It’s our greatest dilemma. We don’t know what to do. All of us face moments and seasons when we are perplexed about the next steps. When we are confused or wandering.
This is why the Bible is so important. It is God’s Word directly to us. The Holy Spirit is given to the willing follower so that he/she might “freely know the things given to us by God.” It is a “lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.”
A SIMPLE LIST
… is given in Romans, Chapter 12 of God’s marching orders. It is profound. It is beautiful. It leads to the best life for us and others. And, it is abundantly clear. Take a moment and meditate on each of these instructions. This is not just a nice list. It is a set of instructions for living. I can promise you that, whatever your question about your next step, there is direction for you here in Romans 12:9-21.
Now you know what to do. Cry out for God’s empowering grace to obey and go meet the day!
Father, thank You that Your will for us is clear. There is no ambiguity with You. And thank You that Your will is “good, and acceptable, and perfect” (lacking in nothing). I trust in You to fill me with Your Spirit and empower me to do what You are instructing me to do … and I will trust You with the results!

All of us appreciate a good accounting system, even if we are not the ones administering it. You are grateful when you go to a store, that they will only charge you what is advertised. In business, you want to know how things will be recorded and have a clear understanding of what will be done, particularly when it’s your money that is involved.
God has an accounting system and Paul, when finally enlightened, realized that it was completely opposite of what he had operated under for years.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. (Ephesians 1:3)
Do you realize what God has done for you in Christ? Notice the three uses of "bless" in the verse above. Paul blesses God because he has blessed us with every spiritual blessing.
