God’s will

I know I have been giving a lot of scripture references. Sometimes, I just feel impressed by God to do such. I could say a thousand words on my own (sometimes I do 😀 ) and none would compare to one word from God. This is our hope, our foundation, our freedom, and the very air we breathe. Truly, like the Third Day song says, ‘everything else will fade away but what will remain are Your words!’

The Bible says, without faith it is impossible to please God. To understand the will of God, we have to believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). We need to know what is not God’s will as well.

2 Peter 3:9 NASB

The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.

He sent His Son to save us from our sins. He didn’t come to condemn us, but to save us.  (John 3:16-17) If you are interested in knowing what exactly is the will of God, look at His word with me. Upon opening the scriptures we can see what the will of God is for our lives. Let Him speak to you with the following scriptures.

Bible verses on the will of God:

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NASB

16 Rejoice always; 17 pray without ceasing; 18 in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 4:3-6 NASB

 For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality; 4 that each of you know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, 5 not in lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God; 6 and that no man transgress and defraud his brother in the matter because the Lord is the avenger in all these things, just as we also told you before and solemnly warned you.

Hebrews 13:20-21 NASB

 Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord, 21 equip you in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

1 Peter 2:13-15 NASB

13 Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority, 14 or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and the praise of those who do right. 15 For such is the will of God that by doing right you may silence the ignorance of foolish men.

Ephesians 5:15-21 NASB

15 Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, 16 making the most of your time, because the days are evil. 17 So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. 18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; 20 always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father; 21 and be subject to one another in the fear of Christ.

Pray with me please,

Father,

 You are Lord of all creation, Help us to keep our eyes fixed on You, Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. Thank You for Your word which instructs us in all righteousness. May we all adhere to Your word. Let it be applied to our lives, so that every step we take would be a perfect representation of Your great love. May we never be the same again, but be drawn into a newer and fuller relationship with You. We are bought with a price. Let us honor You with our bodies. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

We are instructed to bear one another’s burdens (Galatians 6:2) so if there are any prayer requests feel free to leave them in the comment section. I would be honored to pray with you. If it is more private you can always contact me via email at luckd61@yahoo.com I check that every day. Blessings to you all, till we meet again, maybe tomorrow, if the Lord is willing. Peace.

  1. Ah yes, these verses spoke loud & clear to me, “eful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, 16 making the most of your time, because the days are evil. “ Boy howdy, are they ever!! And we have some pretty foolish “leaders” out there in our USA making unfounded, unscientific, ungodly statements! Tuning in to God’s Word and maintaining a steady path of Hope in Christ and His promises -His life’s example – is more important in these precarious days than ever before in my 80 years!!

    1. Yes and amen! God’s way is always the best way. I was wondering about all of the scripture, but as I see now it is very crucial now more than ever to know and speak His word. There is power, power wonder working power…..♡ Sending love to you Jan. ♡

    1. I am so thankful God used me in such a mighty way. To lift the spirit of one of His soldiers is beyond amazing to me. Certainly our God reigns and He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. God bless you as you continue to be His light. It isn’t always easy brother, but the reward is so worth it. Always give yourself time to rest in His presence. He, being the Way, the Truth and the Life will give you His power from on high. You are His blessed child and He loves you. Thanks so much for that link. I will read and comment later today. Just wanted to say thank you and encourage you before I even started my day. Breathe Him in and remember He is with you fighting your battles. No weapon formed against you will prosper and every tongue that accuses you will be condemned. Isaiah 54:17. God bless you and protect you and keep you in the shelter of His arms. I am praying for you. Your sister in Christ, Donna.

      1. Hey, I just wanted to say in Mark 6:4 Jesus told them “a prophet is honored everywhere except in his hometown and among his relatives and his own family.” I just want you to be encouraged. I hear the Lord speaking through you. I believe He is using you for a great and mighty work. Sometimes our faith gets tested and we just need to stay strong in Him. Revelation 3:21 says He will let the ones who overcome sit with Him on the throne. We are more than overcomers through Christ who loves us. We are children of the most high God. Don’t believe the lies of the enemy and please focus on the truth. His word is truth. God strengthen you brother.

