John 8:31-32, NIV: To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

Finding God's will is something we make very difficult when it should be the truth that sets us free. We must draw near to Him. We cannot hear His voice if we are not close to Him. We must spend adequate time in prayer, Bible study and individual worship. Fifteen minute quiet times are all too often too quiet and become little more than a faint whisper in the midst of our noisy lives. We need to give the necessary time to these areas so that God's influence can be easily heard above the influences of the world in our daily lives. And we need good godly counsel. This is not seeking counsel by going to someone who always agrees with us. Instead, it is asking for the thoughts of someone who walks with God and therefore will be honest and encouraging. Above all we must remember to draw near. Jesus said "If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit. Apart from me you can do nothing.
