Knowing the Will of God

A young man facing the future and unsure of what the next year would bring, concluded, “Nobody knows what God’s will is.” Is he right? Does a lack of certainty about the future translate into not knowing God’s will?

The concept of knowing God’s will is often limited to discerning what specific situation we will be in at some future time. Although seeking God’s specific leading is part of it, another aspect that is just as vital is to follow the clearly defined elements of God’s will each and every day.

For instance, it is God’s will for us to be good citizens as a challenge to those opposed to Christ 1 Peter 2:15 “For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men” To give God thanks no matter what 1 Thess. 5:18 “In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you”, to be sanctified sexually, avoiding immorality 1 Thess. 4:3 “For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality”, to live under the Holy Spirit’s control Eph. 5:18 “And do not be drunk with wine, which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit”, to sing to Him Eph. 5:19 “Speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord”, and to submit to other believers Eph. 5:21 “Submitting to one another in the fear of God.”

As we submit to God in these and other areas, we are more likely to live in what Romans 12:2 “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is the good, acceptable, and perfect will of God.” Living with God’s smile of approval leads to His guidance for the future.
As we seek to know God’s will for the future, we must also act on what we already know now.

Knowing God’s will for the future
Comes when we follow today
What He’s revealed in the Scriptures
As His commands to obey
