DCLM Daily Manna 12 January 2020 Devotional By Pastor W.F Kumuyi – Allow God to Lead You
TOPIC: Allow God to Lead You
TEXT: Exodus 4:27-31
KEY VERSE: “And the Lord said to Aaron, Go into the wilderness to meet Moses. And he went, and met him in the mount of God, and kissed him” (Exodus 4:27).
MESSAGE: A quote from Amy Beatrice Carmichael, a Protestant Christian missionary in India, who wrote many books on the missionary work there, aptly captures the topic of our discussion today.
_”Strength of my heart, I need not fail, Not mind to fear but to obey, With such a Leader, who could quail? Thou art as Thou wert yesterday. Strength of my heart, I rest in Thee, Fulfil Thy purposes through me”._
Some people are at a loss as to how to know and do the will of God. In the ensuing confusion, they take the law into their own hands and usually make wrong assumptions. This in turn, leads to a more complicated situation, creating unnecessary problems where simple faith in God would have sufficed.
All through history, God has developed definitive ways of leading His children. Even when it appears that He has changed His original plan just because we crave some convenience and comfort, He would still stick to the first principles of getting His work done in His own way. There is never an argument when God is leading His people. He spoke to Aaron to go to the desert to welcome his brother, Moses, who narrated to him his experiences with God and the assignment he was to carry out. Together they gathered the Israelites, briefed them on God’s plans for their nation, showed them the initial signs God had given Moses “and the people believed”, and worshipped the Lord.

Never get to a point when you begin to think that you know your interests better. God alone knows what is good for you. Whether in the choice of career, a partner to marry, a place to live and do your business; indeed, in every area of life, ask God to guide and lead you into His perfect will. Therein lies the secret of peace and happiness, success and great accomplishments.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be moved.
