If You Want to Know God’s Will, Just Open Your Bible

Most of God’s will is already revealed. The principles are there! When you open your Bible, God opens his mouth and starts talking. Are you waiting for God to write his will in the sky? Why would he need to do that when he’s already written it in a book? Open the Bible daily, and see what God says.

Stop listening for a voice, and start looking for a verse.

“God’s Word warns us of danger and directs us to hidden treasure. Otherwise how will we find our way? Or know when we play the fool?” (Psalm 19:11-12 The Message).

God will teach you his principles. Then, when you’re looking for guidance, you can see if your circumstances or your emotions line up with God’s Word. The Bible will confirm God’s will.

And keep this in mind: God expects you to obey what you already know before he shows you something new. So if God has already told you want he expects you to do and you haven’t done it yet, don’t expect him to show you the next step. He’s waiting for you to take the first step. 

I’ve asked you before to practice meditating on God’s Word and that you could use Psalm 23 to start. To meditate on God’s Word means to think deeply and focus on God’s Word for a period of time. First, read the passage slowly, perhaps out loud a few times, placing emphasis on different words or phrases. Second, reflect on the truth of the text. Third, respond to God in light of what you’ve just read—this may be quietly or out loud. Fourth, rest in the Word of God, listening for what God has to say through the Scripture.

You only have to open your Bible to know what God’s will for your life is. Then, you have to spend time reading and studying it so it can transform your heart and mind.
