3 Ways to get in God’s Will

Pastor Joe Bachman

How can you know what God’s will is for your life?

This is a question so many of us ask

Have you ever ask that question?

How about this question

How do I know if I am in God’s will?

Then what do we do we start reasoning thing out.

We start saying if I was in God’s will I would not be having so much trouble.

The truth is if your not having any trouble I would wonder if you are in God’s will

Now I am not saying if you have peace your not in God’s will

Because if you are in God’s will he will give you peace

This is not the peace that the world gives but the peace that he gives.

John 14:27

27 "Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.

NASU

You have to understand that just because you are going through troubles that does not mean that you are not in God’s will

You know you are in God’s will when you go through those problems and you look to God and you get that peace that only he can give.

John 16:33

33 "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."

NIV

Folks that’s a verse that every Christian can get excited about

In this world you will have trouble

Look at that statement

That doesn’t sound like a choice

You will have trouble

But just like the good God that he is he doesn’t leave you there look at the last part of that verse

But take heart! I have overcome the world."

That’s something we can get excited about today

He has overcome the world

No matter what the world throws at us he has overcome

And if he has overcome he can empower us to overcome

No matter what you are going through today you can overcome because he has overcome

What’s the devil’s favorite trick to try to bring down a Christian that he thinks might make a difference

Throw up to him his past

(example)

So what is the first thing you have to do to get into God’s will

PRAY

Luke 18:1

Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart,

NASU

How many of you have prayed so much for something and it seems like God is no where to be found

Then you think am I really in the will of God is that why he doesn’t seem to answer my prayers

I get that way

(Grandmother)

Randal McCloy

Pray that God will show you his will for your life

This might not happen overnight but it will happen

I prayed young

Then next thing you have to do and it is the hardest one that most people to do is

The 2nd thing to get in God’s will is

LISTEN

Ps 46:10

10 "Be still, and know that I am God;

I will be exalted among the nations,

I will be exalted in the earth."

NIV

Have you ever tried to talk to someone who doesn’t listen

You can tell their minds are on 1000 other things

God must feel like that at times

Church My story

Story about me fasting

Feed my sheep

We talk to God then we must sit back and listen to what he has to say.

How does he talk to us

His word

Dreams

Others
