Seek God's revelations
'He made known to us the mystery of his will.' Ephesians 1:9 NIV
When we teach someone something, we impart some of our wisdom to them. This gives that person a new understanding of something or reveals something that was once unclear or a mystery. This is exactly what God loves to do for us, only God-sized! We will never fully understand him or his ways, but he longs to reveal himself to us and impart some of his infinite wisdom into our lives.
It can be scary or confusing when we don't know which path or direction to take: for our relationships, career or spiritual life. But when we ask God he promises to show his purpose for our lives. He loves revealing things about his good and abundant character; he delights in revealing promises, breakthroughs and blessings. And he imparts this by his Spirit and through his Word, the Bible. He also reveals his will through the encouraging or kind words or actions of others, or we may wake up one morning with a different perspective about something.
God's will for our lives is amazing and big picture. He has 'made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfilment - to bring unity to all things in Heaven and on earth under Christ' (Ephesians 1:9-10 NIV).
So what now? Ask God to reveal his will for your day, a new thing about his character, or a promise he has for your future. Seek his revelations! They are for a great purpose.
