Knowing God's Will for Me

Knowing God's Will for Me

I often get turned in knots trying to figure out THE WILL OF GOD. Should I go here, do this, say this? What does God think about the things in my life?

"No one can know a person’s thoughts except that person’s own spirit, and no one can know God’s thoughts except God’s own Spirit. And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us."

1 Cor. 2:11-12

God's will, like His imagination, thoughts, emotions, are only known by His Spirit. His Spirit alone can reveal God's heart. So if I want to know God's will, I need to spend time getting to know God's heart for me, the world, and His church, as revealed by His Spirit. God doesn't just want to give us the best answer to our fork in the road, but He wants to give us a new heart--His.
