Matthew 2:12 Then, being divinely warned in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed for their own country another way.
Here, the wise men from the east, are told by the Lord thru a dream, not to return word to Herod. It is impairative we are sensitive to the Holy Spirits leadings. Call it a gut feeling, intuitions, but I call it Spiritual giftings God gives us to navigate these muddy waters that are difficult to see. Why rely on going thru life blind when you have access to the God who knows everything? Seek Him, as these wise men did.
