It’s a brand new year and we’re all trying to figure out our next move. Thinking about starting a new job? A new business opportunity? Maybe you’re just trying to figure out how to stay afloat another day. No matter what the crossroad may be, we’re all seeking direction. Who better to seek direction from than the all-knowing God that genuinely wants to see us win at life? Here’s a great list of verses on direction to add to your spiritual survival kit:
Seeking God for Direction
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.
The steps of a man are established by the Lord, when he delights in his way;
Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.
Thus says the Lord who made the earth, the Lord who formed it to establish it—the Lord is his name: Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.
1 John 3:22//
And whatever we ask we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him.
And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.
1 John 5:14//
And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.

How NOT to Find Direction
Do not turn to mediums or necromancers; do not seek them out, and so make yourselves unclean by them: I am the Lord your God.
1 John 4:1//
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.
