When you are faced with major decisions regarding your homeschooling, your family, your own personal role and relationships, seeking God’s direction can seem very challenging. Even your daily decisions can get bogged down with the opinions and advice of others, self doubt, and conflicting messages from our culture.
We spend hours in prayer, seek the wisdom of friends, and often look for “signs” along the road. However, I have learned over the years that seeking God’s direction doesn’t have to be as complex as we think it is. No matter what situation you face, the Bible is a clear starting point for seeking God’s direction. In my personal journey, I have found that five Biblical directives brings God’s will for most situations into clearer focus.
In Part One of this two-part series at Managing Your Blessings, I discovered that my desire for “confirmation” was really just about me wanting to feel secure that it was OK to make the choices that felt right to me, forgetting that what “feels right” to an imperfect believer isn’t likely to be right in God’s eyes. Since then, I’ve been working intentionally on renewing my mind with God’s Word (Romans 12:2).
In Part Two, I explain why the Bible is a clear starting point for seeking God’s direction. In my personal journey, I have found that starting with five Biblical directives brings God’s will for most situations into clearer focus. Starting with five key passages, I share how I have applied them in my life when seeking God’s direction.
