Read Scriptures that promise the Answer you Need.

If there is something you want, find it in the Bible. Then meditate on the scripture(s) you find.
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. (Joshua 1:8)
Jesus is our example: When Jesus was in the wilderness, Satan began to tempt him to get off track. Because Jesus was fasting and hungry, Satan told Jesus to turn the stones into bread. Jesus responded with the word of God: “It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.” Then Satan showed Jesus all the kingdoms of the world and told Jesus that He could have them if He would bow down and worship him (the devil). Jesus responded with the word of God: “It is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” Satan then took Jesus to the top of the temple and told Jesus to jump off. Satan even tried to quote scripture saying that the angels would catch Him. But Jesus only responded with the true word of God: “It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.” (Luke 4:3-12)
Recently, I had to make a decision to change jobs. This was a difficult decision because I didn’t want to leave the job I had without having another one lined up. So, I began to seek God to find out where to go. I continued to search the scriptures but did not get a specific word from God. I continued to work as usual, although I had a strong urge to leave the company I was with. Finally, after a year, I turned in my two-week notice, not knowing where I was going, but just following the urge I had in my heart. Immediately after, my husband began getting the answers he needed that would help us launch our internet ministry. Then I began to see where God was leading me. He was leading me to do what He wanted me to do and not what I thought was the right thing to do. But I still needed a scripture to stand on.
Then, it came to me. Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: (Genesis 12:1)
