Understanding the Will of God

The list below was compiled by a missionary in Panama, Bro. Jim Childress.... I thought it might be a blessing to those who are seeking the will of God in some matter this very day; or if not today, then sometime soon in the future!!!


Steps to Knowing and Conforming to the Will of God

1. Reject sin
2. Have a desire to know God's will.
3. Have a desire to continue the learning process.
4. Be willing to wait on the Lord.
5. Trust completely ... Prov. 3
6. Be yoked with Christ. Matt 11:29
7. Study and memorize Scripture.
8. Analyze surrounding situations and conditions.
9. Form a support group of counselors.
10. Do a written study of the situation, solution and alternatives.
11. Establish a prayer support group
12. Pay attention to the still small voice of the Holy Spirit when He speaks.
13. Practice self disciple with regards to I John 2:15-17
14. Seek the gift of discernment
15. Reject human secularism when dealing with spiritual values.
16. Pray for wisdom.
17. Respond in love that rejects fear. 1 John 4:18
