Scripture | Proverbs 25:2, “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.” 

Lesson 31 | How Do I Daily Discover God’s Will For My Life? 

Seek God daily in your prayer times and Bible readings to receive that which He is wanting to reveal to you.  Jesus promised in Matthew 7:7, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”  Thus, God is always willing to reveal His will for our lives, we just have to be willing to ask, seek, and knock until He does. 

As the above passage states, we should be eager to search out the “matters” of God.  It is a good thing to understand His mind and will for our lives.  That is why I believe consistent personal devotions are so important to the disciple. Everyday we should quiet our heart and listen to what God is saying to us. 

Often times God will whisper to your heart a simple word that will change the direction you are headed in.  And when you obey Him you will see the absolute miracle His direction really was.  For example, one time I was considering leaving the church I was pastoring to pursue my education and I asked God in prayer, “What should I do?”  Then God spoke to me to stay and see what He had in store.  In just a short time many great things began to happen that I couldn’t even had imagined!  Our church was given the chance to host a Bible college cohort, travel overseas and train pastors, and my wife was able to quit her job and join me fulltime in the ministry! 

I literally would have missed all that God had for me if I wasn’t able to hear and obey God’s will for my life.  Therefore, no matter what questions you may have about direction in your life remain patient and wait for Him to speak to you.  God promised He would lead and guide you into green pastures with waters that will refresh your soul, Psalm 23:2-3!Jesus also said in John 10:27, “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.”  Always be ready to hear God’s voice and follow Him!
