Knowing The Will Of God


"

The first step in knowing the will of God is the surrender principle. It’s an insult to tell God, “I want to know Your will, but I’m not willing to do Your will.” Couched in a passage about “serving our masters” is the phrase “the will of God” See this principle in Ephesians 6:5-8. A portion of that passage reads, “…in sincerity of heart, as to Christ; not with eye-service, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men….”

Another principle in knowing the will of God is the Scripture principle. Jesus said, “If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”(John 15:7) First surrender: “You abide in Me,” then Scripture: “My words abide in you.”

Do you want to know God’s will? Then here’s your test: How much time do you spend in God’s Word? Do you think God really believes you when you say “I want to know the will of God,” but you don’t read the one book above all books that God has specifically written to show you His will, to reveal His will to you, to unfold His will to you? Romans 12:2 tells us, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
