TOPIC: DIVINE LEADING (PART 2)

 

*SUNDAY SCHOOL HYMN*

1. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,

O how I love Thee well,

I am happy, it makes me glad

To rejoice at Thy birth.

 

2. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,

Thy friend friendship suits me well,

Both young and will sing Thy song,

We long for Sunday School.

 

3. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,

Christ was Thy first teacher,

The Holy Spirit, great teacher,

Does manifest in thee.

 

4. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,

This testimony is sure,

That God, the Father Almighty,

Poured His blessing on Thee

5. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,

Though the sun be so bright,

Or if the clouds be black with rain,

I’ll be in Sunday School.

 

6. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day

I rejoice to see Thee,

Will thou pass over me today?

Without my being blest?

 

BIBLE PASSAGE: Habakkuk 2:1-2

 

[1]I will stand my watch And set myself on the rampart, And watch to see what He will say to me, And what I will answer when I am corrected. The Just Live by Faith

 

[2]Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it.

 

MEMORY VERSE: “It happened after this that David inquired of the LORD, saying, “Shall I go up to any of the cities of Judah?” And the LORD said to him, “Go up.” David said, “Where shall I go up?” And He said, “To Hebron.” 2 Samuel 2:1 (NKJV).

 

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.

 

OUTLINES:

1. BIBLICAL INSTANCES OF DIVINE LEADING

2. REQUIREMENTS FOR DIVINE LEADING

 

1. BIBLICAL INSTANCES OF DIVINE LEADING

In Genesis 12:1-4, God ordered Abram out of his country to a Promised Land and he obeyed. Numbers 9:17-23 narrates how the Israelites obeyed the instruction of God to travel with the cloud. God instructed Jacob to return to his fatherland (Genesis 31:3) just as He told Elijah in 1 Kings 18:1 to show himself to Ahab as He would open the heavens for the rain to fall. According to 2 Samuel 5:19, David inquired from God whether to go against the Philistines or not. Matthew 2:9-12 tells us that God guided the wise men to the place of Jesus’ birth. In Acts 9:10-11, 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

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.

 

QUESTIONS:

* Give four biblical examples of people who followed the divine leading of God.

* What are the requirements for God’s leading?

 

FURTHER READING:

SUN: Ps.25:14. MON: Matt.7:2. TUES: Acts 13:2. WED: Prov.6:23. THURS: Jn.6:38. FRI: Gal.5:18. SAT: Rom.9:33. SAT: Jn.1:14.

 

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).
