Does the Bible give a formula for finding God's will?


While the Scriptures do not give a precise formula for discovering God's will in intensely personal circumstances, they do plainly tell us that we have a Guide, Jesus Christ, who will lead us in the right direction and help us make fundamentally sound choices in major and minor decisions.

We are enjoined by God to rationally seek His will for our lives (our part), but ultimately we must depend upon Him for sure and certain guidance (His part). We do not have all the details, but we do have an all-knowing, all-loving, and all-powerful Guide, Jesus Christ, who promises guidance to His followers (His part).

Keep this verity in mind . . . You want guidance, and God will provide it. Supremely though, you desire to better know the personal Guide who unerringly leads you in righteous paths. This is the right and true context for seeking the will of God.
