Apostle Grace Lubega
Exodus 2:14-15 (KJV); And he said, Who made thee a prince and a judge over us? intendest thou to kill me, as thou killedst the Egyptian? And Moses feared, and said, Surely this thing is known. Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian: and he sat down by a well.
There are things that shut the voice of God from our lives. One of those things is acting in your own wisdom while attempting to fulfill divine purpose.
This happened to Moses. When he killed a man because he considered himself the deliverer of the Israelites, it took forty years before God could speak to him again concerning his calling.
The same thing happened to Abraham. When he slept with Hagar to have the son that God had promised him, it took thirteen years before God spoke to him again about his promise to give him descendants.
The voice of God is the greatest guide along the paths of divine purpose. In Isaiah 30:21 (NIV), the Bible says, “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”
His voice clarifies what the milestones of your destiny are; His voice keeps you from the paths of death.
No matter how delayed you feel you are or how zealous you are for the things of God, never silence the voice of God by attempting to fulfill His purpose through your own acts and will.

GOLDEN NUGGET: The voice of God is the greatest guide along the paths of divine purpose. No matter how delayed you feel you are or how zealous you are for the things of God, never silence the voice of God by attempting to fulfill His purpose through your own acts and will.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this Word. My spirit is open to Your voice. I am conscious of the plans that You have for me. I depend on Your power, strength and wisdom to run the race before me. I know that it can never be by power nor might but by Your Spirit. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
