We have to live for Christ in our heart or will never achieve the life he intended us to have. God will help us in life if we actively seek Him. The Holy Spirit resides in our heart when Christ is asked to come in. The Holy Spirit will lead and guide us when we are prayerfully seeking direction. Be careful who you seek advice from. Often we get conflicting opinions from others and the only one that matters is the Lord’s.
“In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:6
