TOPIC: Knowing the will of God
TEXT: Luke 11:2
- God respects man’s will.The purpose of God’s will is to establish God’s kingdom.
- God’s will is for both believers and unbelievers.(1Tim 2:4). For believers is spiritual growth and unbelievers is that they may be saved.
Will of God can be in two forms:
- Written will: Written is situated in the bible.You can get the revealed will,if you don’t have the written.
- Revealed will: Through spiritual gifts (Joel 2:28) .It is for personal purpose, growth and daily activities .Revealed will established on spiritual gifts.Spiritual gifts communicate the revealed will of God.The foundation of the revealed will is the written will.
- Through audible and inner voice: Audible voice comes once a while.(Matt. 3:16) .Inner voice comes many ways, it may peace,burden in your heart .
How to understand God’s will ( ROMAN 14:17 ):
- JOY IN THE HOLY GHOST
If you are doing God’s will you will always be at peace.Anything outside God’s righteousness is not his will.Joy is of the spirit while happiness is for material things
