Are you after God’s will or your own? That is the big question this month (& Aug) at SHCC. Join us for our Sunday Services to learn key principles for making godly choices in your life which will reward you with lasting peace & joy.
A great man once said: – “I have no will, but that of God.” Most Christians wish that they could say and live those words.
But in order to do that there are two pitfalls to avoid:
1. Firstly, the pitfall of our own wilfulness that tends to oppose God’s will
2. Secondly, the pitfall of not knowing God’s will.
The latter produces the question that, as a Pastor, I was asked more than any other question that’s possible to be imagined: “How can I know God’s will?” I am convinced that you have been faced with this question as I have been. The Bible is a fountain of abundant direction in knowing God’s will for your life.
ROMANS 12:1-2 – “Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer 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.”
Knowing God’s will for your life is a process, it won’t just happen overnight. But, how do I find the will of God for my life, you may ask?
Here are several things that must take place before you can hope to accurately discern God’s will for your life.
· You must realize that you can know God’s will
· It’s important to seek the will of God for your life
· You must first be convinced that God wants you to know His will
· God will make His will known to you.
And it comes down to applying Biblical principles to our everyday lives and trusting God for who He is and what He can do in every area of our lives.
