Divine Guidance of the New Testament
Saturday, July 16, 2005

When seeking the discernment of God's Specific Will in our lives, we can be guided through these steps:

1. The Supremacy of Scriptures - What does the Word of God say? 2 Tim 3:14-17
2. The spirit if the seeker - Check your heart. What is the motivation? Ps 37:4, 2 Sam 23:5
3. The patience of prayer - Do we allow our hearts to be still and wait on the Lord? Do we allow the muddy water to stand and become clear? Is 48:17
4. The counsel of christians - Plans fail for lack of counsel but with many (Godly) advisors they succeed ~Prov. 12:15
5. The confirmation of circumstances - Are the doors opened/closed? Are there towering walls/barriers? Has God provided special provisions? Acts 16:6-10
6. The discipline of decision making - Decisions are made on the basis of personal character in its responsibility to God. 2 people may make different decisions on one situation and both be right. It's their circumstances and how God directs each. Ezra 7:18, Acts 15:22
7. The presence of peace - Do you feel God's peace? Phil 4:6,7
8. The supernatural signs of the Spirit - which may or may not be revealed to you.

One thing to keep in mind though...
"Never cut down a tree in winter." - Never make a negative decision during a low/down time.
AND
"Never light your own fire in times of 'darkeness'" - Do not try to take things into your own hands. God's in control. Let Him lead in His time. Isaiah 50

Ask: What is God's Will?
And not: What is God's Will in my life?
I pray that we can know God's Will and discern how WE can change our lives to fit into His Will!
When God appears, let us disappear...
