GOD’S WILL, 10/13/19 (Best to print this one out and tape it to the Refrigerator Door.)
What is God’s Will for my life?” A question often get asked of God. Usually, this question is related to a specific situation that a person is going through. Situations like: “should I take this job?” Or “where should I go to college?” Or “should I consider marrying this person?”
When faced with life’s questions, it is important to remember that God’s Will for us is always found in His Word given to us…The Bible. Let’s take a look at some passages that reveal God’s Will for us here and now.
- To be saved. 2 Peter 3:9 – The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
- To be sanctified. 1 Thess. 4:3-4 – “For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor.
- To be serving. Ephesians 2:10 – “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”
- To be discovering and using His spiritual gifts. 1Peter 4:10 – “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
- To bear much fruit. John 15:8 – “By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.”
- To bring glory to His name. Isaiah 43:7 – “Everyone who is called by My name, Whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him.”
Let’s make sure we are seeking God’s Will for us by first hearing His Word to us. When we do that, we will find The Bible truly is a lamp unto our feet, and a light unto our path. (Psalm 119).
