Deut 32:20 And He said: ‘I will hide My face from them, I will see what their end will be, For they are a perverse generation, Children in whom is no faith.
Isa 40:11-12 Behold, the Lord God shall come with a strong hand, And His arm shall rule for Him; Behold, His reward is with Him, And His work before Him. 11 He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, And carry them in His bosom, And gently lead those who are with young.
God does not lead or cannot lead His child in whom there is no faith. Trusting His leading is different from finding His leading through faith. Trusting His leading comes after He reveled His leading; finding His leading through faith comes before revelation. In faith, we seek; in faith, we trust; in faith, we proclaim.
Isa 40:11 says, “…and gently lead those who are with the young”. Here we can see how our Lord is concerned about the condition for each of the sheep in His flock. He gathers them in His arm and feeds them. He gives special care to those who are with the young. He does not show personal favoritism from sheep to sheep, but He leads them differently according to the sheep’s condition and ability to receive the instruction and act upon it.
The basics are
- Seek His guidance
- Trust in the guidance
- Obey the leading
- Endure the way
- Proclaim His goodness and mercy
All these above are done in faith; once we clear this in one instance, He will show us more of His excellent ways according to His will. The just shall live by faith; the just shall see the righteous judgments of the Righteous Judge, and implement those righteous deeds among them to exalt the Lord God who is magnificent in wisdom and awesome in all His ways. The proclamation of His leading brings glory to the LORD. The confession of our mouth about His leading exalts His name. He is glorious and His name is exalted above all heavens and earth. His children exalt His wonderful leading through mountains or valleys. He is the Rock and our Refuge in Whom we trust. Halleluiah!
