What is God’s Will

road-nature-lines-country

Many people ask me what God’s will is and they find themselves confused about what God wants for them in their lives. We need to break it down to the basics and go to scripture and apply what Jesus wants us to be. If you want to understand God’s will please read the words of Jesus and below in three points I identify what He desires from us:
Become God’s children
Become Disciples
Become Disciple Makers
It is easy to limit the three points to Church or Christian activities, and that certainly wouldn’t be God’s will for your life because God’s will is centred in His Kingdom. Whatever you are meant to do in your life whether career, student, family or ministry you are called to be His child, disciple and disciple-maker and this should never change. Within this, we have a unique identity which propels us to into having a vision and purpose for our lives which are fruits of the three points mentioned.
The next three points highlight how you can tell if you are in God’s will:
Living in the Supernatural
Living for God and His purpose
Living in obedience to His Word
These points are difficult to execute on a regular basis, but they are the benchmarks for God’s will in your life.

Disciples do the will of the Father

God’s will is much spoken about as it should be and plenty of us including those who feature in God’s Word have managed to make a mess of it at some point in time. Disobedience seems to be the root of not allowing God to fulfil His will or purpose in our lives, but we are incredibly thankful to God for His grace and mercy because as we regularly divert from His route, He has already found a way back to His plan and purpose. Many never get back to the road because they find the path too difficult or they struggle with obedience, then there are others who God carves a new course out for which is an amazing example of God’s tender love for His creation. So why do so many live unfulfilled lives?

The simple answer is that believers tend to see God as a genie or a grandfather in the sky. That’s why the atheists are busy laughing and calling God a fairy but if we were busy seeing God for who He is (No man has ever seen Him) then there is a chance that we will see the genuine fulfilment of His will on earth. Below I look at what believers do:

Expect monthly handouts – Like the UN World Food Programme
Expecting instant miracles – Like Maggi Noodles
Expecting blessings to land on their laps – Like babies needing their daily feed

God can do any of the above but they are extremely rare, and they aren’t ever part of a daily lifestyle that we should be living in Christ because I never saw the disciples live like it. Below I look at what disciples do:

They hear God – Relationship
They are obedient to God – Purpose and Desire
They are guided by His Word – He becomes a light to our feet
They overcome expected challenges on the road marked out – Understand spiritual warfare

This is how you can do the will of the Father, and if you want that tight, family-like relationship with God, then you must live like this all the time. Jesus told us in His Word that whoever does the will of The Father is a family member to Him. Your path isn’t meant to be easy, and there rarely is a free ride but if you want to expect then expect the impossible God’s way. God won’t move outside His Word so if you’re expectation isn’t found in His Word then you will never be able to see His will let alone fulfil it.

The blind lead the blind, and it is now time to open your eyes.
