Knowing the Will of God – 9 Principles

KnowinKnowing the Will of Godg the will of God is something I had struggled with as a believer for quite awhile. Ever wonder what God’s will is for your life? Well, I know I have. I truly believe that God has a specific plan for each and every one of us. The problem is finding out what that is.

I found something in the Bible that is a great kickoff to heading down that road toward finding your calling as a believer in Christ, or maybe completing a task given by the Lord. I found these 9 principals several years ago in 1 Thessalonians 5.

14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feeble minded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. 15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. 16 Rejoice evermore. 17 Pray without ceasing. 18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

On the surface it sounds rather mundane or perhaps easy. But how often can you honestly say that you’ve rejoiced evermore? Or Have given thanks in EVERYTHING? Go through each and every one of these nine instructions and really rest your mind on it. Not that easy when you think about it.

And that’s why I brought it up in the first place… To provoke some thought concerning these things. They are God’s will in Christ Jesus concerning us. I believe the better we understand these principals and do these things while seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness (Matthew 6:33), It may enable God’s plan for our lives to take root and become manifest.

Either way, it does answer the question,’ What’s God’s will for me?’.

Think on it, pray on it, and thank God for it.

Knowing the will of God is right in the page, much like all other things that we are allowed to know about our Creator! Thanks for reading and Please don’t forget to share & comment!

  1. Thank-you Brian for this blog. I’m going to make a list of these things and tape on my bathroom mirror. It brought tears to my eyes because although I don’t hit the the mark on all of it, I used to be a nursing assistant for years and now I am a special education teacher. I knew that God brought me into service positions for a reason, (comforting the feeble minded) but seeing it in the word of God just gives me such peace that I am truly where I am suppose to be and I am doing His will concerning me. Truly, some days are better than others.
