God Leads Us

God will lead us on the right path. He knows all about our future. He knows the problems we will face. He knows all things, so He knows how to lead us in every situation. Let God lead in your life. That's God's will for every believer.

Like a shepherd, God leads his people. The sheep have no sense of direction. They easily go astray. Therefore, they must be led day by day. You need to be led day by day. God knows just how to lead you. More than that, God wants to lead you. He desires to lead all of his children. "For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God" (Romans 8:14, NLT).

God leads us through the Holy Spirit. He leads us from within. We will not always understand where He is leading us. Sheep never do. Trust Him to lead you, and be satisfied to let Him lead day by day.

Peace within is our sure confirmation that God is leading us. He is the God of all peace. Remember, that peace is a fruit of the Holy Spirit working within us. "But when the Holy Spirit controls our lives, he will produce this kind of fruit in us: love, joy, peace" (Galatians 5:22, NLT). That's how we know that He is leading us.
