Directions. We need them regularly. To get to an unfamiliar place, we need to know the way. What roads do we take? What landmarks do we look for?
It’s true in life too. We need to know the way to life destinations. “What career do I pursue? What neighborhood should I live in? What friends should I make? What purpose does God have for my life?”
All these questions are legitimate. They point to our need to know how to get there from here! We need guidance!
God has actually made guidance simple. He’s not in heaven hiding His will from us. He wants to help us get from here to there, and He’s made it clear how to find the way.
Take a look at God’s guidance made simple. It’s found in Proverbs 3:5-7 (TPT) “Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make. Become intimate with him in whatever you do, and he will lead you wherever you go. Don’t think for a moment that you know it all, for wisdom comes when you adore him with undivided devotion and avoid everything that’s wrong.”
Simply put, rely on God to guide you. How?
R – Develop a personal RELATIONSHIP with God.
E – Get a good spiritual EDUCATION. Learn, believe and obey God’s promises, commands, and principles.
L – LET GO of your own will and life agenda. Always want God’s will, not your own.
Y – Trust that He loves and will lead YOU!
Never forget, God knows how to get you from here to there!
