Guard Us, Guide Us – Divine Leading in Life’s Decisions is an excellent book.
In this book, J.I. Packer and Carolyn Nystrom seek to free us from the fear of having to make daily decisions—some big, some small. We seek to submit the choices we make to God’s will. But many of us are fearful and confused because we do not know how God guides.
How will we know when God is guiding or when we are just making a mistake?
Beginning with an exploration of Psalm 23, they show that as our Good Shepherd, God has promised to both guide and guard us, his sheep.
We need not doubt that he will lovingly grant the guidance we need as we seek him.
In this rich study of divine guidance, Packer and Nystrom show the importance of cultivating a lifestyle of Bible-based wisdom and discernment.
Guard Us, Guide Us is a book I highly recommend as good reading for the new year.
