How to Find the Will of God for Your Life

Rom. 12:1-2
INTRODUCTION: How can a Christian know God's will in his life? Every Christian should be keenly interested in knowing God's will for his life. Whether one is seeking guidance as to a momentary problem or as to a life career, there are five steps to be followed. These may be summarized as follows: YIELD, CONFESS, PRAY, STUDY, WAIT.

YIELD. To yield is to present oneself to the Lord. It means to lay aside personal hopes, ambitions and desires. It means to want His way supremely. Paul yielded when he asked, "What wilt thou have me to do?"

CONFESS. If we want to be in the center of His will, we must confess and forsake any secret sins which we cherish. Remember the words of the Psalmist, "If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me" (Psalm 66:18).

PRAY. This simply means that we must come before the Lord regularly, asking Him to do as He has said.

STUDY. Spend much time in the Word of God. Read it while you are on your knees, asking God to speak to you through it.

WAIT. If God does not answer immediately, wait (Psalm 62:6). If you have prayed for direction and no answer comes, then God's guidance is for you to stay where you are.

GUIDANCE THROUGH THE BIBLE. God often uses verses of Scripture to guide us to take a certain definite course of action. A verse that you had never noticed before may take on new meaning because it tells you what to do at the very time when you were praying for direction (Psalm 119:105)
GUIDANCE THROUGH CHRISTIANS. It is sometimes helpful to seek the advice of mature, spiritual Christians. Their experience and counsel can often save a younger person from serious pitfalls. (Hebrews 13:7, 17).
GUIDANCE THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT. The Spirit of God can influence our convictions, our desires or our inclinations in such a way as to make God's will clear. In such cases, the guidance is so obvious that to refuse it would be the same as disobedience (Acts 11:12; 16:6, 7).
