Most professing Christians do not know what God is doing because they have no relationship with Him. God shares His secret counsel with His children, with those who are born again and who are led by the Holy Spirit, but most professing Christians do not have the Holy Spirit. They do not know the voice of God. They do not follow Jesus Christ and therefore they are in darkness. They trust in themselves and they trust in their own interpretation of the Bible. They listen to preachers and to other people but they do not listen to Jesus, because they do not know Him.
Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God and He shares His thoughts with them, the mind of Christ is in them they are not in darkness. They know what their Father is doing, but most professing Christians do not know what God is doing. They see things happening in the world around them, they trust in their own understanding and their own prejudice, they often call it discernment but it is not discernment, it is just their own carnal mind. They do not have the mind of Christ because they have no relationship with Jesus Christ.
If you follow Jesus and you listen to His voice, and you stay with Him, you will never be in darkness because He tells His sheep what He is doing. Do you know what God is doing or are you in darkness because you do not know Him, nor do you follow or obey Jesus Christ?
May Jesus bless you.
