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,
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 email@example.com I check that every day. Blessings to you all, till we meet again, maybe tomorrow, if the Lord is willing. Peace.
