3 Steps for Discerning God's Will

Sometimes we're confused about God's will. Here's 3 Biblical principles that can help us discern His specific will for us. #BibleLoveNotes #Bible #Biblestudy

"Does God want me to take this job?" 

 "Or does He want me to go back to school?" 

Sometimes we're confused about God's will. We want to obey but we're not sure which choice is best. 

God also wants us to know His will, and He offers this important advice: 

"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will." Romans 12:2

These 3 steps can help: 

1. Have confidence that God will guide you (James 1:5-7). He wants you to make the right choice.

2. Eliminate any plans that violate Scriptural principles (2 Timothy 3:16-17; Genesis 4:7). 

This is a non-negotiable. God won't bless anything morally or ethically wrong. 

3. Don't avoid plans simply because they're difficult (Luke 14:26-27). 

If God calls you to a specific path, He'll handle the difficulties. 

His plans and purposes are especially designed for us (Ephesians 2:10), and these three steps can help us discern them.

  1. I think many times we dismiss the still small voice that calls us to do things. We are looking for the large loud voice so that we know we are not mistaken or misunderstanding the call. Thanks for putting these verses together and I think the principle that "does it violate scriptural principles" sums it up.

  2. Good point, Carol. I think you're right--we sometimes are looking for dramatic guidance when we simply need to move forward in what we already know to be His will.
