph to Get up and take Jesus and Mary and flee to Egypt until instructed to leave. God guided Joseph in revelation regarding Herod’s plan.
An angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream a third time telling him to Get up and take Jesus and his mother to Israel for those who sought the child’s life are dead. God guided Joseph in direction.
God additionally warned Joseph in a dream when he was afraid and Joseph settled in Nazareth. God guided Joseph in confirmation. God has the power to guide in dreams!
Let Joseph’s story encourage you today.
Regardless of any circumstances and uncertainty you face, remember God is our guide and will guide us all in truth, direction, revelation and confirmation. God loves, protects, blesses and guides every one of his children. Trust God, the Divine Guide.
For a more in-depth look of God's guiding power as it relates to this story take a moment of your day to Read Matthew 1:18-25 and Matthew 2:13-23.
An encouraging scripture I want to share with you is Isaiah 30:21 "Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it."
Peace & God Bless,
