Summary: ONE THING IS TO KNOW GOD'S WILL AND ANOTHER IS TO LIVE ACCORDING TO HIS WILL THAT YOU KNOW FOR YOUR LIFE
KNOWING GOD’S WILL
MAIN TEXT: PSALM 143:10
“Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God. Thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness”.
In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
God wants you to know His will; He’s not trying to hide it from you; Do you believe that? So often Christians genuinely wonder and even worry about how to know and do the will of God. You will learn to do the following:
- Believe and experience daily God’s infinite love for you. Hear when God is speaking to you.
- Identify God’s unmistakable activity in your life.
- Believe God to be and do everything He promised.
- Identify the direction God is taking in your life and recognize what he wants to do through you; know dearly how to respond to what God shows you.
- Experience God doing through you what only He can do.
When we understand and know the will of God, the work of God becomes easy to do and it will be done without stress and struggle. When we are working outside the will of God, we struggle and will not achieve good result.
It is important to know God’s will. Jesus said that His true relations are those who know and do the Father’s will: “whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother”. Mark 3:35. In the parable of the two sons, Jesus rebuked the Chief Priest and elders for failing to do the will of the Father, specifically; they did not repent and believe. Matthew 21:32.
At its most basic, the will of God is for us to repent of our sins and trust in Christ. If we have not taken that first step, then we have not yet accepted God’s will.
DO GOD’S WILL AND GOD WILL BOAST ABOUT YOU
