Psalms 32:8 "I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye."
Psalms 37:23 "The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord:
and he delighteth in his way."
God wants us to directly guide us. That may not be possible when we are new to the faith. However, after learning how to determine God's will, we should seek God's wisdom in prayer and the opening of providence. Seeking counsel from others is also good, but that is secondary to personally hearing from God.
No! God has given us the power of reasoning, uses multiple ways to confirm His direction, and precludes Satan manipulating the outcome!
