Seven Ways to Know God’s Perfect Will for your Life

  1. Ask God to show you His will for your life. I pray and ask God to guide me every morning. There are dozens more verses other than the ones I listed that are a prayer to God for Him to lead our lives.

Psalm 5:8 O Lord, lead me in Your righteousness because of my foes; Make Your way straight before me.

Psalm 25:5 Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You I wait all the day.

Psalm 27:11 Teach me Your way, O Lord, And lead me in a level path Because of my foes.

2. Declare Jesus to be the Lord of your life, and make the commitment that you will obey Him no matter how hard or difficult His will may be. I make this commitment every morning along with asking for His strength to accomplish His will for my life.

Romans 12:1–2 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

3. Pay close attention to the circumstances and details of the events of your life. God opens doors and gives opportunities on a regular basis. He guides us in our life by changing circumstances in our everyday life. The problem for many is that the open doors are open for a short time and many people are so indecisive because of fear of failing that they miss many divine appointments. I am personally very careful in interpreting problems in life as closed doors. Problems and difficulties in accomplishing great things for God are normal, but many bail on pursuing God’s goals for their life because of hard times.
