Ask for Guidance. Best is to be full of Holy Spirit, first. Easier to notice and receive.
When you receive Guidance, make note of it. Best is to write it in your Prayer Journal or Conversation with God Journal, or Guidance Journal – best is with your own handwriting, but a computer will do.
Pray for your Guidance to succeed. That you will be faithful and follow through to see whatever is about is finished and complete.
Getting Guidance isn’t enough. We need to follow through. To complete what the Guidance is about. So praying for that is also a “best practice”.
Journal about your guidance. It’s an excellent way of supporting yourself, so you remember better and follow through.
An outstanding idea is to get support from people who want to encourage and support you and help you do what is valuable and important to you. Just because it is important and valuable to you.
If you do not have such support, go get some! You can even ask for Guidance how to best do this.
And – follow through. <warm grin>
Persist in following the Guidance gives you. The Guidance you receive is God telling you not only how to do something, but if you think about it or ask God – it’s also God telling you what to do. You have heard God’s “Voice” for this. It empowers you to do what God said to do. To do otherwise is to fail to do what God has asked you to do. Oops!
Persist. Until the doing of what you have asked for Guidance about – is complete and done. Finished!
