1). What is the first step should we take in accepting God’s will?
Matthew 21:32 tells us to repent; we must repent then believe.
2). Name some Biblical Principles concerning God’s will.
I Thessalonians 5:18
“In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
I Peter 2:13-15
“13 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;14 Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.15 For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:
I Thessalonians 4:3
“3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:”
“2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
3). If we are to know God’s will, how should we go about it?
As we seek God’s will, we should make sure what we are considering is not something the Bible forbids, ask God to reveal His will to us, and read His Word.
4). Fill in the blank (from this lesson)
If we are walking closely with the Lord and truly desiring His will for our lives, God will place His desires in our hearts. The key is to want God’s will, and not our own.
