How does God guide us? – Your questions answered

Guidance is something we’re all looking for. What career should I choose? Who should I marry? Whenever we’re facing big decisions (or even small decisions!) we want to know what the right choice is. As Christians, we believe that God guides us. But how?

Here’s a brief video which introduces the big picture of how God guides us today.

How God guides us: key points

  • We need to look at the big picture of what God wants us to do with our lives.
  • The big picture is found in the two greatest commandments (love God and love our neighbour) – Mark 12:29-31.
  • How do we know what that actually looks like?
  • We love God by asking him to help us – Psalm 25:4-5. God loves us when we ask him for his help and guidance.
  • The 10 Commandments are a guide to how we love others – they’re God’s framework for helping us know how to love.
  • The rest of the Bible helps us to understand what God’s will is for us.
  • You could sum it up in Proverbs 3:5-6.
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.
