I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;

I will counsel you with my eye upon you. Psalm 32:8

Do you feel true peace in your heart?

God your Heavenly Father is your guide.

Jesus is your loving and tender Shepherd.

God’s Holy Spirit is your Helper when you are weary.

God’s right hand is holding your hand all the way.

God Almighty invites you to walk with Him. As you step through life. He calls on you to follow Him. To follow His ways of love and compassion.

In His Word, God Gives you instruction to help you on your way. “I will counsel you with my eye upon you.” (Psalm 32:8b) You are a child of God. You love God and are loved by Him. Each morning you face new challenges. New opportunities. God is there each new day as your loving companion. He gives you wisdom through His Word. In Proverbs God urges you to take His wisdom with you. “When you walk, they will guide you;” (Proverbs 6:22) This is speaking of God’s wisdom.

Letting God’s wisdom lead you, is yet another way of God speaking to you. God says that His wisdom. His word will talk to you when you awake each morning. Turn to Him each morning in prayer. Seek each day His wisdom through the Scriptures. God’s Word will instruct you and help you when decisions need to be made.

He loves with unceasing love.

Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105

Do you know how much God the Father loves you? This is how much He loves you. There is not an area of your life that is overlooked. Not a detail that is missed. Not a sadness that is not shared. Not a joy that is not blessed. Every moment of your life is precious to God. You are His beloved child.

God is always there to help you. To light your path. No matter how small, how trivial the problem is. No matter how large the dilemma. God is there. God is waiting. Waiting for you to turn to Him in prayer.

God’s Holy Spirit is a gift of grace from God. His Spirit is known through the Scriptures as the Helper. Let His Spirit help you in times of trials and sadness. God’s Spirit works within you. Helping and comforting you. Restoring you once more to a state of peace. He is there within you whenever needed.

Each day, each morning as you wake up is an ideal time to hand your new day over to God.

Turn to Him in prayer. Seek His guidance. Then throughout each day believe that: “the steps of a man are established by the Lord when he delights in His ways.” (Psalm 37:23) Remember God is available for you at any time. If you are uncertain about a decision to be made. Turn to His Word for guidance. Ask His way in prayer. Listen, seek and watch. He will answer. He always does.

How to know when God is showing you the right way?

Nevertheless, I am continually with you; you hold my right hand. Psalm 73:23

You have searched and meditated on God’s Word. You have turned to God your Heavenly Father in prayer. In your quiet time with Him, you honestly opened your heart. You trusted Him with your cares. You believed He could and will guide you. You waited for His guidance. You listened patiently. Faithfully. Your heart is listening now for His soft and loving voice.

You live your life according to His instructions as set in the Scriptures. You obey His prescribed will for your life. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9) You ask His forgiveness in times of failure. You are ever so grateful to Jesus for your salvation.

You with the help of God’s Holy Spirit remain true to His ways. As taught to you through His Word.

Now you believe you are on the path that God has chosen for you. Your heart feels calm. You are at peace once more. Your life once again is in tune with what God wishes for you. As a child of God, as a follower of Christ you: “seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.” (Colossians 3:1)

This inner peace is your strength throughout the day. It reminds you to use the nudges that God’s Holy Spirit gives when wrong decisions are made. Wrong paths are taken. When peace is not found, you seek relief in God’s Word. You seek comfort and help once again from His Spirit.

For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:11

You return control of your life to God the Father. Times of confusion and stress when handed over to your loving Father will be replaced. Will be replaced with peace and calm in your heart. With love once more from the One who loves you so. Your faith in Him has restored your peace.

Part of living in obedience to God is not doubting His love. Not doubting that He always wants the very best for you. “take every thought captive to make it obedient to Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:5) This is not easy. Your mind has a tendency to wander. To worry, to make its own decisions.

This is where memorising God’s Word is so very useful. When you are confused. Unable to sleep because your mind is in a spin. Speak beautiful and precious Words from Scripture. Let His active and living Word fill your heart. Soon God’s peace returns. God’s love shines once more.

God’s Word is the key to your assurance in knowing you are following His will. Searching and meditating on the Scriptures gives you the resources needed to recognize His guidance. To hear His voice and to know what is true for you. Proverbs 20:24 A person’s steps are directed by the Lord. How then can anyone understand their own way?”

We all have different plans and dreams for our lives. But it is eventually the Lord’s will that prevails. Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.” (Proverbs 19:21)

Do you start each day with a prayer of guidance from your Heavenly Father? Do you turn to His Word when decisions need to be made? Do you seek the comfort and help of His Holy Spirit in times of confusion?

Life is hard enough without trying to do it all alone. God your Father is there waiting. His right hand is outstretched reaching for you. He has a divine plan for your life. It was mapped out before the beginning of time. It is so full of love and adventure. Filled with people to meet and places to go. All you need to do is seek and listen. He will guide you every step of the way. Peace in your heart will be your message that you have found His way. Your path that He has chosen for you. Life cannot get any better than that.

God loves you and He always will!
