Ever have trouble determining God’s will for your future?

You’re not alone. The questions are endless. Every new responsibility brings new decisions.

How in the world do we know what God wants?

To know God’s will, we must totally surrender to God’s will.

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him (Romans 12:1 MESSAGE).

Our tendency is to make God’s decision for him. Don’t go to God with options and expect him to choose one of your preferences. Go to him with empty hands — no hidden agendas, no crossed fingers, nothing behind your back. Go to him with a willingness to do whatever he says.

Have trouble determining God’s will for you?

The Bible says that if you surrender your will, then he will “equip you with everything good for doing his will” (Hebrews 13:21). It’s a promise!
