KNOWING God's WILL!

I've had a number of individuals, over the course of the last few months ask me, "how did you know this was God's will for you?"


That got me thinking about this whole idea of knowing God's will.  There's a perception out there that discovering God's will is hard work.  You almost get the sense, from some, that God has hidden it from us and our job is to hunt for it much like our kids hunt for Easter Eggs or each other, in a game of hide and seek.  I think that's all wrong.  God longs for us to understand his will.  When we're in relationship discovering his will comes naturally.  It flows!  Truth is we'll never discover HIS will outside of relationship with Him.


Think with me about Paul on his missionary journey's. How does Paul ends up in Philippi?  How did he not end up in some other place?  I've come to understand that Paul knew where to go because he was already walking with Jesus.  Think about it for a moment.  If you're walking with someone who knows the way, you'll probably not get lost?  Or to put it another way, when you keep in step with the spirit, you discover yourself smack dab in the middle of God's will.


So you're looking for God's will in YOUR life?  "Draw near to God, and HE will draw near to you!"  
Seek HIS face - Get in his word - Join together with other believers.  
  Remember when you seek Him, He will be found. No doubts!
