How can you know what God wants you to do? Use the G.U.I.D.E. principle:

G – Go to the Lord (Psalm 5:8)

• Acknowledge the Lord

• Trust God (Proverbs 3:6)

• Submit to God (Psalm 25:9)

• Pray (James 1:5)

U – Understand God’s principles (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

• Understand what the Bible clearly says (e.g. that we should obey the 10 commandments is a “no brainer”).

• Ask, “What does the Bible have to say about my specific situation?”

I - Investigate your options (Proverbs 4:5; 14:8; 21:5)

• What are the consequences of each option? (Psalm 90:12)

• Use your common sense (Proverbs 9:12; 10:13; 14:6)

• What are your gifts, abilities and talents? (1 Corinthians 12:1-9; 14:12)

D – Discuss it with others (Proverbs 12:15; 15:22; 20:18)

• Don’t be too proud to learn from other people’s mistakes.

• Listen to experienced people only (Psalm 1; 2 Chronicles 10)

E – Express your freedom

• God gave Adam freedom (Genesis 2:19-20)

• If in doubt, wait (Proverbs 21:5; Romans 14:23; Philippians 4:7)
