Bible verses about
Seeking God

When problems or decisions come, I need to turn to God and seek His guidance instead of relying on myself.

Why? Because I see only part of the picture, while God sees the whole situation. He knows what is best for me. God also wants to show me what’s right. He loves me and He wants to help me.

I must not let my pride, or anything else, keep me from seeking God’s help. Instead, I can turn to Christ and humbly admit my need for His grace and wisdom.
