How do I receive God’s guidance?

Only God speaks with complete reliability from the various dimensions of His self-revelation in His word. It’s just up to us to choose to seek Him and listen.

Verse

I set my heart on Your precepts and pay close attention to all Your ways. My delight is found in all Your laws, and I won’t forget to walk in Your words. Psalms 119:15-16 TPT

Summary

What guides us through life? Our upbringing, the peer pressure of friends, family and colleagues and the traditions and expectations of the community we live in all seek to influence, but only God speaks with complete reliability from the various dimensions of His self-revelation in His word. It’s just up to us to choose to seek Him and listen.

Good news

God is constantly revealing Himself, especially through different dimensions of His word. That’s how He speaks to us, personally, as His children, as we listen.

Prayer

Lord God, You have shown me Your way over and above all other ways.

The way that is true has been shown by Jesus, and His Spirit is active in helping me to see it……

If I listen, and if I remember, and If I avoid all the the other distractions and influences.

Lord, I come to You for help.
Give me eyes to see with insight, and spiritual ears to hear Your voice.
Help me not to quickly forget what You have shown me, but rather, to walk in it.

May this point others to Your Son Jesus, in whose name I pray. Amen.
