Most individuals assume that there are at least three principal methodologies for doing anything: God's methodology, Satan's methodology, and the methodology that is in their best interests. Seeking God's will is generally not something that they do on a systematic basis. Instead, they often choose to do what they believe to be in their best interests. They may seek his will on a specific issue, but 95% of their lives is lived by their standards, their rules, and their precepts. The idea that one should consult with God on an ongoing basis on every issue seems intrusive and violative of their sense of individuality and self governance.
What most individuals fail to realize is that although God waits for you to seek his advice on issues, the devil always and under every circumstance seeks to convince you that his way is better. If you never seek the council of the Holy Spirit Of God, you always will be doing what the devil wants you to do. The notion that there is a third option--what's best for you--is entirely false because God already has chosen that option. He already has identified the path that leads to your heart's most profound desires.
