To Know God's Will Concerning Any Issue

September 26, 2008

Jeremiah 33:3... "Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great things, which thou knowest not."

The only thing that can secure peace, joy and happiness for you amidst turbulence and vicissitudes of life is to seek to the will of God in all areas of your life and to follow it.

Psalm 25:12... "What man is he that feareth the Lord? Him shall he teach in the way he shall choose."

God desires to make his will known to man. Time and again people ask, "How can I know the will of God? God does not talk to me! I don't know what to do."

There are many Scriptures which show us that God sincerely wants to teach us the way we should go. God wants to patiently instruct us so we will not make mistakes. Psalm 32:8 says, "I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go: I will guide you with my eyes." Proverbs 3:5 commands us to "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths."

When we come to the lord without any idol in our hearts or preconceived ideas of what we want or how we want things to turn out, He will teach us how to choose the best. Be still in the presence of the lord and he will speak to you in a way you will understand. His will always aligns with His WORD.

As you pray the following 22 prayer points with an open mind, "... you will be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding" (Colossians 1:9).

NOTE: The issue you are placing before God for direction or guidance must be scriptural.
