He has His perfect will planned out for you but will never force it on you and will wait patiently for you to surrender your will and seek for Him to lead and guide you into all truth, and if you never make that choice, He honors your free will and allows you to make that decision.
Likewise, He anxiously waits for you to involve Him in your affairs by your prayers prayed in faith.

As far as natural decisions: where to work and live, who to specifically marry (just be equally yoked), whether to have kids or how many, where to vacation, etc... God, leaves all this, and much more, to our own discretion... and I thank Him for it...

We also see in Psalms 37:23, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.” And in Proverbs 16:9 “A man's heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps.”
God has taught me many things on this subject, and these are the things He has taught me to believe.

and, to walk in His ways, then He is pleased with us. With this kind of a heart, I believe that He will ultimately show us what is right.
Thank you all, God Bless and have a happy NEW year. May we walk in the newness of the Spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter, which kills.

Unfortunately, the vast majority of the body of Christ matures no further than being born again babes, and of the few that actually take the time and effort to mature, few of them are willing to lay down their lives taking up their cross daily and seeking and following His will only. Many are called, in fact all that are born again are called, but few will do what is necessary to be chosen.
All of this is throughout the New Testament and if you dig deep enough you will find it.
