 I need guidance

Hi I am kind of confused. A little over a year ago My ex broke up with me. All the signs pointed to God bringing us together infact the night before she broke up with me a preacher said that we were meant to be together. Now I have met someone else, Im happy but I am scard to
try to figure out what God is doing here. Also I am thinking about going to a Christian college next year, and I guess to make a long story short; what should I do?

 Re: I need guidance

Hello Rday, welcome.

a preacher said

Paul stated regarding the Bereans "Act 17:11 Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so."

Not to wretch that out of the context he was speaking of, but a good principle nontheless.
There are many preachers here on this site that you can listen to and hope you do, much wisdom and insight. But our trust is not in them but in the Lord.

1Th 5:21 [b]Test[/b] all things, and hold firmly that which is good.

Pro 3:5 [b]Trust[/b] in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
Pro 3:6 In all thy ways [b]acknowledge him[/b], and he shall direct thy paths.

Jam 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him [b]ask[/b] of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

Better summed up:

Mat 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

In other words, pray.

i really don't need to add anything to that reply. I would simply like to agree...pray.

Two verses are helpful to me (please forgive me if i am taking out of context) in discerning God's will:

Matthew 6:33 - "and he will give you all you need from day to day if you live for him and make the Kingdom of God your primary concern." (NLT)

Often i have wanted God's help and direction but his help and direction are clearest when i am making His Kingdom my primary concern. That is essential.

John 15:7 "But if you stay joined to me and my words remain in you, you may ask any request you like, and it will be granted." (NLT)

That whole section on the vine is helpful to me. As i walk with the Lord (abide in Him) so much becomes do i abide? Obey what i already know to be true. As i am faithful in that which i know He will guide me in other areas and reveal His will.

Just some thoughts that i have found helpful...and yes continue to pray.

God Bless you,

when it comwa to guidance I love what Abrahams servant said " I being in the way the Lord led me" if we try to wlak always in the Spirit guidance should be a gentle witness in our ear.
