How do you as a believer know that you are
living in Godís will?
Are you in the will of God?
Are you in the right job?
Are you fellowshipping in the
right body of believers?
Are you married to the right
What should I start first or
leave to last?
These are some everyday
questions that come our way as believers. We live day by day not knowing if
what we are about is in keeping with Godís will. TTGM will attempt to
answer this question by the Word of God and by it alone.
The first question is what is Godís will?
Godís will is what He asks us to do. What does God request?
(John 14:15 [KJV])
If ye love me, keep
Yeshua (Jesus) was quoting from here; referring to the
commandments of the Torah. Read
here for more about His commandments.
(Exod 20:6 [KJV])
And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep
Godís will is exactly what He has requested. To be in Godís
will if we love Him is to obey His commandments. When we live outside of
His commandments, we are no longer in His will.
Okay, if I stay in His will by obeying His commandments how
do I know what He wants me to do, for example,
which job to apply for, whom to marry, what should I study etc?
God will place what you need to do in your heart, but you
must delight yourself in Him. Note the scripture says that He (God) will
place the desire in you.
(Ps 37:4 [KJV])
Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of
If you delight yourself in God, He (God) will give you the
desire in your heart and you will know what you should do in your life.
Okay, how then do I delight myself in the Lord so that I can
get the right desires?
We will let scripture answer this question.
(Ps 1:2 [KJV])
But his delight is in
the law of the LORD; and in his
law doth he meditate day and night.
(Ps 40:8 [KJV])
I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.
(Ps 119:70 [KJV])
Their heart is as fat as grease;
but I delight in thy law.
(Ps 119:77 [KJV])
Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for thy law is my delight.
(Ps 119:174 [KJV])
I have longed for thy salvation, O LORD; and thy law is my delight.
(Rom 7:22 [KJV])
For I delight in the law of
God after the inward man:
You would notice a pattern between delight and law. What is
the law but a series of commandments that our Lord has asked us to obey. When we joyfully obey God, with no
feeling of remorse but just happy to do His will, our Lord will place the desires in us to know what we must
IMPORTANT: In everything we do, we must
study to know how God works. And as we gain knowledge about how God works
in our lives, He is better able to guide us towards His perfect will.
We must study to be approved by God.
(2Tim 2:15 [KJV])
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of
If we do not increase in knowledge as His people, we can be
(Hos 4:6 [KJV])
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected
knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me:
seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy
NOW A HARD QUESTION:
If we are living in His commandments, delighting ourselves
in the Lord and we do something that He has placed in our heart as a
desire. Then it falls apart, what does this mean?
Again, we answer from the book.
(1Thess 5:18 [KJV])
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
It is also important to know that if you are in the Lord
good and bad things will happen in your life. Again the bad things (eg. death,
loss of job, sickness) will come because the God of creation has a purpose.
As long as you are in the Lord it will be worked out for the good. It is
not about you or TTGM, it is about the big
picture. GOD IS IN TOTAL CONTROL OF
(Rom 8:28 [KJV])
And we know that ALL
things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are
the called according to his purpose.
Be Blessed as His Spirit helps you to understand His word..
