Recently, I wanted to discern God’s voice, but more importantly, His direction. Despite my best efforts to do what is right for God, there are many times when I get it completely wrong.
But even in these moments, I can still turn to my Heavenly Father and ask for His forgiveness. Moreover, I pray these scriptures are helpful to you, just as much they are to me.
I always tell people, I don’t write for others without first writing for myself. I refer to these scriptures time and time again to continue to seek His way!
–––If you find yourself in a place where you simply need direction from God, here are 10 scriptures that can help you find God’s way.

Praying the Word of God.
Father God, I come humbly before Your Throne in prayer. You are my Shepherd and for this reason, I shall not lack (Psalm 23:1). Thank You for showing me great and mighty things I don’t know by calling out to You (Jeremiah 33:3). It is for this reason that I come to You, Father God. My prayer is that You lead and guide me the way only You can. According to Your Word, I shall hear which way to take – whether right or left (Isaiah 30:21). Please give me clear instructions so I can determine the direction You wish me to take. God, I can ask my family and friends for help, but I want to turn to you directly for guidance. I am instructed in Your Word that no man can teach me, but only The Anointing can do that (1 John 2:27).
I pray through the power of the Holy Spirit that I am driven and guided in the right direction that I should follow (John 16:13). I pray that I have the grace to move where it is You desire of me. I pray You order and guide my footsteps (Psalm 119:133). Most importantly Father God, I want to get this right. I want to move where You want me to be. Your word says there is a way that seems right but in the end only leads to death (Proverbs 14:12). Keep me from being deceived and help me move toward where You want me to be. For this reason, I present this issue ____ and pray in the name of Jesus Christ (John 14:14). I pray I am peacefully directed to where You would have me to go. I declare a significant victory in the name of Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 15:57). Amen.
