J. I. Packer has a very helpful section in his book, Knowing God on common pitfalls when it comes to seeking God’s guidance in one’s life.

So, get a copy of Knowing God at your earliest convenience and be blessed as you read it with your head and heart. Continue reading
“At the point of divergence the difference between right and wrong, between truth and falsehood, is not a chasm but a razor’s edge” (John Murray – from Chapter VI of his book, Principles of Conduct, 1957).
Spiritual Leadership is not won by promotion, but by prayers and tears.
It is attained by much heart-searching and humbling before God; by self-surrender, a courageous sacrifice of every idol, a bold uncompromising, and uncomplaining embracing of the cross, and by an eternal, unfaltering looking unto Jesus crucified.
This is a great price, but it must be unflinchingly paid by him who would be a real spiritual leader of men, a leader whose power is recognized and felt in heaven, on earth and in hell.
