Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow.
Psalm 25:4, NLT

David expressed his desire for guidance. How do we receive God’s guidance? The first step is to want to be guided and to realize that God’s primary guidance system is in his Word, the Bible. By reading it and constantly learning from it, we will gain the wisdom to perceive God’s direction for our lives. We may be tempted to demand answers from God, but David asked for direction.

When we are willing to seek God, learn from his Word, and obey his commands, then will we receive his specific guidance.

I was especially struck by this sentence (emphasis mine): We may be tempted to demand answers from God, but David asked for direction.
