“What is the most important thing needed for the future?” a disciple once asked her discipler. After several hours of meditation on the matter, the master responded, “the most important thing you need for your future is guidance.” The future demands something crucial: guidance. Not just any guidance, but divine guidance. It holds the key to unlocking your potential and overcoming any barriers. Without vision, even the most creative minds can struggle to produce meaningful work. But how do you acquire such guidance? It’s not as simple as praying for divine guidance. You need a “God-given Guide,” someone who can train, mould, and ground you in the ways of God.
Guidance is indispensable. You may struggle to maximize your potential if you do not have a godly counselor to provide spiritual direction in your affairs. The scriptures emphasize the importance of having such a godly person to help you. In Galatians 4:1-2, we learn that even heirs need guardians and trustees until the appointed time set by the father. Similarly, King Uzziah sought God and prospered as long as he had Zechariah, a guide who understood the visions of God. You should note that after Zechariah’s passing, Uzziah’s pride led to his downfall. This guide, a human being, acts as a beacon, leading you closer to your destiny.
Jesus himself emphasized the significance of belief and following the one whom God has sent. John 6:28-29 says, “Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that you believe on him whom he has sent.” By aligning yourself with a God-given Guide, you gain access to divine direction and ensure that you stay on the right path towards your destiny. Trust in that person, and you will find yourself fulfilling your purpose without losing your way.
