Without any exception, we all come to several cross-roads in our life when we are trying to figure out, “Which way should I go?” “What should I do now?” “Which road must I take?” If we take the time to carefully consider the essentials, the opportunities, the possibilities, and the options, we realize we cannot do it all. We have to be selective. We have to be discerning. Every path will not be as equally satisfying and productive. If we sincerely desire to know and do the will of God, then we should consider these six guidelines. This is not an exhaustive list at all. We must search our own motives and ensure that they are genuine and pure. We must consciously surrender our will to the will of God – let God be God in our life and on the journey. We must feed our minds on good, sound, reliable information. Let’s not be deceived – let’s stick with the truth and follow it. We must sincerely pray to God and ask for His wisdom and His guiding hand in our life. We must obey what the Word of God and the Spirit of God show us. And, finally, we must wait in faith for the gradual unfolding of God’s plan for our life. Whatever we do, let’s go God’s way!
