How Can I Find God’s Will?

Ephesians 5:15–17 (NKJV)

15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.


WHAT IS THE WILL OF GOD?

It is a sense of understanding.
It is an awareness of God’s guidance.

 
WORDS THAT AID IN THE DISCOVERY OF GOD’S WILL:

Hope - Jeremiah 29:11 
Calling - Romans 8:28 
Confidence - Hebrews 11:6 

 
REQUIREMENTS FOR KNOWING GOD’S WILL:

A relationship with Christ
A willingness to obey Christ


Romans 8:32 (NKJV) He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

 

UNDERSTANDING GOD’S WILL:

Seek guidance from the Word of God.

Romans 12:1 (NKJV) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.

 
Pray until you hear from heaven.

2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV) if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

Listen to other Christians.

1 Timothy 4:14 (NKJV) Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership.

 
Wait patiently for God’s answer.

 Psalm 37:34 (NKJV) Wait on the LORD, And keep His way, And He shall exalt you to inherit the land; When the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.
