How can I determine God’s will for my life?  

Here is a list of steps that will help you determine God’s will in your life:

A-Search God’s Word for direction: “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (Psalm 119:105).

B-Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you: “Thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, this is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left” (Isaiah 30:21).

C-Pray (and fast): “This is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him” (1 John 5:14, 15).

D-Seek the counsel of godly people: “Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety” (Proverbs 11:14).

E-Look for God’s Providences: “I came … to preach Christ’s gospel, and a door was opened unto me of the Lord” (2 Corinthians 2:12).

F-Study and weigh the possibilities: “In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established” (2 Corinthians 13:1).

G-Determine your heart’s desire: “May He grant you according to your heart’s desire, and fulfill all your purpose” (Psalm 20:4).

H-Have faith in God: “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths” (Proverbs 3:5, 6).

I-Aim to glorify God not self: “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31).

J-Be patient: “In your patience possess ye your souls” (Luke 21:19).

Be confident that the Lord will fulfill His promises and guide your steps in the right path.
