There are places in the Bible where the will of God is clear and places where it isn’t. Either way, the Bible makes it clear that we as believers are to know the will of God.
Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is(Ephesians 5:17).
To know the will of God for your life start with what is clear.
For example, the following two scriptures clearly identify things that are God’s will: Having and communicating a thankful attitude toward God no matter what’s happening in your life and silencing foolishness with good actions instead of arguing.
Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people (1 Peter 2:15).
Although you can find many other scriptures to know the will of God, some things aren’t in the Bible. For example, who to marry, what house to buy, if you ought to go to college, and many more life decisions.
These lead us all back to James’ point.
When you don’t know the will of God there are four things you can do:
Submit to God — asking for his will
Pray for wisdom
Seek godly counsel
Trust the Holy Spirit
When you sincerely want to know the will of God, he will always help you find it.
Yes, it is God who is working in you. He helps you want to do what pleases him, and he gives you the power to do it (Philippians 2:13, ERV).
Especially in Marriage many people have missed it because they failed to know and choose the will of God For their lives…..THEY FAIL TO SEE BEYOND EMOTIONS.
It is true you love him/her
It is true you care for him/her
It is true she’s endowed with front and back
It is true you cherish her figure shape
It is true he’s cute and handsome
But the question is do you see beyond that?
Most of relationship nowadays are based on emotions. Truly, humanity is an embodiment of emotions because our emotions is God given ability. It’s also needed in a relationship but hear me, a relationship build on erotic love alone can never last. If all you see is emotional love, you need to give it time.
Relationship is not all about emotional feelings, you need to see beyond it. Most problems faced in marriage today was caused from the beginning, some people rush into marriage without seeing beyond.
Dear brother and Sisters, what do you see? Have you ever asked yourself a lot of questions before embarking on this journey?
is it only emotions driving you?
Are you sure you will still hold unto your spouse when unexpected challenges arise?
If she lost her figure shape, will you still cherish her?
If there is delay in Child bearing, will you not cheat?
If what is driving you crazy is cute face and handsomeness, chill my sister. You need to see more
Brothers if it’s her catwalk, as well as her back and front is all what is making you to propose to her. There is fire on the mountain, you need to see more……You need to see His will
Can this person go along with you forever and ever in this journey till death do you apart?
Can this person fulfill purpose together with you?
Can this guy accept the way you are and bring out the best of you?
Can He become one with you?
Can She stand in gap for you during tough and rough time times?
Think… just think and make sure you get accurate answers..
If you are already in relationship, it’s not too late to put things into order now. Look at the future, you need to see beyond emotions. Singles, see beyond before you propose or accept the proposal……seek to know His will.
God Bless you
