The Will of God (pt. 1)
So often in life we get to places where we do not know what to do next. This is very true in my own life and especially in my Christian life. I think.. What should I do now? I personally tend to make God's will difficult or mystical. This is not what we should be doing! God's will is not so mysterious that we cannot find it! God's will is ours to know today!
God's will can be clearly found in the word of God:
2 Peter 3:9--"The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance."
1 Thessalonians 5:18--"In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."
1 Thessalonians 4:3--"For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:"
1 Peter 3:17--"For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing."
Mark 16:15--"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."
We can know God's will by what the Bible says! As one man said, "I do not need a voice, I need a verse!" Let the word of God guide your life! Read and let the Lord speak to you by His word! He does not hide His will from us, but it is clearly open to anyone who will simply seek it for their life in His word.
