advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise.”  (Prov.



6)  Be Committed to Letting Go of the Decision for God’s Sake.  We must

commit the decision, choice or uncertainty to Him.  A sure sign of

relinquishing  our will is peace from God.  (John 14:27)


Dr. Lloyd John Ogilvie, author of God’s Will in Your Life, offers these questions to ask when making decisions or considering action:


1)  Is it consistent with the 10 commandments?

2)  Will it deepen my relationship with Christ?

3)  Is it an extension of Christ’s life, message, and kingdom?

4)  If I do it, will it glorify Him and enable me to grow as His disciple?

5)  Is there a scriptural basis for it?

6)  Is it an expression of authentic love, and will it bring ultimate good in the

lives of people involved?

7)  Will it be consistent what my basic purpose to love the Lord and be a

communicator of His love to others?

8)  Will it enable me to grow in the talents and gifts the Lord has given me?

9)  Will my expenditures still allow tithing plus generous giving of my money

for the Lord’s work and the needs of others?


Take a careful look at these questions.  All may not apply, but most will.  These apply to big decisions, not those like, “Should I buy white or wheat bread today?”


If you have done the previous things, and are being honest before God, then make your decision by faith.  God said He will give you wisdom and He will if we believe and seek it.


The following article should help in shedding some light on the subject of understanding God’s will.
