How Do You Know What God's Will Is For Your Life?

by Brenda Farmer

June 20, 2016

 

COMPONENTS OF GOD’S WILL FOR HIS CHILDREN:  (taken from The Battle Plan for Prayer*)

  • GLORY – THAT GOD MAY BE GLORIFIED THROUGH JESUS CHRIST IN EVERYTHING. 

1  PETER 4:10,11  - 10 God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.

11 Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen.

  • KINGDOM- TO ADVANCE HIS KINGDOM.  MATT. 6:33 - .33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
  • LORDSHIP – GOD’S WILL IS FOR CHRIST TO BE LORD – TITUS 3:4-8
  • But—“When God our Savior revealed his kindness and love,
  • he saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit.
  • He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior.
  • Because of his grace he declared us righteous and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life.”
  • This is a trustworthy saying, and I want you to insist on these teachings so that all who trust in God will devote themselves to doing good. These teachings are good and beneficial for everyone.
  • LIVING A PURE SANTIFIED LIFE - 1 Thess 4:3 (NLT) - God’s will is for you to be holy, so stay away from all sexual sin.
  • WANTS US REFJOICING, PRAYING AND GRATEFUL IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES - 1 Thess 5:16-18 (NLT) - Always be joyful.17 Never stop praying.18 Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus
  • WANTS US MATURING IN THE FAITH - Heb 6:1-2 (NLT)1 So let us stop going over the basic teachings about Christ again and again. Let us go on instead and become mature in our understanding. Surely we don’t need to start again with the fundamental importance of repenting from evil deeds and placing our faith in God.
  • HE WANTS US PRODUCING FRUIT, SEASON AFTER SEASON - John 15:16 (NLT) -  16 You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name.
  • WANTS US IN CLOSE FELLOWSHIP WITH OTHER BELIEVERS - Phil 2:2 (NLT) 2 Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose
