#4849 – Spirit-led Will

Good morning people who go to God for the direction for your life.

Colossians 1:9 NIV For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives.

I want to know God’s will for my life and I want to do God’s will for my life. I’m sure you do as well.

In this verse, Paul is praying that the people in the church at Colossae are filled with the knowledge of God’s will. What a wonderful prayer!

But how is this discovered?

It’s not through planning, strategising, studying, nor in simply following our own desires and what we want to do. In fact, this can often get us off track and out of God’s will. Not because we are doing wrong things, but because we haven’t taken time to ask God what His pre-determined will is for our lives.

Paul tells us that the knowledge of God’s will is through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives. This is so clear and it is so empowering!

The Holy Spirit knows what Father created us to do. He loves to take from the Father’s heart and place into our heart the very mind and will of God. Oh how blessed we are to have the Spirit of God living in us and leading us!

So, if you want to know God’s will for your life, I encourage you to spend some time listening to the Holy Spirit as He reveals the wisdom from heaven to you.
