Finding Clear Guidance - Psalm 25

How can you be sure you're making the right decision? Sometimes it may seem as if God plays hide and seek when we're trying to know His will, but that’s not the way He operates. He wants to give us clear direction. The real question is, What do you need to do to hear His voice?


Clear the pathway. We have two main obstacles that hinder our discernment: sin in our life and our own strong desires about the situation. To receive the Lord's guidance, we must repent of all known sin and make our desires secondary to His.


Exercise patience. Sometimes it takes a great deal of strength to stand still when everything within you is shouting, "Hurry! Time is running out!" But if you rush ahead of God, you may miss His will.


Persist in prayer. The Bible clearly instructs us to keep coming to the Lord with our concerns. As we continue to pray, He will gradually weed out anything confusing until we come to His conclusion about the matter.


Search the Scriptures. The Word of God has an answer for every need, and the Holy Spirit knows just how to point us in the right direction. I remember times while I was reading the Bible that a verse jumped off the page and supplied the exact answer I needed to make an important decision.


So often when we're faced with a critical choice, all we want from the Lord is a quick answer. But He delights to meet with us in order to deepen our relationship with Him. Don't let the urgency of your need keep you from enjoying the intimacy of His presence as you seek His will.



Current Sermon Series
      How should today's church conduct itself in order to comply with Christ's mandate? How can your role as a leader or a worker make a difference in your church? As we study various passages from God's Word, we will see the clear direction given by Christ, who nurtures and provides for His body, the church.


Last Week:
      Are we a part of a healthy or effective church? We will look at several different marks over the next few weeks. Today, we saw the first mark is that of Godly leader, so detrimental. We also saw that we need functional goals and objectives.
      Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our
sermons page, or by visiting us on iTunes.


Next Week:
      We will continue our series on the Marks of a Healthy Church.
