Understanding the Will of God

The Will of God

Eph. 5:17

(Wisdom and Youth coexist in the Lord’s will)


  • How do I make Godly decisions?
  • How do I make the right decision?
  • How do I not make big mistakes?
  • How do I know if I am in the will of God?

God will reveal his will in four ways:

The Testimony of:

  • The Scripture
  • The Holy Spirit
  • The Brethren
  • The Circumstances

Before we study out these, we must first look at our part of the Lord’s will.

Romans 12:1-2 reveals two things that the Lord requires of us.

First: God wants your Reasonable Service

      Secondly: God wants your Mind Renewed

Reasonable Service

            God requires a sacrifice that is living, holy and acceptable unto God.

  1. I.        The Sacrifice of Your Person  Romans 12:1-2
    1. a.      Your Salvation – I Tim.2:3-6, II Peter 3:9
    2. b.      Your Surrender – I Peter 5:6-8, James 4:6-8, Romans 10:1-4

That’s Reasonable!

    1. a.      I Thes. 5:17 In everything

    1. a.      James 5:16 Availeth much
    2. b.      Luke 18:1 Don’t give up

  1. V.     The Sacrifice of  Your Purity   Ps. 51:17
    1. a.      Eph.5:26  How do you get pure?  The word of God.
