How to know the Will of God?

 

My Shepherd’s voice was resounding in my ears telling me,” Yes, You are going to work” . That VOICE  do not lead us astray or put us to shame.-The answer was RESOUNDING YESYes I am going to work. That was finalized.

The Devil cheat some people as it did with Eve and Adam,  telling them that their own will was the voice of God. How to distinguish such voices?

Many people say that, “God told me to do this and that”. Though it was not from God, but their own wish and will.  We can recognise those people, by observing the end result of their prayer and guidance they spoke about is, nothing but of self glory; it is not based upon the word of God, but upon their own intuition, and insight and the result of such claim brings shame and utter humiliation and financial bankruptcy, and fear and confusion in lives of those who seek such guidance from other such people.

The problem to these seekers was that, its very difficult for them to yield to God in utter submission, of their own will  its very difficult for them to take time to pray; it’s very difficult to them because they are oppressed by their own efforts , time and energy, and money they already spent for the said project; its very difficult for them to come out of the ditch they were in,  because they are influenced tremendously by the impressions of other good friends, or society they live.

They just can not pray fearing, if ” I pray, and suppose God tells me not to go further in this venture, what will happen? ” So they think better not to seek “His will” rather than take a step back, if God tells them to retreat back, they take further steps forward. They do not like to take up any other advice from any one even from His holy Scriptures. Therefore they go forward with their already set up solutions, or already materialised plans.

The good example is Judas, who sold Christ for 30 silver coins, when he realized that his greed overcame him though he knew that Christ was sinless , instead of going to the Tree (CROSS) where He was hanging  to ask His forgiveness, Judas went to a ‘TREE’ to be hanged by himself and fell upside down while his bowls were spilled out, by his act of suicide.  Acts 1: 18″ …. falling headlong, he burst open into  the middle and all his entrails gushed out.”                                                                                                                                In this way people do not like to find solution from Him but seek their own as they like and waste their lives. Thus many prefer to go further in their chosen path and face shame, humiliation ultimately.

Sometimes our faith seeks only the “second best” after much waste of life. Instead of seeking “His best” in the first place. The sovereign God sometimes shows His abundant mercy upon us, as He had shown in case of Jonah the runaway prophet of God.

Some of us, do right thing only after committing wrong thing first;  this only wastes precious life, years and brings utter confusion in life. It’s always better to seek His will even before doing anything in life.                                                                                 Youth should be very much aware of His will in case of vocation they choose, and friendships they choose,  life partner they choose. This saves them much from humiliation.

Recently one woman advised me to do the will of God in a certain project I am pondering to take up. She said, ‘”Mam you even can scatter chits and pick one as a lottery, we recently did the same in the case of my daughter studies. ”

These people are greedy people, they want to follow Mrs Jones, they want everything be done by hook or crook, they spread the chits, and pick one, it’s almost like asking witch to find the best for them. As a result, that girl brought great shame to the family when she was sent for higher studies beyond her capacity.

–Of course we cannot mock God, or imitate the godliness. We always should be alert by not falling into deception of such ungodly advice. Remember these people also claim that they believe Bible and show some verse out of context. I heard a story, like this, One fellow wanted to do the Will of God in short cut method like this witchy woman who wants to take chits to decide the answer to the questions of life.  So he used Bible to know the will of God in certain matter, like ‘what God wants him to do’- and prayed a minute and sincerely opened the Bible, he got a verse there, “Then Judas threw the silver coins down in the Temple and went out and hanged himself”  Matthew 27:5  Seeing that verse, he was shocked and he did not like it, so he closed the Bible and again prayed a minute and again he opened the Bible as if it is a magic book, this time he got a verse from Scriptures like this: “Then Jesus said,”Yes, now go and do the same ” Luke 10:37.  that man was utterly devastated, confused, and was afraid.

The Devil knew how to cheat the people with the scriptures, it came to Eve, talking about the TRUTH, as it knew what is Truth, it came to our Lord Jesus Christ, with three scriptures from Bible, only who love to do the will of God with all their heart, can discern whether it is God’s voice or Devil’s voice.
