Six Steps For Finding God’s Will

All Topics, Prayer, The Prophets, Wisdom



George Meuller


A Teaching Outline by George Mueller (1805-1898)


1.    I seek at the beginning to get my heart into such a state that it has no will of its own in regard to a given matter.


2.    Having done this, I do not leave the result to feeling or simple impression.  If I do so, I make myself liable to great delusions.


3.    I seek the will of the Spirit through, or in connection with, the Word of God.


4.    Next, I take into account providential circumstances. These often plainly indicate God’s will in connection with His Word and Spirit.


5.    I ask God in prayer to reveal His will to me outright.


6.    Thus, through prayer to God, the study of the Word, and reflection, I come to a deliberate judgment according to the best of my ability and knowledge.
