He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way. Psalm 25:9
Finding guidance in just about anything is easy to find. A person can go through a bookstore and see how many self-help books there are to guide him on how to do nearly anything. Searching on U-Tube will even find more guidance on how to do many things, from how to draw a simple picture, to how to rebuild an engine on a vehicle and more.
Getting guidance on the ways of God is not so easy to find. People will search out other people to find out how God does things or how to live for God better. Christian bookstores are filled with books on how to live a Christian life and how to live for God.
All of these ways of getting guidance on the ways of God is fair, but the best source is from God Himself.
There is a method though to getting God’s guidance in His ways–a person must be humble. People like to think of themselves and being in control of their lives and always knowing what is best. It is not just the teenagers who think they know what is the best way to do something, many adults do so also.
Being humble means that you realize you cannot do it and need help. You know that you are not capable of living life correctly for God in yourself. You cannot find the self-help on your own. You need God.
Letting go of your own life and allowing God to guide you will allow God to teach you His ways. If you think and act like you know everything, God will let you go your own way. If you humble yourself and let God have control, He will guide you and teach you His ways.
God can open up your spiritual eyes as you read the Bible to see and understand how you are to live for God, but you must be willing to be taught. Do not be a know-it-all. Only God knows everything.
Allow God to teach you His ways and see what He can do in and through you.
I pray today that God will give you a hunger for His word; that you will allow God to be in control of your life; that you will humble yourself before God; and that you will hear God’s instructions on how to live for Him.
