Psalm 25:12 - Finding Clear Guidance.
Psalm 25:12: Finding Clear Guidance.
Psalm 25:12 (NIV) Who, then, are those who fear the LORD? He
will instruct them in the ways they should choose.
Psalm 25:12 (NLT) Who are those who fear the LORD? He will show
them the path they should choose.
How can you be sure youre making the right decision?
Sometimes it may seem as if God plays hide and seek when were trying to
know His will, but thats 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 Lords 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
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 were 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. Dont let the
urgency of your need keep you from enjoying the intimacy of His presence
as you seek His will. [In Touch Daily Devotional by Charles Stanley
