Good day everyone! I was led to passage and message to share with you and one that we all want to know the answer to this question of knowing God’s will for our lives. It’s so simple (I said simple, not easy). But all we need to do is fully surrender our lives completely to the Lordship of Christ, live a life of total obedience in the power of the Holy Spirit, and maintain our first love for our Lord and we will be in the will of God. If you can say to yourself you’re doing these 3 things you have your answer that you’re living in God’s will if you can’t say this, let me encourage you to get there because it’s safest and most peaceful place to be.
Have you ever wondered what God’s will is for your life? Have you needed to make a difficult decision and wondered what God wanted you to do in that situation? We all struggle with questions about our future. Questions like: How can I know God’s plan for my life? Which job should I take? Is this the person God wants me to marry? Is this a good investment to make? Should I share the gospel with my boss? You probably have questions you could add to that list.
Like I mentioned in the beginning the greatest discovery I have ever made concerning how to know the will of God involves these following three things.
* Fully surrendering my life to the Lordship of Christ
* Living a life of obedience in the power of the Holy Spirit
* Maintaining my first love for our Lord
Many Christians are trying so hard to discover the will of God that they lose the joy of the Lord and leave their first love for Him. But all we need to do is abide in Christ, maintain our first love for Him, and walk in the power of the Holy Spirit, and we will be in the will of God. So as you continue to walk in the Spirit, He will guide you in making the most important decisions of life. He will also guide you in the daily, moment-by-moment decisions and actions of your life. So the key to knowing God’s will is to be obedient to the guidance of the Holy Spirit of truth. If you are willing to trust and obey God and live a holy life, God will reveal Himself to you and direct your steps as a way of life.
Satan is the enemy of our soul. His mission is to keep us from being effective and fruitful in our witness. But although he wields great power, Satan can never defeat us if we are completely yielded and obedient to Christ. Some people are reluctant to trust God completely with their lives, fearing that He may want to make a change in their plans. Yes, He will change our plans. His plans are infinitely better than the very best we could ever conceive.
Is it not logical that the One who created us knows better than we the purpose for which we were created? And since He loves us enough to die for us, is it not logical to believe that His way is best (Romans 8:32)? Obedience is the true test of our love for Christ and the secret to discovering God’s will for our life.
Have a wonderful day as you remain in His presence. Love you all!
