The General Overview of the Will of God

By Dr. Richard J. Krejcir
A basic general idea of what does it mean to know the will of God. Seek first the kingdom of God, a general overview of who is the will of God.
"What is God's Will?"

Finding God's will is not about programs or methods, it is about a person who is God, who wants us! A loving relationship! Asking the question, what does God want me to do, is the starting point, and the focus of the will of God. Matt 6:33-34 "Seek first the kingdom of God" The will of God has more to do with controlling our hearts, than what we do in our planning and ideas (I PET 5)!! We must be a servant of Christ, to let Him mold and shape us to His Glory and purpose, and remain in this relationship! To know the will of God more intimately, He will reveal it, as we grow close in our experience with Him! The three types of God's will:

1. REVEALED WILL: God's laws concerning lifestyle and righteous living for all Christians (it is not God's will to ever leave your spouse or start a cult!).

2. DETERMINED WILL: That cannot be thwarted or stopped by anything (predestination, it will happen!!!)

3. SPECIFIC WILL: God's special plan for each believer (whom we marry, career, and education, etc.).
