I have done istakhara through Quran. The meaning of the Ayaah is good, but is out of context.

I am still confused. I can give you more details if required. Would really appreciate your help in this regard.

As Salamu Alaikum wa rahamatullah,

Welcome to Islamicity sis.
I don't know if we can do Istekharah thru Qur'an. There's no such sunnah nor anywhere in Quran.
We are to perform istekharah by the way shown by our Prophet practiced by the sahabas as well. Just a 2 rakah of salah and the dua of Istekharah. Thats it. Aisa koi tareeqah deen mein nahi hai, ki quran se istekharah karein.
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “All the descendants of Adam are sinners, and the best of sinners are those who repent."
