"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths" (Prov. 3:5-6).
It is not for us to tell the Lord how to lead us. We are to let Him lead us any way He wants to!
But it is for us to find out from the Word of God how He does lead. And He leads, first of all, by the inward witness.
We can also see in the Book of Acts and elsewhere how at times some believers received guidance through a vision; others received guidance from an angel who appeared to them and told them certain things.
Such phenomena, however, didn't happen every day in these people's lives. They occurred once or twice in the entire lifetime of some of them. So that's not the ordinary way God leads - but He can if He wants to.
Often God is trying to bear witness with our spirit - trying to guide us - but we won't listen, because we want something spectacular, such as a vision, or an angel. But we must remember that anything God does is supernatural!
Confession: I trust in the Lord with all my heart. And I lean not to my own understanding. In all my ways I acknowledge Him, and He directs my paths.
