It's an interesting note from one of Henry Blackaby's devotionals.

If you are walking daily with the Lord, you will not have to find God's will—you will already be in it.

He says also that the Disciples never had to ask what was next, they simply followed Jesus.  Where He lead they went.

Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life.

Blackaby also said that if we are following Christ then we don't need a map. 

Trusting in a GPS can sometimes get you into trouble.  You're relying on a gizmo to safeguard your way from point A to point B. 

There's a line from a hymn that comes to mind "where He leads me I will follow..."

The question remains is who is in the driver's seat?  If it's me then I have a problem, since only the one who is known as 'the Way' knows where I am to be going!  I have made a great deal of mistakes in my life thinking that I saw the plan of God for me and jumped the gun to get into it.  I made messes so great that it has taken years to straighten out.  In hindsight anyway, from my perspective, that is.  Patiently waiting when I think I know often shows me there's something else that I need to consider.  I don't always remember that but thankfully Jesus is there to remind me, just like He did the Disciples.

The greatest joy is indeed to be found in a life where you are at the center of God's will for you.  It's only found through obedience and trust in Jesus.  Seek it today.  Let go of 'self' today. No amount of earthly joy will compare to the joy God grants in obeying Him.
