Every person has a God-given destiny.

Some of us may know what our purpose in life is while others are still not sure.

One thing is for sure, though, all of us are to seek God’s will for our lives.

He has a divine purpose for each one of us and once we find it, our lives will never be the same.

2 Steps to Seeking God’s Will

If you’re wondering how you can seek God’s will for your life or in a particular situation, then you may find this two-step approach helpful.

1.  Pray

In your prayer times, all you have to do is ask God what His will is for your life.

Jesus in Matthew 7:7 said:

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”

You can be sure that God wants to lead you, guide you, and give you the answers to your questions at just the right time.

However, sometimes we don’t go to God to ask Him about His will because we aren’t sure how we are going to receive His answer.

That leads us to step #2.

2. Meditate on God’s Word

Many times God will reveal His will for us through His Word.

As we read the Bible daily, chapter by chapter, and verse by verse, God will make a certain Bible verse stand out more than the rest.

Many times the answer will be in that Bible verse or in that passage of Scripture.

The Holy Spirit inside of you will bear witness that God’s answer to your question is in that Bible verse.

The important thing is to not just read a random chapter of the Bible when you have some free time.

Instead, you need to read the Bible daily and it would great to stick to a Bible plan.

Here are some great Bible-reading plans to help you be more consistent in your daily reading.

Other ways that God may answer you is through other people, or He may speak to you through a persistent inner voice (e.g. the Holy Spirit that resides in you), or through a dream.

The important thing is that you be open to God speaking to you and be sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s leading.

How to Keep Pushing Forward

Once you know your divine purpose, you have to stay encouraged until that purpose is fulfilled.

It can take a long time for God’s will in your life to come to pass because He is shaping you and molding you every day.

You may not know how to reach that destiny or see it in the near future. However, you should not get discouraged.

To not lose sight of your purpose, you have to keep the vision of the end goal always before you.

And remember, no one can stop your destiny.

What God said He will do, will come to pass. God cannot lie.

In the Meantime

You should encourage others and help them reach their God-given destinies while you’re waiting.

The more you help others, the more God will help you.

Also, it will take your mind off of the waiting period.

Have patience and let things happen in God’s timing.

Your best days are ahead of you.
