Seeking God's Guidance

Psalms 16:1,11

Christians should make decisions based on this premise: God has a plan for our lives, and He is involved and interested in every decision we make. Therefore, when we make decisions, we come to our heavenly Father for guidance, knowing He always has our best interest at heart.

But sometimes we reason, This is what I want to do. If it's not God's will, then He'll stop me. God will not necessarily prevent us from doing what is not His will. He won't always come to our rescue, especially if we haven't sought His help.

We make decisions every day of our lives, and to make wise ones, we have to learn the will of the Father. God has promised, "I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you" (Psalm 32:8).

God provides guidance by giving every believer a Pilot - the Holy Spirit - on board his or her life. In John 14-16, Jesus comforted His disciples as He prepared them for the time when He would not be with them physically. He promised that His Spirit would be their helper, teacher, and guide. In a similar way, the Spirit of God will guide us through the treacherous seas of decision-making.

Godly people want to do the will of their heavenly Father. If you are a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, you have the Holy Spirit living in you to guide and help with your decisions. Are you paying attention to His instructions?

Psalms 16:1,11 - Preserve me, O God, for in You I put my trust. You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

If you have any questions about the Bible, this devotionalm, would like to talk about how to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ or any other need, please feel free to contact me at any time.
