What Is Jesus Will for My Life?

Have you ever found yourself asking the question, “What is Jesus’ will for my life?” It’s a common question that many Christians ask themselves at some point in their spiritual journey. The good news is that the Bible provides us with guidance on how to discern God’s will for our lives.

Seeking God’s Will

The first step in discovering God’s will is to seek Him earnestly. This means spending time in prayer and reading His Word.

The book of James tells us, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him” (James 1:5). If we want to know what God’s will is for our lives, we need to ask Him.

Listening For His Voice

After seeking God, we need to be open and receptive to hearing His voice. This can take many forms – it could be a still small voice in our hearts or a message through someone else.

John 10:27 says, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” As believers, we have the Holy Spirit dwelling within us who can speak to us if we are willing to listen.

Obeying His Commands

Once we have sought God and heard from Him, the next step is obedience. Jesus said in John 14:15, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.”

Sometimes obeying God’s will for our lives may require stepping out of our comfort zones or making difficult decisions. But as we obey Him, He promises to guide us every step of the way.

Trusting In His Plan

Finally, it’s important that we trust in God’s plan for our lives. Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.

In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Even when we don’t understand what God is doing in our lives, we can trust that He has a plan and that it is for our good.


In conclusion, discovering God’s will for our lives requires seeking Him earnestly, listening for His voice, obeying His commands, and trusting in His plan. As we follow these steps, we can be confident that we are walking in the path that God has laid out for us. Remember, “The steps of a man are established by the Lord when he delights in his way” (Psalm 37:23).
