Getting into specifics, how do I make life decisions by discerning God’s will for my life? There is a basic framework in God’s word through which we interpret all decisions in our lives. One of those primary frameworks and lens is putting the kingdom of God first and foremost. If we put the kingdom first, that will exclude certain college, career, and marriage decisions. However, many of those decisions are not right and wrong but rather good, better, and best. Therefore, we pray and seek wisdom to make the right decision at the right time.
