Here are some of the simple bible based steps to find God’s will. It provides practical steps or preparation in discovering God’s will for your life.
- We must make Jesus our Lord and be genuinely willing to do his will. (Romans 12:1-2, Mat 6:33) There is no other alternative!
- We should respond as God would in any given situation and be obedient to his will. (Psalm 25:10)
- We should be humble and willing to learn. (Psalm 25:9)
- We must spend time in his words daily. This is the most simple and powerful, yet most forgotten or ignored fact. Study the bible, not just read it. (This is BibleSEO all about.)
- We should listen to God in prayer. (Prov 8:34) There is a old poem, which I always remember.
- “Devil trembles when he sees!
- God’s weakest child upon his knees!”
- We should completely trust God and his plans for our life. (Prov 3:5-6) Someone has said, “How can you make God laugh?”, “Tell him your plans!”
- We should have clean and pure heart. (Psalm 66:18, 1 John 1:9)
- We should be expectant. God wants to speak to us, so listen for him. Pay attention! (9 ways God Speak to His People)
- We should fear the Lord, this means hating evil and living God’s way. (Prov 8:13, Prov 9:10), it is harder to do what we hate.
- We should praise and worship our Lord, in whatever ways, you may feel comfortable.
- Fasting can immensely help. It helps us to focus our thoughts and mind towards God. (Mat 6: 16-18)
- We should act in faith. Our life should be testimony of God’s faithfulness. God is our Assurance not insurance!
