Ways to Know God’s Will

 

Divine Guidance is one of the wonderful benefits of being a Christian.

Christians serve a God who is the Alpha and the Omega (A-Z)—the God who is, who was, and who is to come—who sees the beginning to the end. That is our God! He is a God of purpose, plan, destiny and He has a very definite will for our lives.

But it is our responsibility to SEEK the will of God. It’s very intentional.

Romans 12:2 says, “Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world, but let God transform you inwardly by a complete change of your mind. Then you will be able to know the will of God—what is good and is pleasing to him and is perfect.”[1]

Colossians 1:9-10 says, “We have not ceased to pray and make request for you, asking that you may be filled with the full, deep and clear knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom, in comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God and in understanding and discernment of spiritual things. We ask this so that you will live the kind of lives that prove you belong to the Lord. Then you will want to please Him in every way as you grow in producing every kind of good work.”

Naturally we assume that the two primary means by which Christians know the will of God are through the Word of God and by prayer. But in the next few blogs, I want to share eight other ways to know God’s will.
