Psalm 103:19 (NASB)
The Lord has established His throne in the heavens,
And His sovereignty rules over all.
What is God’s Will for your life?
A simply process to follow without getting into heavy theology is to understand how the Bible presents His Will. In summary format, you could classify His Will into three dimensions: Providential, Moral, and Personal.
Providential is God’s overall hand leading history as He desires. A good example is the prophecy and fulfillment of Israel and Jesus Christ. From the beginning of time God had specific plans which he foretold and worked out through various people, tribes, and nations.
God’s Moral Will is the basis of how we relate with one another. Overall, His Will is a byproduct of His character. The ten commandments and all the other principles explained throughout Scripture are the outward focus of God’s love. Jesus himself stated that to love God with our entire being and caring for our neighbor is the fulfillment of His love. As we practice His love, we are in His Will.
Lastly, God’s Will for you personally is the one we most likely mean when we seek His Will for our life. This is simply aligning yourself with the talents and gifts he empowered you with along with discovering your place in the Body of Christ. It is having a personal relationship with our Creator. It is knowing the Triune God and making Him known before others.
So, what is God’s Will for your life?
For most of us, God’s Will is not a global ministry but a personal crusade. God may choose you for a specific long-term mission, but for most of us they are short term assignments. It is to know Him and make Him and His ways known. As we live in His Presence, He shares His life with us and we share His life with others, we are in His Will.
So, when we come to a fork in life’s journey and we seek direction, most of us get stuck thinking there is only one solution or one direction that is God’s way and everything else is not. Eventually we may learn the fork in the road is to exercise the wisdom He has bestowed upon us. It is to seek wise counsel from those who may have been there before. It is to pray and seek insight from the Lord who knows your talents, skills, and the real opportunities before you.
When you realize your God is always with you no matter which road you choose, you can walk in confidence that the outcome will be OK. In hindsight it may not have been the best decision, but if you could have none differently, you would have. But based on the information you collected, you made the best choice you knew.
God’s Will is wider and deeper and more opportunistic then many of us allow. We place limited boundaries upon God who does the impossible and upon ourselves whose faith is yet maturing.
So, don’t limit yourself. God is for you. His Will for you is simply to know Him, make Him known to others, and build an intimate relationship with one another as you both mutually share your life with each other.
