[adsense] Let the will of God be your goal in any situation you may find yourself. Joseph as a slave had the will of God at heart, and he never succumbed to the seducer. Daniel, when faced with the threat of fire, opted to do the will of God. I read two mails and one writer said he was so fed up and that he was considering suicide. Ah! May be he is even being envied without his knowledge! The other said he was anxious and worried. These three things, suicide, anxiety and worry are not the will of God for you. What have you seen in life? Do not allow the devil to waste your life. Do not resign, just when God is about to do something new. Your condition is about to improve, so dont give up! Your miracle is at the door.
1Thessalonian5:18 In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Read Psalm67. Giving God praises is not the only will of God, there are many others, some of which are discussed here.
The will of God is anything pleasing, delightful and acceptable to God. There are many things which you can do that God approves, whether in the face of challenges or in good seasons. They are all written in the Bible, and I will list some of them.
Be Born Again: You may be going to the church three times a week and be paying tithe, offerring and church building funds, but if you have not accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, you are not yet born again. If Jesus is your Lord, you will yield yourself to Him totally and do what the Bible says. Total yieldedness is only possible when you leave the old way of life and take up the new way in Jesus Christ. 2Corinthians5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
Be Holy: Living holy is attainable, if not, God will not say, Be ye holy for I am holy, 1Peter1:16. Y ou are called out of the world to purify and dedicate yourself unto God. You can no longer do what the world does. Your conversation, dressing, attitude must be holy, like your Father. You must first be determined to live holy before you ask for the help of the Holy Spirit. Read 1Thessalonians4:1-12 and 1Peter1:13-2:1-25 to see how to live Holy life pleasing to God. You will find more as you read your Bible.
Be a Reader and Student of the Holy Bible: The Bible is written for us our example, comfort and hope, Romans15:4 It is also for doctrine, correction and instruction in righteousness, 2Timothy3:16. The Bible is our life map and God’s manual for us on earth, it is profitable for you to read. It is through your Bible study that you will discover the will of God. The three hours your pastor gives you every week is not enough. You are to know your God and His will for you personally. Everyone who is born again has access to the revelation of God. Do your own study by yourself. You may even see what your pastor did not see. God reveals His word to individuals. He called your pastor today, He may also call you tomorrow. You must abide in the Lord and let His word abide in you, this makes easy access to answered prayers.John15:5 STUDY!
Pray Always: Jesus said that men always ought to pray and not to faint , Luke18:1. Paul said, Pray without ceasing, 1Thessalonians5:17. Prayer is your communication with God, and God communicates back to you. God’s reply may be immediate or later. God delights in the prayer of the upright, Proverbs15:8. Prayer is power, so asking you to pray always is asking you to go to God for power. If you start with ten minutes, you will naturally increase it. Do not wait until you can pray one hour at a time. PRAY!
Speak Right: This is very important. Read Genesis1 and see how God spoke the universe into being. After fasting and praying, water your labour with good and right words. Do not give your angel wrong instructions by speaking negative words; the angel will carry out your words. Ecclesiastes5:6 Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice and destroy the works of thine hands? If God is angry at wrong words, then He is pleased when you speak right words. No matter your circumstances, speak the words which you want God to confirm.
Be Obedient: Every obedience to the word of God is doing the will of God. Do not limit yourself to the ten commandments. There are many more commandments. Jesus summarised all the commandments into two. The first is, Love God with all your heart, your soul and your mind and with all your strength. The second is, You shall love your neighbour as yourself. Mark12:30,31. Loving God and your neighbour is doing His will. The will of God is the Holy Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Be a doer of what is required of you to do.
Jesus came to earth to do the will of God, and He is still making intercession for the saints according to the will of God, Romans8:27. Who are we not to do His will? It is for our advantage when we do the will of God.

You are a treasure to God and He values you greatly. Isaiah43:1-4, Psalm91:16
When you do the will of God the fear of the enemy will be far from you. They are the ones to fear you and not you fearing them. So let doing the will of God be your priority. Stand for God always and He will see you through every prison and every lions’ den.
1Peter3:13 And who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good.
Prayer Point: Father, give me the grace to do your will; everyday of my life, in the name of Jesus.
Glory to God. Jesus is Lord!
