so im a bit confused as to how God's will can fit into my life... How do I know im on the path that God wants me to be on; because i've heard that God has an ideal plan for each of us individually, but sometimes our own will and actions conflict with His plan so we ultimately miss out on God's perfect plan for our life. SO my question is, if we stay close to Christ, and apply His teachings to our lives...then are we safe...(ie. living out His plan?)
And for certain big decisions that we have to make throughout the course of our lives .. how can we know what God wants us to do? Will He make sure everything works out according to His will somehow so long as I stay close to Him, love Him, and essentially seek His will for my life?
