Luther on Guidance!

“In answer to the anxious question as to whether the vocation I find myself in is the one God willed for me, Luther refers to the sayings of Christ that not even a sparrow falls to the ground without the will of our heavenly Father, and that all the hairs of our head are numbered.  All the external, daily events which form the course of a man’s life are guided by God and proceed from his will.”

This is God’s providence, that is, God’s love finding “expression in God’s direction in external matters.”

Again, according to Gustaf Wingren in Luther on Vocation.
