This article looks at guidance from the Lord as something we do together as saints of the Lord.
There are crucial things to know if you seek God’s guidance. First, you need to understand that it is all about Christ; this is the big picture. Second, you need to be right with God.
How does God guide? This article explains that alongside special revelation, guidance for the Christian must have as its two reference points the mind of Christ and Christian prudence.
