- Make sure your plan is in harmony with God's Word.
- Ask mature Christians for their advice.
- Check your own motives - are you seeking to do what you want or what you think God wants?
- Pray for God to open and close doors as he desires.
The Holy Spirit guides us to the right places, but he also guides us away from the wrong places. As we seek God's will it is important to know what God wants us to do and where he wants us to go, but it is equally important to know what God does not want us to do and where he does not want us to go.
