A Free Worksheet to Help You Discern God’s Will

Free Daily Devotionals from Open the Bible

Do not be conformed to this world,
but be transformed by the renewal of your mind,
that by testing you may discern what is the will of God,
what is good and acceptable and perfect.
(Romans 12:2)

All of us make life-changing decisions on issues where God has not given us a direct revelation in Scripture. What college should I attend? Where should I live? Should I marry and if so, who should I marry? What work should I pursue? What money should I spend, what should I save, and what should I give? What church should I join? What responsibilities should I take on? What should I decline?

When you have to make a decision, and there is no verse in the Bible that gives you clear direction, your calling is to discern.

This free printable worksheet is designed to help you discern where God may be leading you. It accompanies Pastor Colin Smith’s talk “Discerning God’s Will” from the Watch Your Life Course. (Watch that session below.)
