Yes you can. Isaiah 30 vs 21 gives us that confidence. It states: “And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left”. The key words for us here is “ thine ears shall hear a word”…. This is the way, walk in it”. When God gives a divine direction, he usually tells you exactly what to do. It is left to you to comply.
