When we find ourselves in a bind, sometimes the last thing we think of doing is asking the Holy Spirit to guide us. That should be the first thing we think of doing. God has a plan that may not coincide with our own. But we should be prepared to do it, whatever it is. God will never ask for anything immoral or dishonest, but He may ask for something that seems illogical or imprudent. Pray for guidance and then "do whatever He tells you." He has the plan!
