“Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious spirit lead me forward on a firm footing.” Psalm 143:10
One of the biggest questions people always ask, is how do I know what the will of God is for my life? The only chance you have of ever knowing what God’s will is for your life is to be totally surrendered to Him, let me repeat this so you completely understand it. The only chance you have of ever knowing what God’s will is for your life is to be totally surrendered to Him. I say this every morning and you too have got to be at a place in your life where you say it as well. “Lord, whatever you want me to do, wherever you want me to be, I am yours.” Let me assure you right here, it is no accident that you live where you live, work where you work, play where you play.The biggest hurdle to overcome in knowing God’s will for our life is the fear of the unknown. How will my life be different if I really let God have His way? Trust me, He loves you, cares about you, and only wants the best for you.
The other basics to knowing God’s will is to be totally “plugged in.” By that, I mean praying every day, in the Word, fellowshipping, and serving God. It is only that intimate daily contact that allows us to really hear what He is saying. God talks to us in a variety of ways . . . through His word, in passages of scripture that prick our hearts, and in prayer as we hear that “still small voice” guiding us. A big way is through the circumstances in our life. God knows how to open doors and shut doors. Many of our problems occur when we force our way through a door He has shut.
