God is My Guide: What Scriptures Have to Say

“Thy Word is a Lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”

Psalm 119:105 (KJV)

Whether you are walking around trying to find your way or hiking a long trail like the Appalachian Trial or even a local trail, or just your daily life, God is there to guide your way and to show you which direction you need to take. Whenever we allow God to be our Guide, we will always be successful in reaching our destination.

Let’s discuss what is meant by God’s guidance. According to the scriptures found in the Bible, divine guidance means to get advice or help from God. It is seeking supernatural help; we do that by looking and reading the Word of God to gain knowledge regarding what God would have us to do.

“Praise God! For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Jeremiah 29:11

Why is God’s guidance so important? It is an important need to allow God to direct our decisions in life. God lets us know through scriptures that it is not wise to trust our own judgements regarding our life decisions. Our ways are not HIs ways and when we take control and make our own decisions without consulting God, our lives become in disarray.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight.”

Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)

God created us not to be lone creatures, but to fellowship with him and to look to him for guidance. God is longing for us to seek Him. to let Him guide us through all the twists and turns in our lives. He wants to lead me and you to a life full of joy, peace, a greater purpose than we could ever imagine obtaining on our own.

“The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with His hand.”

How does God guide us? God guides us through the Bible and the Holy Spirit’s promptings, He helps us through other people and also guides us through our ability to think. How can we access God’s divine guidance? We are able to access HIs guidance through prayer and fasting. He shows us the way to go through the act of prayer and through His Holy Scriptures.
