When a stupid man is doing something he is ashamed of, he always declares that it is his duty. --George Bernard Shaw
I don't think God plans out every little thing I should do. In many cases, I think we are given the freedom to choose between many "good" options. Should I study medicine, or marry and raise a family - both are good things. While I may get a special calling, I think in many cases I am allowed to choose. As a result, I don't necessarily feel I need to hear something from God on every choice I face; I might ask for input, but I don't worry if I don't get any.
I think most everything falls under Biblical principals, even if it's not specific to each individual situation.
So I start with the Bible to make sure I'm heading in the right direction.
In most situations, I don't need to go farther than that--what I need is there.
