The reliability of divine guidance

In the Bible we find many accounts of people listening for God’s direction and taking the path to which spiritual inspiration and intuition lead them, step by step relying on God. Starting with Abraham, and all the way through Paul, we see examples of God’s directing and the blessings resulting from obediently following God’s guidance. In Isaiah we read, “Thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left” (30:21). And in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy we read, “All is under the control of the one Mind, even God” (p. 544).

Turning to God in prayer, I have experienced divine direction numerous times in my life and have always been blessed by following obediently. 

After my service in the United States Navy and a couple of years in a small business, I felt the need to get a clearer life path, and the idea of law school emerged as the right one. I signed up for the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and went to take it on a college campus twenty miles from home.
