Knowing God’s Will August 16, 2006

Posted by fajita in Christianity, emerging church/emergent, Philosophy/Religion, Post-restoration/Restoration Movement.

How do you know what God’s will is?

Does God micromanage every choice people make only allowing the illusion of choice?

Is there unbounded free will?

Is there limited free will?

How close is God and how far away is God?

How much of God is revealed in the Bible and how much is revealed in other ways?

What are those other ways?

Does God’s will work the same for everyone? (Moses got a burning bush with clear instruction)

If God did have a plan for your life, how would you (or have you) come to believe you know what it is?

How would you advise someone struggling with coming to know God’s desires or plans?

Where is God’s will when evil or sickness or disease wreak havoc in people’s live?

You know, that is an interesting question. But everyone interprets Gods signs in their own way. Some people pray…….and hear a song on the radio that touches their heart. That song compels them to do what they feel abides with God’s plan. Someone else receives a letter in the mail after they have been praying and praying. I think the key in both of those is to be searching for God’s will. Then when you think you get those answers, test it. Go to his word and see how it measures up. Make sure those choices are not based on your will, and emotion. God will speak clearly if you are still and listen.
