THEME: Heavenly Guidance
SCRIPTURE: Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God; Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness.
Life coaches often employ a tool called life mapping—drawing on paper from left to right a chronology of your life so far: high points, low points, major events, and so on. Recording the past is easy; recording the future is more challenging. We may not be certain of the future, but God is. And He can provide the direction we need.
The Bible is filled with verses and examples related to God providing directions for our life—directions based on God’s goodness and His love for us. Jesus even compared the goodness of earthly fathers to the goodness of God in providing what we need (Luke 11:11-13). God provides guidance and direction in a variety of ways. First is through Scripture, which is the basic roadmap for every Christian’s life. Then there are prayer, counsel from wise associates, discernment to evaluate circumstances, and the peace that comes when decisions are made in faith (Philippians 4:6-7). Because of who God is—good, loving, and faithful—we can rest knowing that His guidance will be best.
Do you need God’s direction today? Seek Him by faith and trust in the guidance He provides (2 Corinthians 5:7).
Men give advice; God gives guidance.
