The Bishop of Diocese of Lagos West of the Church of Nigeria Anglican Communion, The Rt. Rev Olusola Odedeji has observed that being divinely guided does not mean challenges won’t come the way of the believer.
He made the observation on Sunday, December 2 at the new year thanksgiving service held at the Archbishop Vinning Memorial Church Cathedral in Lagos.
Bishop Odedeji said divine guidance doesn’t foreclose tribulations and difficulties or challenges in life.
He however added that victory is certain for the believer despite the challenges.
The Anglican bishop however called on Nigerians to look up to God for divine guidance in their journey through life.
Quoting from the Bible, he said God led the wise men to the worship of His Son. “If God had not led them, there was no way they could have located Jesus when he was born” he added
He then noted that divine guidance is a necessity if mankind must finish gloriously.
The Bishop explained that “divine guidance is all about God leading us. He is the only one that can lead successfully”.
Bishop Odedeji further enlightened that the believer can be divinely led through God’s words and through His spirit.
Other means of being led according to him include, “through His servants, through dreams, and through sermons, Christian movies, and literature.”
