If you need direction today, I have some wonderful promises to share from the scriptures. God assures us that He will never leave us or abandon us, so if you are standing at a fork in the road and aren’t sure which one to take, relax…God has your back!
Choose to believe what God says in His word over any fear, anxiety or confusion you are experiencing. He expects us to live a life of trust and connectivity, firmly relying on His faithfulness to His word, in His ability to lead us and to protect us as we navigate this earthly realm.
This is the essence of real faith: believing God, not simply believing that there is a God. You can take Him at His word, so here are some excellent ones related to wisdom and direction:
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.” Proverbs 3:5-6 New Living Translation
“Who is the man who fears (reverences) the Lord? He will instruct him in the way he should choose. His soul will abide in prosperity and his descendants will inherit the land.” Psalm 25:12-13 NASB
“The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for Thou art with me…” Psalm 23:1-4a New American Standard Bible
“Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding, for the gain from her is better than gain from silver and her profit better than gold. She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her; those who hold her fast are called blessed. The Lord by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding He established the heavens; by His knowledge the deeps broke open, and the clouds drop down the dew. My son, do not lose sight of these—keep sound wisdom and discretion, and they will be life for your soul and adornment for your neck. Then you will walk on your way securely, and your foot will not stumble. If you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.” Proverbs 3:13-24
“Let your heart hold fast my words; Keep my commandments and live; Acquire wisdom! Acquire understanding!” Proverbs 4:4b-5a NLT
“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” James 1:5 NIV
“The mind of man plans his ways but the Lord directs his steps.” Proverbs 16:9 NASB
And finally, one of my favorites from Isaiah:
“And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.” Isaiah 30:21 NASB
Blessings as you go out today!
