Bible - Open with coffee I taught this topic in my small group a couple Fridays ago and, based on our conversation, I updated my previous post on how to discern God's plan for your life.

Here’s how I try to help others & myself find God's plan for our lives.  Think of it as a "10-Point Biblical Checklist."

  1. Check it with the Bible – Is it clearly right or wrong?  (Psalm 119:133, James 2:10)
  2. Check it with prayer – Have you prayed and waited for an answer?  (James 1:5, Luke 18:1-8)
  3. Check it with the Holy Spirit – Is God's Spirit telling you “No”?  (Acts 16:6, Romans 8:14)
  4. Check it with praise music – Have you meditated to Biblically-sound music?  (Colossians 3:16)
  5. Check it with circumstances – Do you have a legitimate opportunity?  (Acts 16:7, Colossians 4:3)
  6. Check it with who God made you – Are you an "eye" trying to be an "ear"?  (1 Corinthians 12:17-18)
  7. Check it with Bible direction – Has God spoken to you in the word?  (Jeremiah 32:6-8)
  8. Check it with your spiritual leaders – What have they said?  (Hebrews 13:17)
  9. Check it with other spiritual counselors – What have they said?  (Proverbs 11:14)
  10. Check it with yourself – What do you want to do?  (1 Corinthians 16:12, Psalm 37:4)

Hope it helps everyone.
