okay i REALLLLLLLY have to study for my exam thats tomorrow... so im gonna have to make this brief.
today i read a chapter in "the life you've always wanted" again, and this time it was on guidance.
there was a story in the bible that really related well to the chapter in my book.
it was 1 Samuel 3: 4-11
Okay so basically when we guide, we have to use indirect means to guide our thoughts and things like that.
God does not. He can speak to us, and guide our thoughts directly even without us knowing, without the help of things like sound, images etc.
Samuel needed the help of Eli to know that God was calling him, and was guiding Him.
We need to be aware of when God is calling and guiding us.
In the book it says
"The Holy Spirit will lead you to be with people as Jesus would be with them if he were in your place."
"God's purpose in guidance is not to get us to perform the right actions. His purpose is to help us become the right kind of people."
I thought that those two phrases were so inspiring, and so TRUE.
God is truly amazing, and He guides us to where He wants to lead us, and guides us to be the right kind of people!
hahaha that was longer than i thought it would be, but theres so much more to that!
i wish i could explain better, and go into more detail... but ill have to stop there.
