IT’S YOUR HERITAGE TO KNOW HIS WILL
And he said, The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest
know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth (Acts 22:14).
Our opening verse was a message addressed to Saul of Tarsus, who was later known as Paul. The Lord had sent Ananias, a disciple at Damascus, to lay hands on him and also to tell him that he’d been chosen to know the will of God. What a message!
Not everyone knows the will of God, yet it’s the most important thing in life. To please Him, you first have to know His will. Only when you know His will can you begin to fulfil it and live accordingly. That’s why, as a child of God, the first and most important thing you have to do is
to discover what God’s plan is: What’s He saying to you now, and what does He want you to do?
You may ask, “Is it really possible to know the will of God? Can one actually know His will?” Absolutely! Read Ephesians 1:9; it says, “Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself.” Jesus said, “…it is
given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven…” (Matthew 13:11). It’s your heritage to know the will of the Father.
In Colossians 1:9, the Lord also expressed His desire for you to “…be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.” You know His will from studying His Word. God’s Word is the revelation of His will.
As you study the Word, the Father’s heart—His thoughts, plans, and purposes are unveiled to you. His light will dawn in your heart as the truth unveils. Then you understand God’s way of thinking and are synchronized with Him.
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for the enlightenment that has come to my spirit through your Word. As I meditate on the Word, and fellowship with the Spirit, my spirit is enlightened and I have insight into mysteries and secrets. I’m guided by your wisdom to fulfill my glorious call in Christ, for your glory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
