It appears that God is a signpost person not a map or even a compass! Experience tells me when we come to possible options in our lives, God reveals i.e. gives peace, clearly opens doors, clearly shuts doors, uses others. He wants us to walk by faith that journey until we need further direction.
The challenge is to keep in a position to both see the sign posts and be able to read them! God doesn’t issue maps on his adventures and tell us to phone him when we need advice. He walks with us and helps us with every step. He shines light so we can see and sets our feet on secure places so we won’t slip. He even holds our hand.
Alternatively, we can go it alone and end up in dead end streets!
