Each of us wants to know God’s will time and again for our lives. Three simple principles will help us to find divine guidance in our lives. When all three principles line up — we are on target to follow the will of God.
1 — First, God’s will must be biblical. God will never guide us to do anything contrary to His Word. Every step we take must be consistent with either the direct teaching of God’s Word or with the principles spelled out in God’s Word. (Psalm 12:6-7; Isaiah 40:8)
2 — Second, God will give us a peace in our heart. His indwelling Holy Spirit will confirm in our hearts & minds the path we should follow. (Isaiah 30:21; Philippians 4:7)
3 — Thirdly, the door will open. If it is God’s will, we do not need to force it open — it will open. Or it will close. Our goal is to find the door that God opens. (Revelation 3:7-8)
When all three of these principles line up, we will find the will of God. God will lead us according to His Word. We will have a peace and confidence in our hearts. And the door will open in His divine timing!
