#103 Seven Things About “The Will of God”
I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.
Count your way to wisdom in number one-hundred and three of this series, Seven Things About “The Will of God”.
How often have you heard a Christian say that they do not know the will of God for their life? It might surprise you to see what Paul had to say about this lack of knowledge. Paul calls this person “foolish”. Paul considers the Bible to be so clear on the will of God for your life that to miss it makes you foolish. Foolish in a sense of, devoid of wisdom or good sense or sound judgment. This is a serious consideration, especially when so many Christians are claiming to be searching for the will of God.
Eph 5:17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
Seven things about the “will of God”:
- You are called biblically foolish if you do not know “the will of God” for your life.
- The Holy Spirit intercedes for the saints to help you learn “the will of God”.
- You must not be conformed to this world to discern “the will of God”.
- You must be mature and fully assured in the word of God to know “the will of God”.
- You must cease to live in your passions to know “the will of God”.
- You must walk in obedience to be worthy of knowing “the will of God”
- You must desire in your heart to not only know, but to do “the will of God”.
Be knowledgeable, be discerning, be mature, and be in obedeience to know the will of God for your life. The joys of working for God cannot compare to the toil of this world.
