How Can I Know God's Will?


Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.     Romans 12: 2

‘Good’ means that His will is righteous. It never contradicts His Word, but gives a loud, resounding YES to all that God is.

‘Pleasing’ promises that His will brings us both peace and joy. Not the peace and joy like the world describes it, but the kind that only God could give. It’s peace and joy in Him.

‘Perfect’ signifies the outside factors surrounding His will. His will is always in His perfect timing, around the best circumstances, and in agreement with His people.

There’s no denying it, God has a will for our lives. He was the One who created us, He knows the purpose of our existence, and therefore orchestrates the events in our lives in order to fulfil it. But many times when we wind up in a crossroads of decisions, we get stuck. We stop and wonder what His will is. Below are a set of statements that also allude to God’s Will, in order for you to discern your life better:

1. God’s Will is envisioned even before we were born. He saw the days we would live, even while we haven't lived them out yet.



My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.  Psalm 139: 15-16

How does this change the way you view your life?



2. Though we may not understand it at times, God’s will for us is always for our good. We just need to let God be God, while we trust in His will for us.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.     Jeremiah 29: 11

How does this change the way you react to bad news, problems, and unfortunate situations?



3. We need the Holy Spirit in order to know what the will of God is.

And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.    Romans 8 : 27

What is one practice you can commit to doing in order to be more sensitive to the Holy Spirit?



Let’s Pray.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for breathing us into existence and for continuing to mold us as Your sons and daughters. We repent for the times when life got confusing, and we ended up getting derailed by present circumstances instead of focusing on You.

Lord, we understand now that we are all Your craftsmanship. May You give us the grace to just trust in Your good, pleasing, and perfect will that is uniquely made for each and every one of us.

May we choose to simply walk into Your Will and rest in You, instead of trying so hard to prove something of our lives. We are confident that all our needs will be met, we simply have to seek You and Your Kingdom first.

Lead us in Your Spirit Lord as we go about our daily lives. May we be sensitive to Your guidance, as we know that Your will for us is always for a hope-filled future. Lastly, may we embrace any discipline You will give to us, as it is said in Your Word that You discipline those you love.

All this we ask in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

I asked God why is that when I am walking with him everything is going to be more conflicated different for what i expected. Though I know him but i don't know why this things happened on me.

My Comments Policy

While my site offers visitors the ability to converse, I have a few ground rules so that our conversations will remain civil and courteous.

1. You must register in order to leave a comment. I don’t entertain pseudo, anonymous or bogus individuals. This site is my home (it has a Home Page, get it). I don’t let strangers who don’t introduce themselves into my home.

2. I love questions. I love them because a lot of times they are similar to someone else’s questions and can even trigger other questions from others. Questions also keep us all sharp. This is also why I respond to them as best as I can and at the soonest possible time. I believe that group answering benefits more people than private email exchanges.

3. We don’t have to agree. Debates are welcome. However, whether it is with me or any other visitors of my site, my rule is this: disagree if you must but keep things civil. That’s just how I run my home, and you are a visitor here. No shouting; I have seen it done in writing. No cursing and no insulting.

4. I reserve the right to delete your comments. Like I said, this is my home. I do not have an obligation to publish your comments. As a human being, you may enjoy the freedom to express your opinions on your own site but not on mine. To be specific, I will delete your comments if you post content that is in my sole opinion: (a) snarky; (b) off-topic; (c) libelous, defamatory, abusive, harassing, threatening, profane, pornographic, offensive, false, misleading, or which otherwise violates or encourages others to violate my sense of decorum, civility or any law, including intellectual property laws; or (d) “spam,” i.e. an attempt to advertise, solicit, or otherwise promote goods and services. You may, however, post a link to your site or your most recent blog entry.

5. You retain ownership of your comments. I do not own them and I expressly disclaim any and all liability that may result from them. By commenting on my site, you agree that you retain all ownership rights in what you post here and that you will relieve me from any and all liability that may result from those posts.
