I’ll be the first to admit that knowing God’s will can seem like a daunting task. I mean how do you know what God wants for you in terms of where you work, who you marry, how many kids you have? So many areas in life and so many questions.
But I believe that God’s will becomes more clear the more you obey what you know. There are clear indications in God’s word of what God’s will is. It says in 1 Thessalonians 5 to rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and give thanks in everything, for that is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
If you do those things, I believe you are closer to perceiving more of God’s will for your life. You won’t be as concerned about the details as you will trusting God in each moment and being faithful to follow the next step in front of you as God reveals it.
Above all, you can follow God’s will when you realize that God is way more concerned about who you are becoming than what you do. In other words, godly character leads to good conduct, and a person steeped in the person of God will more naturally follow the ways of God.
So basically start by living joyfully, praying non-stop, and giving thanks in every circumstance, good or bad. And if you ever get that down pat, let me know how you did it.
