When tough times call, most people, even non Christians, often find themselves uttering a small prayer of guidance. For Christians, they understand and know that Christ has their best interest. Of course, it doesn’t make it any easier to accept uncertainty.
As a Christian one of the foremost things you do as you enter into Christianity is that you are required to fully surrender everything to the Holy Spirit’s guidance.
He will take whatever’s bad in your life and transform them inside out; turning you into the best possible person you can be under Christ.
This may seem easy but it takes a long time to finally reach the point where we can fully surrender our needs, wants and other so-called necessities and simply trust that Christ through the Holy Spirit will provide for everything.
On the other hand, entering through this relationship doesn’t mean it’ll be peaches and cake since as humans; we are predisposed to doubt and fear.
So if you find yourself in a situation where you feel like you’re going through a dark tunnel with no end in sight, here are a few important Bible Verses to remember as you utter prayer for guidance.

When praying, keep these verses in mind. Quote them back to the Lord and claim them as part of your life. You are a child of God, and he does have beautiful plans for you and your life.
Even though uncertainty and other problems might beset you right now, rest assured that the Lord is always there to help and guide you. All you have to do is ask for his help.
