"Unless we're willing to humble ourselves and admit that God really does know better than we do, there's no way we're going to [take a chance]. The counsel of others who have gone before us is invaluable, too. Look around you at some of the Christian leaders in your life. I guarantee each one has something to teach you, if you're willing to learn."
--Rev. John Ed, "Treasures of a Transformed Life"
Any time we ask for advice... we need to ask with humbleness of heart, right? We ask because we do not know. It's the same with God - we ask for help and guidance because we do not know the big picture.
God answers in all kinds of ways! It may even be through the people that are already in your life... through words they say, suggestions they make, gifts they give you...
The key is to be open to what is said.
Who are the people in your life you want to listen to more? You want to pay attention to more? What do they have to teach you?
Guidance can happen in so many ways... This is just one!
