TOPIC: Divine Leading (Part 2) 

OPENING PRAYER: Father, help me to understand the need for divine leading. 

MEMORY VERSE: “And it came to pass after this, that David enquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I go up into any of the cities of Judah? And the Lord said unto him, Go up. And David said, Whither shall I go up? And he said, Unto Hebron.” – 2 Samuel 2:1 (KJV)

BIBLE PASSAGE: Habakkuk 2:1-2 (KJV)

1 I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.

2 And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

INTRODUCTION: The Bible is full of records of believers who yielded to the leading of God. While it may seem difficult for some people in our contemporary world to allow God in their pursuits, Christians that meet the requirements will walk in the path of God.

LESSON AIM: To gain more insight into divine leading.

TEACHING OBJECTIVES: At the end of the study, students should be able to:
a. Mention biblical instances of divine leading. b. State the requirements for divine leading.

A. He stood upon his watch to ………………………………………………………v1.
B. The Lord told him to:
i. …………………………………………………v2b.

LESSON OUTLINES:

  1. BIBLICAL INSTANCES OF DIVINE LEADING
  2. REQUIREMENTS FOR DIVINE LEADING

1. BIBLICAL INSTANCES OF DIVINE LEADING

The following are some instances of those led by God in the Bible:

i. In Genesis 12:1-4: God ordered Abram out of his country to a Promised Land and he obeyed.
ii. Numbers 9:17-23: The Israelites obeyed the instruction of God to travel with the cloud.
iii. Genesis 31:3: God instructed Jacob to return to his fatherland
iv. 1 Kings 18:1: God told Elijah to show himself to Ahab as He would open the heavens for the rain to fall.
v. 2 Samuel 5:19: David inquired from God whether to go against the Philistines or not.
vi. Matthew 2:9-12: God guided the wise men to the place of Jesus’ birth.
vii. Acts 9:10-1: The Lord gave and guided Ananias to the specific address of Saul of Tarsus. Surprisingly, the Holy Spirit can forbid you to perform a task, though, it may seem like it would please God (Acts 16:6).

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: Like the above examples, students should mention specific instructions they got from God and whether or not they obeyed.

2 REQUIREMENTS FOR DIVINE LEADING

Some of the requirements for divine leading are listed below:

  1. Delight in the Lord (Psalm 37:4-5; 1 Corinthians 2:9).
  2. Passion for God’s will (Luke 22:42). The will of God does not leave you miserable but rather it takes you to the expected end (Jeremiah 29:11).
  3. The willingness to be led (Romans 8:14; Psalm 23:1-2).
  4. The attitude of meekness (Psalm 25:9): meekness equals being teachable.
  5. The attitude of enquiry (Jeremiah 6:16; Matthew 7:7).
  6. The attitude of hearing and listening – activate the listening mode (Psalm 85:8; Habakkuk 2:1-2).
  7. The attitude of patience (Isaiah 28:16). Do not force yourself to hear what God is not saying.
  8. Soak in and meditate on the word of God (Psalm 119:105).
  9. Pay attention to godly leaders over you (1 Samuel 3:9).
  10. Obey previous instructions (Mark 4:24b). If you have not harkened to previous instructions, you may not hear the next move of God.

CLASS ACTIVITY 2: Mention an encounter you have had in your walk with God that shows you clearly that you are in a relationship with Him.

CONCLUSION: If God is the one leading you, you can never miss the mark. Ask for the grace to understand the mind of God and be guided in the right direction. If you think you have gone far in the wrong direction and refuse to turn back, you will only end at the wrong destination.

EVALUATION: Are there requirements to fulfil if you want to be led by God always?

CLOSING PRAYER: Father, I receive the grace to meet all the requirements for divine leading.

ASSIGNMENT: Recall and write down an occasion that you refused to follow the leading of God and the consequence of such disobedience. Make a pledge to be led by God always (No marks).
