But how.. how do we get there? I say, keep on seekin' God and his will for your future especially in the areas of upwards (worship and prayer), inwards (study and edification), and outwards (for biblical discipleship and evangelism).
Who cares what people think. I want you happy all the way! And the Lord does far more. You know that God made you and has good reasons for doing that, and he knows all about you through and through.. much better than you know about you.
God already knows your strengths, your skills, your close friends and experiences.. your education, and your weaknesses too. God also knows your feelings, dreams, aspirations and deepest desires.
Most of all, he radically loves you, and he knows exactly what's best for you in the future, both in the coming days, months and years for the rest of your life. Why not seek him and his will? Why not take some time away from all the media input to ask, seek, and knock. God's voice ..in totally harmony with His Spirit and Book called the Bible.. can still be heard.
These are days for you to have hope and be a transmitter of hope. The Bible says, "'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future'" (Jeremiah 29:11).
How can you discover God's will? The Bible has a lot to say about God's will. What he approves and doesn't like. He sure doesn't like anything that hurts or destroys people.
I say pray your way into the middle of it--don't stop until you are there and are convinced of that.
God will meet all your needs as you look to Him instead of to this world's system or elsewhere.
The first step into the will of God is to repent, to turn from wrong-doin's and to Him. It's to fully trust Him and turn your life over to His son Jesus Christ. When you do this, you'll actually become regenerated (God will do this), become a spiritually born again member of his family ..yes, forever, and you can look to him as Lord each and every day for the help, the guidance, the protection, and all the provisions that you'll need. Go hear and go tell.
