Knowing Godís Will

A young man facing the future and unsure of what the next year would bring, concluded, ďNobody knows what Godís will is.Ē Is he right? Does a lack of certainty about the future translate into not knowing Godís will?

The concept of knowing Godís will is often limited to discerning what specific situation we will be in at some future time. Although seeking Godís specific leading is part of it, another aspect that is just as vital is to follow the clearly defined elements of Godís will each and every day.

For instance, it is Godís will for us to be good citizens as a challenge to those opposed to Christ (1 Peter 2:15), to give God thanks no matter what (1 Thess. 5:18), to be sanctified sexually, avoiding immorality (1 Thess. 4:3), to live under the Holy Spiritís control (Eph. 5:18), to sing to Him (v.19), and to submit to other believers (v.21).

As we submit to God in these and other areas, we are more likely to live in what Romans 12:2 calls Godís ďgood and acceptable and perfect will.Ē Living with Godís smile of approval leads to His guidance for the future.

As we seek to know Godís will for the future, we must also act on what we already know now.





Knowing Godís will for the future
Comes when we follow today
What Heís revealed in the Scriptures
As His commands to obey. óSper





Love and obey the Lord every day, and He will unfold your future.