      2. Thank you Donna, your comment is much appreciated… I am finding the more closer I walk with Jesus the more the devil tries to be sneaky with his attacks… I heard a saying a bunch of times in music videos “New Levels from God brings new levels of devils to deal with”

        So, my point is if the devil feels he must be sneaky to try and catch me off guard then the devil must also be seeing the promotions spiritually that God has been completing in the background.

        In the past I was guilty of getting ahead of myself and not waiting for God’s timing and that lead me into a sinful situation before God where I lost interest posting content to promote God in others as an investment unto others…

        As of the last few days God has blessed me with being able to see how Soulja of Hope website content is blessing others and that in returned motivated me to push harder for God to see more great things that God can do… Because it is not about me in the end it is about being a vessel for God to complete his mighty work. I so, had lack of care in the past wanting to be a willing vessel for God to promote others…

        I was measuring what I thought success looked like and back then it was measured by many stat factors of the website and now I can care less about that because I rather follow God’s direction so I can say to God when I get to Heaven I was a willing vessel and my hopes are I helped many individuals become encouraged to become God Driven and Kingdom Minded like you asked me to complete here on earth for you Lord and my hopes are the celebration party will become huge in Heaven because I willy invested in souls and no longer back into myself.

        I say this because God point blank called me out back then because I was selfish… many people I know are seeing change in me and quite a few of them either don’t believe the change is real or flat out don’t like the change… some are receptive towards the changes I am going through because of the word of God changing me…

        Thank you again Donna, your encouraging comments lately have helped me in many ways. 😊

      3. Please don’t worry about the levels of devil’s. Because the very God of our existence, the One who created us, is watching over you and holding you with His righteous right hand. As our Lord told the disciples don’t focus on demons you can cast out but rejoice that your name is written in the lamb’s book of life. At the mention of Jesus name demons run and flee. No matter how powerful they are Jesus is more powerful.
        Speak to any demon and tell it to leave in Jesus name. Have you seen the John Waller video called Our God Reigns Here? It is the first video I have seen on spiritual warfare. Wonder why? I will post link to it at bottom of this.
        Don’t look at the past. Fix your eyes on the present. Jesus said what man can add anything to his life by worrying? Also that he cares for the birds of the air…not one falls that He is not aware of it…how much more valuable you are than one of those? Those are His words.
        Yes always follow Him and He will guide you. Trust that. I am glad you let go of measuring. God and Heaven driven AMEN! Right, and no longer look back. You have all the right words, bow just ask God to apply them. I believe fear and worry are 2 big bully type demons. Command them to leave in Jesus name. Then ask God to completely fill you with His Spirit. That’s one thing if the Lord is willing I will write a blog on. I feel His children are going out to the battlefield without proper shield and sword, sandals, breastplate, and helmet. Knowledge is power.
        Anyways, God bless you brother. It is good to have fellowship with you. Stay strong. The enemy is roaring, but greater is He who is in you. Sincerely your sister in Christ, Donna.

      4. Yes, Exactly very well said! I agree we need to place focus on God over the devil and our problems… I sure got caught off guard because I got too relaxed with the armor of God… As I was spending time with God yesterday God told me that so many new believers are coming forth and don’t know or understand the aspect of God’s armor…

        Donna, I encourage you to write the blog post you feel upon your heart… God will surely bless the readers with the knowledge you feel called to share.

        In the announcement I posted the sneak peek video of Bryann Trejo called prophecy…. I asked God before I went to bed what aspect to write about that video and God said write about the aspect of standing strong but only when the armor of God is completely utilized because if not then the devil will devour.

        I can surely relate to that aspect because when I was attacked I didn’t see it coming and it messed me up and God showed me last night if I was wearing the armor of God fully I would have remained unaffected but because I became relaxed with wearing God’s armor the words of the attackers were able to drop a seed of doubt… That doubt was like a broken record on repeat with the thought you have abandon your calling from God before what will stop you from doing it again?

        Purely the answer is my focus must remain on God at all times and I must be vigilant and alert while wearing the armor of God. There is no away around that aspect as a believer, then this way as a believer I will grow stronger in the Lord and abandoning the post I was called forth to will not become abandoned again…

        Thank you Donna for the insight you shared I really appreciate it, because God has surely used that insight to strengthen and guide me… For certain others reading your comment will also be able to draw inspiration and insight to grow closer to Jesus Christ.

        Sincerely
        Your Brother in Christ
        Mike
