The Will of God for Your Life

Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world, but let God transform you inwardly by a complete change of your mind. Then you will be able to know the will of God – what is good and is pleasing to Him and is perfect.
Romans 12:2

When faced with critical decisions in life, we ask: how will I know the will of God for me? The response is clearly written in Romans 12:2.
First, we must not conform to this world’s standards. Seek to meet God's standard instead.
Second, you must allow God to transform you inwardly. He must be the Influencer of your thoughts. All battles begin in the mind. If our minds are set on the Word of God daily, we will be victorious in all our endeavors, big or small. He must be the Lord of your thought-life.
It also says, a complete change of mind…not partial, not only when it is convenient for us to obey.
Your confidence in God has great reward! Because He will reveal to you His will and His wonderful plans.

Edna,
I don't usually ask God, but I do ask for inspiration and assistance and insight, and the Universe provides it. Maybe that's the same thing...
