I Promise – The Promise of Direction

Pastor Isaiah Board

July 23, 2023

  • God offers us the promise of direction.

Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV)  //  Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

  • Trust in the Lord with all your heart
  • Trust God
  • Why don’t we trust Him?
  • Fear
  • Past Experiences
  • Never let the mistakes of people stain the majesty of God’s character
  • Who or what do we go to first?
  • Hard
  • Unknown
  • Hurting

Psalm 34:18  //  The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

  • Lonely
  • Lean not on your own understanding
  • Why shouldn’t I lean to my own understanding?
    • My perspective is off
    • We get things wrong
    • There’s a difference between my understanding and God’s understanding

<Isaiah 55:8-9  //  “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. 9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

  • Our understanding is a shaky thing to lean on
  • In all your ways acknowledge Him
  • When we acknowledge God in all our ways, we honor Him.

Psalm 37:23-24 (NLT)  //  “The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand.”

  • He shall direct your paths.
  • His Word
  • His Holy Spirit
  • Prayer
  • Godly People
  • Circumstances of Life
  • Action Steps
    • Do your part
    • Watch Him fulfill His promise of Direction
    • Follow His Leading
