Figuring Out God’s Will For Your Life

A post I read this morning titled “Mystery of God’s Will” had some statements that reminded me of a time in my life when I was searching for the presence of God in my life–when I was struggling and figuring out God’s plan for me. For example these questions in the post seemed like questions that I personally mouthed a few years ago: “Lord, what’s wrong with me? Why are you not using me? Does your will even have a plan for my life?”  These are all questions that you will wonder on the road to figuring out God’s will for you life.

Figuring out God’s will for your life is not easy–it is confusing and worrisome. You may even think that God is hiding from you–that he does not want you to understand what he wants you to do. During my struggle, I have come to realize that God wants us to know his will even more than we want to know it.

While I had a really tough time understanding his will for me then, I would say that it was an experience I would still be willing to go through again if I had to.

If you are at a point in your life where you are struggling to understand the will of God for you, keeping in mind these promises will greatly help you:

“I know the plans that I have for you, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

“We know that in everything God works for good for those who love him, for those who are called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28).
