God’s will is a place of safety. When we walk in the will of God, we find safety. When we live outside of God’s will, we forfeit His protection. We must regularly ask God to show us what His will is and lead us in it. We must ask Him to speak to our heart so He can tell us.
Trouble is a part of life. Having fulfillment and peace in the midst of trouble is what living in God’s will is all about. There is great confidence in knowing that you are walking in the will of God and doing what He wants you to do. When you are sure of that, you can better deal with what life brings you.
Don’t think that trouble in your life means you are out of God’s will. God uses the trouble you have to perfect you. There is a big difference between being out of God’s will and being pruned or tested by God. Both are uncomfortable, but one leads to life and the other doesn’t. In one you will have peace, no matter how uncomfortable it gets. In the other, you won’t.
Lord, I pray You will fill me with the “knowledge of Your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding”. Help me to walk in a worthy manner, fully pleasing to You, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of Your ways. Guide my every step, Lord. Lead me “in Your righteousness” and make Your way straight before my face”. As I draw close and walk in intimate relationship with you each day, I pray Your will gets me where I need to go.
In Jesus name I pray
We should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head-Christ-from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
Ephesians 4: 14-16
Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” Whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.
