15. God's will for your life

Last week we learned that anything is possible with God. It is possible with Him, and not only possible, He also wants to help. He is a loving Father with our best interests in mind. He wants what is best. He wants us to stay within His will. Now what is His will you might ask? Well, that is easy. His Word tells us clearly what His will is:

"For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men." 1 Peter 2:15

"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

"And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day." John 6:40

"...having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, that in the dispensation of the fullness of times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth - in Him." Ephesians 1:9, 10

There you have it, the perfect will of God. In summary God's will is that you do good, that you rejoice, that you pray always and give thanks in everything. It is God's will that all who believes in His Son have eternal life and be gathered together in Christ.

So in future when you are battling to find God's specific will for your life, check it against the list above. Is it a good thing that you want to do? Have you prayed about it intensely? And when you do this thing, will you be able to win souls for God so that they can also enjoy eternal life? If your answer is yes to the above, then go out and do it with joy and with thanksgiving towards God.

Do not stagnate and use the excuse that you do not want to move out because you do not know God's will for your life. God's will for your life is within the pages of the Bible. Use the above specific checklist and also read His Word. He has spoken to me multiple times through His Word. I can read any passage and then that day one passage would just tug at my heart and I will know that God wants to speak to me through it. His Word is so precious and has the ability to literally speak to you, because Jesus IS the Word.

Then of course you can get sound Biblical advice from a Christian mentor that you might have. But use only this avenue to confirm what God has already placed in your heart. The number one way is when He speaks to you directly. And He does, He can be trusted. Especially if it is a big decision like the person you want to marry, God will certainly provide guidance to you.

Life is an exciting journey with an awe-inspiring God. It is step by step, hand in hand. The future might be unknown, but you hold the hand of the One Who knows and that is enough. And as you walk and as you talk with Him, you will notice that you have been walking within His will all along. It is not supposed to be a struggle, but a delightful journey with the Love of your life. Take His hand and take the first step. He is waiting for you. Oh the delight when you take His hand and walk willingly, trusting and smiling.

Father we look forward to the journey with You. We needn't worry, because You are walking in front. Thank you so much for that. We are so privileged to have a Father like You. Hallelujah! You are awesome, amazing and we love You. Amen
