Lead – God’s willingness to be the point person. He says, I AM. He is at the ready, casting the vision, setting the course for all eternity.
Guide – God’s willingness to include us in His plan. He lets us in on the vision. He seeks a relationship with us individually, and guides us to Him as much as we are willing to follow
Direct – God’s willingness to help us find our way. He opens and closes doors, gives us help through the Holy Spirit, reveals His way in His word.
Lead, guide, and direct is a like a brief synopsis of God’s love for us. And that’s no joke.
