Getting God's Guidance : Sunday's Guidance Dose - August 12th 2012

Sunday's Guidance Dose - August 12th 2012 

Getting God's Guidance   

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not
on your own understanding; in all your ways
acknowledge him, and he will direct your paths."
- Solomon (Proverbs 3:5-6).

A Daily Dose Devotional Reader writes, "My husband
and I started a business a year ago and it has been
a constant struggle. How can we know if what we are
doing is God's goal/purpose for us?"

First, as indicated you are doing the right thing by
seeking God's direction in prayer.

Second, are you gifted for the work that you are
doing? I don't believe God ever calls us to do things
that he hasn't already gifted us for.

Third, are you adequately trained for what you are
doing? This is a constant challenge in today's
competitive world because if we don't keep upgrading
our training, we can easily get left behind.

Fourth, is what you are doing in harmony with the will
of God based on principles as found in his Word,
the Bible? This is very important if we are to get
God's blessing.

Fifth, is what you are doing a business or service that
people want? It doesn't matter how good a product or
service is, if people don't want it, it won't succeed.

Sixth, keep in mind, too, that a big percentage of new
businesses never survive. It takes all of the above
plus hard work, determination, and stick-ability.
Very few successful projects happen without these

Seventh, above all we need to keep seeking God's
direction by every day committing and trusting our
life, our loved ones, our work, and all that we are
doing to the Lord in prayer. By way of interest,
whenever I have a problem, challenge, question or
struggle, I always ask God to face me with the truth
and reality of the situation I am in. Once I see the
truth and reality I pretty much know what I need to do.

Prayer: "Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank you that you
are interested in every detail of my life. Again this
day I commit and trust every aspect of my life to you.
Please give me the insight to see the reality in every
situation I am in. And then, help me to know what I need
to do and give me the courage to do it no matter what
it is. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer.
Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Sunday and God Bless you.
