Do we really seek the Lord's guidance?

"Notice the deceit - they pretend earnestly to seek the Lord's guidance, but at heart they simply desire God to approve a course they had already decided upon. All too often this is how we deal with God.We make up our minds, then close them to God's mind. Is it a wonder that we go astray?"
(Rev James Philip, Notes on Jeremiah 42:1-22, Gardenstown Church, Sunday 26th August 1956)
