There is a question that is pondered in hearts of believers. That question is, "What is God's will for my life?" That question has been asked many times, by those of us that really want to know the answer. We are going to look at 1 John 5:14-15 and bring out three points.
1. John says in 1 John 5:14, ".....this is the confidence....." We must understand that God wants us to walk in confidence that is in Him. He wanted that for mankind in the beginning. The definition of confidence is, "having an assurance in someone or something."
2. 1 John 5:14 also states, "....if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us." What is His will? How do we get to know His will for our lives? The answer is very simple. His will is knowing His word. When you start to understand His word, you start to understand the will that He has for your life. You will find yourself in His word. Praise God!!!!!
3. The last point is in 1 John 5:15, "....we know..." Knowing His will for you, is a great feeling, because you don't have to keep wondering, for God Himself is leading you. Having confidence in Him, that you have the right to walk in, for He made it possible for you to do so.
As a child of God, walk in the will of God and you will see the results of walking in His will.
Everyone stay blessed!!!!
