How do you know if it is God's will?

How do you ask God what to do?

You say, ‘God, what shall I do? Write down the answer that comes. Test this against the following questions and ask the advice of one or maybe two people who are the most reliable advice-givers in your life.

·         Is this proposed course of action selfish?
·         Is there a bad motive hiding under a good one?
·         Does this proposed course of action meet the needs of others generally?
·         Does this proposed course of action meet the needs of someone who is suffering?
·         Does this proposed course of action enable me to be of maximum service?
·         Is there a cost? If so, what is the cost?
·         Would anyone else be affected negatively?
·         If so, must their consent be obtained?
·         Would this produce an inappropriate imbalance in my life?
