10 Verses on Following God’s Guidance

Happy new year! Are you looking forward to great things? Achieving your goals? How about succeeding in all your plans? I believe we all want to thrive this year. 

Psalm 37:23 says, the steps of a man are established by the LORD when he delights in his way

Are you looking for God’s guidance? Seeking God’s guidance every day will help us stay within His plans and purposes for our lives because He knows what is best for us. 

Discerning God’s direction is not easy. However, our part is to pray, be still, and trust God. Our human knowledge and thinking may limit us, but God is at work despite our limitations. May we learn to seek the Lord’s guidance in all situations and we shall see His victory through the power of the Holy Spirit.
