Understand God's Will

Do you know the Lord's will for your life? God's revealed will for you is recorded in the Bible. He may not tell you all you want to know, but he certainly informs you of all you need to know, to live a life pleasing to God. "Therefore be not unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is" (Ephesians 5:17).

Don't worry about what you don't know concerning God's will. Focus on what you do know. When you are doing the word of God, you are doing the will of God. Only God can enable you and provide opportunites for you to do his will.

Read the Bible to understand God's will. God does have a plan for your life. It is revealed in the Bible. The same Holy Spirit, who inspired the Bible, works in you to know and do God's good will. He guides you into all truth that you may understand God's will.

"Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is, his good, pleasing and perfect will" (Romans 12:2, NIV).
