What is the will of God? This is a question that has been asked by people throughout history. Unfortunately, there is no easy answer. The Bible does give us some clues as to what the will of God is. However, it can be difficult to determine exactly what God wants for us. Let’s explore the will of God and discuss how you can go about finding out what it is. We will also look at some examples from the Bible to see how people have obeyed or disobeyed it.
What is the Will of God?
The Bible tells us that the will of God is His plan for our lives. It is what He wants us to do and how He wants us to live. In Romans 12:02, we are told “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind”. This verse tells us that we should not try to figure out God’s will by looking at the world around us. Instead, we should look to the Bible for guidance.
The Bible also tells us that the will of God is often revealed through His servants. In Isaiah 55:09, we are told “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts”. This verse tells us that God’s will is often beyond our understanding, but we can trust that it is always good. In James 01:17, we are told “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows”. This verse tells us that God is always good and that He loves to give us good gifts.
So how do we find out what the will of God is for our lives? The best way to find out is by studying the Bible. As you read, ask God to show you His will for your life. Be patient and trust that God will guide you. You may also want to pray for guidance and ask others for advice. If you are feeling lost, don’t be afraid to ask God to direct your steps. He loves us and wants us to live according to His plan for our lives.
Bible Stories About the Will of God
The Bible is full of stories of people who obeyed or disobeyed the will of God. Let’s look at a few examples from the Bible to see how people have responded to God’s guidance.
In Abraham’s story, we see that he was willing to obey the will of God even if it meant sacrificing his own son. In Genesis 22:02, we are told “Then God said, ‘Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will tell you about.'” Abraham was willing to do whatever God asked him to do, even if it was difficult.
In Moses’ story, we see that he was willing to obey the will of God even if it meant disobeying Pharaoh. In Exodus 05:01, we are told “But Pharaoh said, ‘Who is the Lord that I should obey him and let Israel go? I do not know the Lord and I will not let Israel go.'” Moses knew that God’s plan was better than Pharaoh’s plan, and he was willing to disobey Pharaoh in order to obey God.
In Esther’s story, we see that she was willing to risk her own life in order to obey the will of God. In Esther 04:16, we are told “Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my attendants will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king even if it means being killed”.
In each of these stories, people were willing to obey the will of God even if it was difficult. They trusted that God’s plan was better than anything they could come up with on their own. If you are willing to obey the will of God, He will guide you every step of the way. Trust in Him and be willing to do whatever He asks you to do. He will never lead you astray.
