Follow God‘s Lead
by Bishop Keith A. Butler

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Proverbs 3:6

You may say, “What’s the problem with making a few decisions on my own
here and there?” The problem is that God’s Word says, “There is a way

death” (Proverbs 14:12). The big difference between directing things
yourself and allowing God to direct you really shows up when things go

If you are on God’s path and trouble comes your way, you can go to
God’s Word and declare, “I am standing on Your Word and obeying Your
will, Lord. I am doing what You said, and I am expecting by faith that You will do what Your Word says.” You can stand on the Word, and having
done all, keep standing (see Ephesians 6:13, 14). You will get
deliverance in times of trouble when He directs your path.

Things aren’t so positive when you direct yourself into something and
trouble catches up with you. You have nothing to stand on except your
own words, and you will go down with the ship. Don’t tell yourself,
“Well, that was Adam and Eve falling for satan’s trick! I would never
do that.” Are you that much smarter than the first man and woman God
created? I doubt that!
