Have you been in a position where you are holding an appliance or a tool in your hands that you don’t know how to use but but you’ve been told that it will do the job.How frustrating it is, the tool is in your but you have no clue how to use it. Same way we live unnecessary frustrating lives because we do not know how to live our lives according to the owner’s manual.
Believers need to know what God wants from them, what He will do for them, and how He wants them to behave and conduct themselves, they need to know what the will of God is in all situation.
God has set His will for us in His word
Thank God He is not the author of confusion, He has written His will clearly in His word, and has given us the Holy Spirit to enable us to understand His word so we can do what He says. We are given directive by God to get understanding of His word. This privilege belongs to us because we have God’s nature, God’s DNA in us which give us the ability to understand His word and then do it.
But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 1 Corinthians 2:9-10
Take the time to study
Many times believers will say they don’t know what the will of God and then go off with that mindset thinking that it’s impossible to know what the will of God for their life, what they don’t know is that the will of God is already in their hands, probably somewhere gathering dust on their table or unused among many apps they have on their phone. We will have to take the time to look at what God has said in His word if we want to know His will and have His secrets revealed to us.
God is no respecter of persons. He wants to reveal His will to you.
I daresay He is far more willing than you to know His will and do it, but your part is the determinant factor in the whole process, which is to study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analysing and accurately dividing [rightly handling and skilfully teaching] the Word of Truth. 2 Timothy 2:15 Amplified Bible
When you take the time to study and meditate on His word daily, you will begin to see more of His dictates and instructions that He has specifically prepare for you. The strength in His word will be imparted into you to do those things that you see in His word, when you join your faith with His faith, and agree with Him about what He said in His word.
Let your heart be fixed on the word
You must let your heart and mind be fixed on the word and stay ready to capture anything that is not of faith in the truth that you see in God’s word, anything that smells of doubt, anything that looks like fear and cast it out of your mind.
Your heart must be fixed on the word at all times and you can do it because God says you can!
The devil will try to throw us off course from the word of God but you need to understand his intention to do so and stop Hm, many times you might not even feel like it but do it. The word of God says that we can cast down every imaginations and everything that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. We can cast out anything contrary to the word of God that tries to assail our minds and we will see clearly the will of God for our lives and the strength to do it.
