When we yield to the leading of the Holy Spirit in our daily living, it becomes easy for us to fulfil God’s purpose for our lives. Hence, divine direction paves the way for a proper understanding of God’s purpose.
The essence of divine direction is to know and to fulfil God’s desires. It gives us the assurance that we are walking in the centre of God’s will (1 Cor. 1:1; 2 Cor. 1:1).
Romans 12:1-2 says Only those who have been born into the household of God, are referred to as the people of God and His inheritance. The benefits of the kingdom of God are the exclusive rights of His people.
Unto such, it is given to understand the mysteries of the kingdom of God.

Some of the benefits enjoyed by God’s people:

1. God finds/locates His people
We were once lost and left wandering about, in the wilderness of the world, but the Lord found us. God is still in the business of finding His lost sheep (Luke 15).
How does God find His people?
God finds His sheep (people) through His Spirit and His Word. Luke 19:10
The Word of God searches our hearts, tries our thoughts and discerns the intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12; Psalm 139:23; Deuteronomy 8:2).
The Spirit of God searches all things (including our hearts) – 1 Corinthians 2:10; Romans 8:27.
Henceforth, the Word and the Spirit of God will locate you and place you on the path of righteousness.

2. God leads His people
God deliberately led His people through the way of the Red Sea (Exodus 14:17-18).
God deliberately determines the steps of His people, in order to establish His own purpose in their lives.
Let Him take the lead, because He alone knows the way!
The leading we receive from the Holy Spirit is the ‘token’ of our ‘sonship’ in the kingdom of God (Romans 8:14).
3. God instructs His people
The instruction of the Lord involves teaching, commandment, exhortation, chastisement and correction in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16).
Psalm 94:12; Deuteronomy 2:6; 9
Receiving instructions from God is an exclusive privilege, enjoyed by the beloved of the Lord. May the Lord count us worthy to receive His instructions…

4. God keeps them as the apple of His eye
Psalm 91:1-4; Psalm 23:4
He suffered no man to do them harm…. (Psalm 105:14-15)
The Lord will keep you as the apple of His eye, and hide you under the shadow of His wings – Psalm 17:8
Sometimes, it will look as if the Lord has forsaken you, if you remain committed to His Word, you are safe.

5. God exalts (lifts) His people
Isaiah 58:14; Psalm 75:6-7
God enables His children to soar higher than the challenges of life.

6. God prospers His people
Your hands will be sufficient for you (Deuteronomy 33:7).
The earth will yield forth her increase on your behalf (Psalm 67:6)
Whatsoever you do shall prosper.
The Lord will make a way for you, out of seemingly impossible situations.
