Knowing the Will of God - A.W. TozerOne of the problems most frequently encountered by serious-minded Christians is how to discover the will of God in a given situation. This is not a small matter. To countless thousands of Christians it is vitally important. Their peace of heart depends upon knowing that God is actually guiding them, and their failure to be sure that He is destroys their inward tranquility and fills them with uncertainty and fear. They must get help if they are to regain their confidence. Here is a modest effort to provide some help. First, it is absolutely essential that we be completely dedicated to Gods high honor and surrendered to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. God will not lead us except for His own glory and He cannot lead us if we resist His will. The shepherd cannot lead a stubborn sheep. The evil practice of using God must be abandoned. Instead of trying to employ God to achieve our ends we must submit ourselves joyously to God and let Him work through us to achieve His own ends - A.W. Tozer
The evil practice of using God must be abandoned. Instead of trying to employ God to achieve our ends we must submit ourselves joyously to God and let Him work through us to achieve His own ends.
The idea is not that we do work for God, but that we are so loyal to Him that He can do His work through us - "I reckon on you for extreme service, with no complaining on your part and no explanation on Mine." God wants to use us as He used His own Son. [i]18th Dec., My Utmost for His Highest ~ O. Chambers[/i]
The will of GOD is definite and determined.GOD'S will is definite in purpose, so we may seek His will and discover His purpose.His will is determined according to HisWord, which is His truth. When in doubt,we can always determine His will accordingto His truth. GOD desires for us to delightin His will, and prove that His will isacceptable, perfect, and right. His willis always our wisest choice.E. B. PUSEY
