From Guesswork to Guidance

From Guesswork to Guidance

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go.”             Ps 32:8 NIV

You can know God’s will for your life. He promises, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go.” His Word says, “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths” (Pr 3:6 NKJV). God wants you to move from guesswork to guidance, but getting there requires four things: (1) Knowing that God’s will begins with surrendering your will. Jesus said, “I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me” (Jn 5:30 NAS). You only recognize God’s will as you learn to lay aside your own will, and that gets easier with practice. (2) Keeping a spiritual mindset. It’s not possible to sense God’s will while you’re controlled by self-interest. “The [carnal] mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so” (Ro 8:7 NIV). (3) Praying for God’s guidance. David prayed, “Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me” (Ps 143:10 NIV). James also encourages us: “If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking” (Jas 1:5 NLT). (4) Reading God’s Word with a heart that’s open to hear from Him. “By your words I can see where I’m going; they throw a beam of light on my dark path” (Ps 119:105 TM). Daily exposure to the Word of God will help you recognize His voice when He speaks to you. “The sheep follow him: for they know his voice” (Jn 10:4).
