Life is a series of options, and our choices often affect the rest of our lives. So how do you know what is the right choice? What does God want you to do? And how can you be sure you're hearing him correctly?
In God's Guidance, acclaimed author Elisabeth Elliot offers you insight and observations born from a lifetime of following God's lead to show how and why God guides his children. She invites you to draw closer to God so you can walk confidently, knowing you are in his will.
"I have found in the Bible plenty of evidence that God has guided people," writes Elliot. "I find, too, assurance that he is willing to guide me. He has been at it for a long time. His hand reaches toward me. I have only to take it."
Complete with a study guide for personal or small group study, this practical book will inspire you to go to God for the big--and little--answers in life.
Elisabeth Elliot, one of the outstanding women of present-day Christianity, is the author of more than twenty books, including Passion and Purity, The Journals of Jim Elliot, and These Strange Ashes.

For me, the most helpful section of the book was closer to the end than to the beginning. Regardless, the book is full of simple, honest, and profound truths: "I feel a little wistful now and then that God leaves so much up to me. The exercise of the intelligence is taxing. Couldn't I just shut my eyes and ask for a vision?" (92); "Seeking the will of God as though it had nothing to do with anybody else leads to all kinds of distortions" (103); "I have found it true that obedience may lead me not to the fulfillment of my own ideals of spirituality but to very unexpected situations, very 'unspiritual' situations, in my view, that are meant to teach me to be meek and lowly in heart" (67).
Knowing that God's Guidance was written by a woman who lost her first husband to martyrdom, and who chose to minister among his murderers, made me eager to imbibe the truth it shares. It would be helpful for anyone who is seeking to find out what God might have for his or her future.
