What does it mean to be led by God?

As I was talking with my wife tonight we were talking about why I had taken on a specific responsibility. She asked two things:

1.) Was it something that I was doing to look good?
2.) Did I feel led to do it by the Lord?

The second question caught my attention and as I talked with my wife a few different pictures came forward in my mind.

1.) Is being led by God comparable to an owner walking his dog on a leash, determining the direction the dog will go? Thus, conveying an idea that being led by God is straightforward and clear to the one being led. If this is the case then I would say that I am not led that often, but it is a powerful experience when I am.

2.) Is being led by God comparable to an owner walking with his dog, without a leash, allowing the dog to go in the direction he chooses, while being influenced by all that his owner has taught him? Thus, being led by God is a matter of our own choosing as it relates to our understanding of the Master desires. If this is the case, I would say that I am led more often, but am often less confident about my leading.

Time to see what the bible has to say about this. If you have any bible verses that might help here, let me know.
