Transcript

  • 1. How to know God’s will for your life? In 10 Steps
  • 2. About God’s Will God doesn’t want to lead you with a bridle like a horse or a mule that has to be reigned in. He wants to lead you intelligently by the Holy Spirit according to the word.
  • 3. 1. Be in harmony with God’s Word and Law • I delight to do thy will, thy law is within my heart. • Would God lead you into breaking His law? No • His work is to be a lamp unto your feet and a light unto your path.
  • 4. 2. Be willing to do God’s will • Jesus is your example. He came to do His Father’s will. • If you are willing God will show you. • You shouldn’t be planning your own life. You should be trying to do God’s will. • God’s will is must more beneficial than you own. • You ways lead to sorrow, death, and destruction.
  • 5. 3. Enthusiastic faithful prayer for guidance • Ask in faith, nothing wavering. • Effectual, enthusiastic prayer of the righteous benefits much. • You can have confidence that if you ask according to God’s will, He will hear you.
  • 6. 4. Do what lies nearest you first! • God has many things to tell us, but we can’t bear them now. Do what you can do and what you know to be correct, right now. Then he will show you what to do next. • In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path. • Be faithful in the least first and God will give you more. • If you don’t obey God in the small things how will you obey during the big test?
  • 7. 5. Which option will bring the most Glory to God? • Do ALL to the glory of God! Give none offence to either Jew or Gentile or to the Church. • That God in ALL things might be glorified! • Part of the last warning to the world contain these instructions “give glory to Him”. • This indicates that most of the world will not be giving glory to God at the end of time. • The decisions you make in your daily life indicate whose side you are on. • Don’t cause anyone to stumble. • Don’t hurt ever, the least of God’s children.
  • 8. 6. Seek Christian Advice • There is safety in a crowd of advisors. • Don’t follow the advisors of the ungodly. • Cursed is the man that puts his trust in man.
  • 9. 7. Listing to the voice of the Holy Spirit • Though you go through hardship and illness, God will talk to you. You will hear a voice behind you as you turn to the right or left. God will show you, “This is the way, walk ye in it!.” • That still small voice that makes you feel so uncomfortable is the Holy Spirit speaking to you. • God doesn’t speak to you in a earthquake or fire, but in a still small voice.
  • 10. 8. Humbly wait on the Lord • Those that overcome the beast and his mark have an identifying characteristic of patience. They keep God’s commandments (not man’s) and they humbly wait for Jesus. • Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him. • He cannot forget you, your problems or struggles! Trust Him! He thinks about you constantly!!! • He guides the humble.
  • 11. 9. Make and implement a decision • After you have gone though all these steps move forward in the Lord. Have courage the Lord is with you! • You have solely followed the Lord. He has kept you alive to do His will. Now go after it! Be like Joshua in the bible and say “Give me this mountain!”.
  • 12. God’s Wisdom! • • • • • Watch for the opened or closed doors. Don’t worry about what is on the other side of the door. Movie forward with your eyes on Jesus. Watching for his leading. Make sure that you are not violating his word as you move forward. God will open doors and break in pieces the gates to accomplish His will for your life. You cant count on it! All throughout the Bible you can see incident after incident of God’s will being accomplished. As you move forward watch Him remove the obstacles and remember that He often requires you to move first. Why? This tests and shows you the state of your Faith. It causes you to exercise your faith. It is important to have little tests now prior to the big crises? Absolutely!!! The people at the end of time who overcome the beast are described as having the faith of Jesus. What kind of faith did Jesus have in His heavenly father? The Greatest! I know thy words, behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shit it, for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
  • 13. God Guides You in Doing His Will • Has not God said He would give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him? and is not this spirit a real, true actual guide? • Some men seem afraid to take God at His word as though it would be presumption in them. They pray for the Lord to teach us and yet are afraid to credit the pledged word of God and believe we have been taught of Him. • So long as we come to our heavenly Father humble and with a spirit to be taught, willing and anxious to learn, why should we doubt God’s fulfilment of His own promise? You must not for a moment doubt Him and dishonour Him thereby. • When you have sought to know His will, your part in the operation with God is to believe that you will be led and guided and blessed in the doing of His will. • We may mistrust ourselves in case we misinterpret His teachings, but make even this a subject of prayer, and trust Him, still trust Him to the uttermost, that His Holy Spirit will lead you to interpret aright His plans and the working of His providence.
  • 14. “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.”
