What is God’s will for your life? Does He have a specific will for you to follow? As Christians, how should we pick a career, choose a mate, or decide where to live?

A short course in discovering God’s will for our lives looks something like this: Pray and ask God for wisdom (James 1:5). Then, read the Bible regularly. We cannot know the will of God apart from the word of God. Next, seek wise biblical counsel from people who also pray and read God’s word.

Also, learn to follow the inner promptings of the Holy Spirit. At times, His promptings are mysterious. But walking by the Spirit is always a great adventure (Ephesians 5:16). Finally, like the Apostle Paul, discern God’s will through the doors He opens and closes for you.
