“Life is an uphill battle. But it’s our choice whether or not we make it up the mountain. We can choose to give up or keep climbing to see the view at the top. The view is almost always worth the climb.”-Alexis Wohler. God put this saying on my heart when I was going through […]
For example, if it is God’s will for someone to leave your life, no matter how hard you try, the person will continue to disappear from your life. You may think of it as a disaster and that it is your fault, at first, but in time you will become wiser and realize that God was and is protecting you from the poison of that person. Some people literally do bring poison to our lives. If you look at it rationally and realize that the person is doing you more harm than good, then you know it was God’s will and He is protecting your and your heart from more damage by getting that person out of your life.
Some other ways you can ultimately tell whether something in your life is God’s will or not, is if you find yourself having peace after a certain person goes out of your life, or when a situation finally comes to pass. Still other ways are through constant prayer and petition, as well as reading His word daily and studying what He has to say.
There are many Bible verses that talk about following God’s will. Some of these include:
John 7:17: “If anyone’s will is to do God’s will, he will know whether the teaching is from God or whether I am speaking on my own authority.” This verse means that we as believers can figure out whether someone’s teaching is directly from God or from their own mouths. We can tell if it is teaching from God because the words and the messages will resonate in us and spark a flame in our hearts and in our minds.
Romans 8: 27 says, “And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” This verse means that when we search our hearts for God and the Holy Spirit, He will help us understand what the mind of the Holy Spirit is able to do in our hearts, souls, minds, body and in our lives.
1 Peter 3:17 says, “For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God’s will, than for doing evil.” This verse speaks for itself saying, that is it always better to suffer while doing good for the Lord and for our fellow man, than for doing evil against the Lord or against our fellow man.
Prayer: Lord please help me to know what things in my life are your will and ordained by you. Help me to gain the discernment and give me eyes to see and ears to hear your will. Help me to do things in my life according to your will. Amen.
