God guides your life in two general ways:
- God instructs you. He does this in many ways. For example, common sense (for example, if you stick your hand in a fire, you will get burned), education (for example, two plus two equals four), Bible reading (for example, thou shalt not kill), and other ways, more ways than you will ever know.
- God delays you. He does this in many ways. For example, you decide to take a trip but your family needs your help with some problem, so you cancel your trip. Another example, you apply for a job then learn someone else has already been hired for the job, so you look for another job. Another example, a stranger attacks your child, so you fear for your child’s life then shoot the stranger. In general, God delays you from doing something or delays you from refraining from doing something.
