How do you discern or know God’s will? Making decisions that have the potential to alter the rest of your life can be extremely difficult, and concerns about “missing God’s will for your life” makes decisions even more difficult.
- Who will we marry?
- What career will we pursue?
- Where will we live?
- God’s Eternal will.
Ephesians 3.11, “This was his eternal plan, which he carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord.” This is a plan God will carry out, regardless of what we think about it.
- God’s moral will.
Much of God’s will in scripture has to do with how we live our life, the right and wrong of our actions and attitudes. This aspect of his will is clearly given in the scriptures, and it’s a matter of obedience, not choice.
