Lighting the Future

Sermon Overview
Scripture Passage: Proverbs 3:5-6

Man is a clever creature, but he has lost his way in the darkness. We live in a day of guided missiles and misguided men, which is a shame because God has cultivated wonderful plans for each of our lives.

Proverbs 3:5-6 explains, “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.”

In order to shed some light on the future, we must first let God choose the way. Every step we take is to be in His plan and for His purpose.

It is difficult to trust in someone we don’t know; we must know and love the Lord in order to trust and obey Him. We must receive God’s wisdom rather than lean on our own understanding. When we search for God’s wisdom and get serious about knowing His will, He promises that we will find it. When we have complete confidence in God, we will faithfully comply with His plans. Only then will we receive His faithful direction.

Second, we must let God confirm the way. God has promised to direct our paths, and He will do it through the Word of God.

Psalm 119:105 confirms, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” The Word of God reveals God’s will concerning our salvation, the Holy Spirit, and sanctification. God often directs us through prayer; He speaks to our hearts directly as we pray to Him. He also guides through wisdom and directs us by His providence; He is the one who closes and opens doors.

Finally, we must let God clear the way. After we receive faithful direction from God, the Lord clears the path for us.

Adrian Rogers says, “God will go before you like a bulldozer, He will clear the way. God will open and no man will shut, and God will shut and no man will open. And God Himself will take away the obstacles that keep you from His will for your life.”

Apply it to your life
Are you serious about knowing God’s will for your life? Express your full dependence on Him and receive His faithful direction. Begin by knowing and trusting Him; then obey Him.
