He guides the humble in what is right
and teaches them his way.

Who, then, are those who fear the LORD?
He will instruct them in the ways they should choose.

Psalm 25:9, 12 NIV

Do you want to know God’s will for your life? To know what he wants you to do? These two verses give us some clear direction on how we can know his way for us.

The humble and those who fear the Lord. These are the ones who can expect the Lord to teach and instruct them in his ways. Those whose pride does not lead them to think they know better. And those who honor the Lord, believing that his ways are best.

The Lord will, at times, guide even the prideful and those not committed to his ways. But only the humble and those who follow him as Lord can expect him to guide them.

Discerning God’s Will

So how can I discern God’s way for me? Seek it with a humble heart. With a heart that is committed to obedience. And if you do, he will guide you along the way you should go (Matt. 7:7). His Spirit will teach you from the Scriptures as you spend time with him there. And he will guide your heart and mind as you pray. Humbly seek his way and submit to his leading. That is how you can discern God’s will.
