I want to share a few principles from the Bible that will better enable you to discover, know, and walk in the will of God that He has for you. But first, you need to know that the will of God is not so much an itinerary as it is an attitude. Be willing to walk in the way that He wants you to…The good news is that God does not play hide-and-seek. He is more interested in revealing His will than you may be in knowing what His will is. But we often make hearing God’s voice and knowing His will too mystical…

God has given us a user’s manual for life called the Bible. It helps us to understand the will of God. Before we get into the specifics and try to discover His plan and purpose for our lives as individuals, let’s ask ourselves the question, Am I already doing what God has clearly told me to do in His Word?…Don’t let this world squeeze you into its mold. When the Bible speaks of the world, it is speaking of a culture that is largely hostile to God. Live the way that God wants you to live.

Let’s look at the first two commandments: 1) You shall have no other gods before Me 2) You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

Do you follow these? Have you read God’s written Will (the Bible) about the major decisions in your life (e.g. marriage, divorce, jobs, happiness, joy, being content, choosing friends, etc.)? Do you follow this or put your own wants and feelings above God’s Will? As you grow in your understanding of the Bible, it will be easier for you to hear the Holy Spirit guide you on other decisions in your life.

    We must realize Gods Will IS going to be done on earth as it is in heaven… When we walk in Gods will we allow Jesus to work through us and our lives are blessed and enriched beyond measure…Your spirit residing in your heart will guide you in living in Jesus in order to glorify our holy father God…Once you have seen and talked with Jesus, you will be able to connect with God and His will is revealed with a clarity that brings joy and peace, through Gods grace alone…

    Oh, how we’ve missed the whole point of the bible! This article leads to law, and law leads to death! The point of the law was to be a tutor to Christ. It is to show God’s righteousness, His perfection that we could never live up to and were never asked to try to live up to. He provided the sacrifice to redeem those who couldn’t redeem themselves. He looks only for faith in that sacrifice! He isn’t looking to see how we’re performing. His standard is perfection and nothing less. “Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ , and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.” Gal. 2:16 All we are to know is that we are wretched sinners in need of a Savior. We are baptized into His death, and there we must remain. “Stand fast in the liberty wherewi

  5. A Walk With God

    I don’t need, to walk in fear
    Troubled or upset, along life’s way
    I know, that my God Loves me
    He’s in control of all things, 24hours a day,

    And I’m, an individual
    God loves me, as myself and only me
    He created me, He cares for me
    He nurtures me, watch and see,

    His best, is what He offers
    And that’s, His hearts desire for me
    To Love Him and to love myself
    In peace and tranquility,

    And so, I’ll walk with God
    And I’m content, along the way
    Knowing that, I’m not perfect yet
    But God Loves me, anyway.
