How can I be sure God will guide me?

Psalm 32:8I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.

Psalm 37:23-24The steps of the godly are directed by the Lord. He delights in every detail of their lives.

Luke 12:6-7What is the price of five sparrows? A couple of pennies? Yet God does not forget a single one of them. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to him than a whole flock of sparrows.

When you are anxious or concerned, what you most often need is simply the assurance that God does indeed care about you and is watching over you. If God values the common little things of his creation, how much more must he value you, for whom he gave his own precious Son.

Jeremiah 29:11“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

God is always seeking the best for us. Just like the nation of Israel, though, there are times we may delay it through our own disobedience. But when we come back to God, he is always ready to direct us back to his path.

James 1:12God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

Philippians 1:6And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.

When you face challenges and obstacles, that doesn’t mean God has left you. God has promised to guide us through this life as we seek to become more like him. In fact, those challenges may be one way he is growing you in spiritual maturity and strength.

John 16:33I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world."

Romans 8:28And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

Jesus promises we will have troubles in this world—but he also promises we will join him in his victory over death, sin, and suffering. Rather than be discouraged or fearful when bad things happen, we can have peace knowing wrong will be made right in the end.
