KEY SCRIPTURE: Joh 10:4 KJV” And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.”
Our key scripture shows us how we walk with the master. He leads as we follow. He does not stay behind pushing us to move on as the Fulani herdsmen do. Our Lord leads us with His word. Psalms 23:3 KJV” He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.” No child of God ought to be in the dark concerning the ways of God. He never leads us into error, failure or destruction. It may seem we are entering into danger or trouble, yet so long as it is He leading, then it would be alright in the long run He led the whole congregation of Israel population to the red sea. This appeared like a mistake, yet it was their deliverance.
Someone said God would lead you around but will lead you aright. Our part is to locate where He is going or walking and follow suit. The scripture said, He goes before us. This means no matter how fearful a condition or situation may appear; our Lord Jesus is the one actually confronting the thing. Psalms 114:3 KJV “The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was driven back.” The red sea was divided because it saw the Lord who was leading them. So long as His word tells us to follow or go forward, there should be no turning back. We are rather defeated when we turn back. The scripture says the Lord never leaves us, even when there seem to be no victory in sight. Isaiah 43:2 KJV” When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”
Dear child of God, may you resolve to keep moving forward in line with the Lord’s promise. If He gave His word, then the word cannot fail because He is with you. Isaiah 43:2 says in the water He is with us, the rivers would not overwhelm us, neither would He leave us when passing through the fire. The fire would never consume you. Dear one, just keep going forward. In moments of trial, let the following be your words ” the Lord is with me, for He is leading me with His word. So long as I have His word He is with me, and victory is already mine in Jesus name. Glory be to God.”
My Lord Jesus leads me in His path of righteousness. I am not moved by what I see. I only believe and so that seemingly impossible situation is turned into a miracle for me.
Heb 13:5 KJV “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”
Psalms 23:2 KJV” He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.”
