Getting More Help From God

Q. I’ve often wondered to what degree the Lord will direct our steps. I’ve felt guidance on specific spiritual matters. But on matters of a secular nature, I’ve often felt alone. Is this to be expected? Do you have any thoughts on the matter?

A. From God’s perspective there is no secular life for a believer because by definition secular excludes Him. How can He be Lord of a life He hasn’t been invited to share?

If you want better advice from Him on matters of life, first apply Matt. 6:33, seeking His Kingdom and His righteousness and letting Him take care of your needs, and then follow up with Romans 12:1-2 and give your life completely to Him to do with as He pleases. As James 4:8 promises, when we draw near to God, He will draw near to us. If you do these things, my guess is that you’ll get all the direction you can use.
