Enjoy this study on the subject of Divine Guidance….Pastor Dennis



1. What is meant by “divine guidance?”The leading of God in the personal life and experience of man

2. Concerning the possibility of knowing the will of God, what may be seen from:(1) Col. 1:9? That we should know the will of God in all wisdom and spiritual understanding(2) Col. 4:12? That we should aim for all the will of God(3) Rom. 12:1-2? That we can know the will of God by meeting the necessary qualifications(4) Rom. 12:2? That the ability to discern the will of God necessitates the transformation (“transfiguration” as in Matt. 17:2) of our mind(5) Isa. 55:7-9? That the thought processes of the renewed mind are based upon a new point of reference

3. What does this transformation of our thinking involve according to:(1) Rom. 12:2? Negatively – a refusal to have our thinking fashioned, or patterned, after the thinking of those who know not God(2) Rom. 12:2? Positively – an enlightening of our mind with spiritual understanding by the Spirit, Eph. 1:17-18(3) Rom. 12:1? Practically – a surrender of the body to the demands of God in order to enable the Spirit to accomplish this renewing within us(4) Luke 16:15? Socially – that this renewal of our manner of thinking will bring us most assuredly into conflict with those whose thinking may be diametrically opposite to that of God
