In this season, we celebrate many graduations in which students complete one chapter of life and look forward to another. (Our daughter, Juliana, graduated preschool this week, and I know that will be the first of many graduations for her!) The wisest advice we can offer to graduates is to seek the Lord for His direction concerning their future. But even for those of us who are not graduating, we should heed the same advice by continually seeking God to direct our steps. We must know that God has a plan and purpose for our lives that He wants to reveal and fulfill every day. 

To help you in your walk of faith, I’ve listed several scriptures below from the book of Psalms that all deal with the subject of seeking God’s direction. I encourage you to read these verses and make them your own personal prayers and confessions. I pray that God will lead you along the best path for your life! -Evan Jackson
