9 Ways of Spiritual Guidance: A Path to Divine
1. Cultivate A Daily Spiritual Practice
To seek the guidance of God, you should begin your day by dedicating time to prayers, meditation, and other spiritual practices that are in alignment with the creator, our Lord your God.
This intentional practice creates a space for God in your heart and guides you through tough times and challenges.
2. Embrace Silence and Solitude
In the hustle and bustle of modern life, finding the moment of stillness can be a challenge.
However, for seeking guidance, it’s essential to make it a priority to carve out time for silence and solitude when you can attentively listen and yield in self-control to hear the whispers of the Spirit.
In these quiet moments, you can seek clarity and inspiration.
3. Seek Wisdom from the Scripture
The Holy Bible is a profound source of wisdom and guidance.
Study its teachings regularly, reflect on its stories, and seek to understand the messages that it holds.
The Spirit of God often speaks to us through the words of scripture, illuminating our life and paths towards wisdom and truth.
4. Practice yielding to Gods voice
The ability to distinguish the voice of God from other influences can be hard. This takes time and practice.
You can cultivate a deeper understanding of God’s character, studying His ways by reading the bible, and filtering your thoughts and impulses through the lens of His teachings.
Finding God’s voice in your thoughts will help you make decisions that will align with God’s will. Never forgetting how easily we can be deceived by the wicked spirits in the higher realms of our understanding. Remembering God’s ways will always bring you peace and love.
5. Foster a Spirit of Surrender
Letting go of our desires and surrendering to God’s will can be challenging, but it’s essential for allowing the Spirit to guide us.
Pray for the strength to surrender your desires, passions, and fears to God, trusting the Holy Spirit will lead you to the path that best serves spiritual growth.
6. Open a Heart of Gratitude
Gratitude opens our hearts to the presence of God and allows His Spirit to work more profoundly.
Cultivate a spirit of gratitude by regularly appreciating and acknowledging the blessings in your life.
Expressing gratitude helps foster a deeper connection with God and invites His guidance.
7. Seek Fellowships with Like-Minded Believers
Engage in the community of fellow believers who share your commitment to spiritual growth.
Through meaningful connections, collective worship, and spiritual discussion, you can support and guide one another in the pursuit of God’s guidance.
Fill your heart and mind with any of the following:
- Listen to music that praises God, and not worldly concepts that lead you lust, greedy, and envy. Which are all sins.
- Attend a church that you feel safe with. Keep in mind just because it’s a church, doesn’t mean it’s safe. The bible speaks of false profits and that can be deceiving. Some offer streaming services. A great place to start is Living Faith Christian Church https://lfcc.org/livestream/spring-2023. If the church you find is not preaching directly from scripture in the Holy Bible, it could be man’s word, which is not of God.
- Attend a bible study and or prayer groups can help strengthen your understanding. A resource for videos that help visual learners can be found @ https://www.spokengospel.com/library.
8. Trust the Process
Easier said than done at times, but trusting the process of divine guidance requires faith, support, and patience. God’s time is not a clock. It ALL was already written, and you only have to make decisions based on what He allows your way.
Sometimes the answers we seek won’t come immediately or in the ways we want and expect.
You should have faith that God’s timing is perfect, and He will reveal His guidance in due course.
Therefore, always remain open and positive to unexpected paths and outcomes.
9. Engage in Continuous Prayer
Prayer is the direct communication with God.
Maintain a constant conversation with Him throughout the day to seek His guidance and wisdom in all matters.
You can pray using the acronym PRAY:
- Praise God and be thankful with gratitude
- Repent and acknowledge your sin
- Ask for what you need (just as a child asks their parent for what they need)
- Yield to the Holy Spirit and listen for His direction.
Allow your prayers to connect to the Spirit of God to guide your actions, thoughts, and decision.
Some Last Words….
In the tapestry of life, as we navigate the intricate threads of existence, it’s often in the moments of quiet reflection that we truly feel the presence of God.
For seeking divine wisdom, you can embark on a journey not devoid of challenges but enriched with meaning and purpose. God allows freewill, so he can’t take away the problems of the world, he can make a path for His children to get through it in a way only He can.
