Seeking God's Will
Lee Delbridge

Introduction 
What is God's Will For You?  Here are some suggestions to help you discover God's will.

To discover God's will four things must agree.
1. Scripture
2. Your own abilities, likes, dislikes, 
    giftedness, etc.
3. The advice of Christian friends
4. Circumstances

The Bible (Scripture) list at least Five Things that are God's will for each one of us.

God Wants You To Be SAVED
II Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.

God Wants You To Be SANCTIFIED
I Thessalonians 4:3
For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality;

God Wants You To Be SERVING
I Peter 4:10
As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

God Wants You To Be SPIRIT-FILLED
Ephesians 5:18
And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit,

God Wants You To Be SATISFIED
I Thessalonians 5:16-18
Rejoice Always; pray without ceasing; in everything gives thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

The second of the four things that must agree is your own desires, likes, dislikes and giftedness.

God wants to use you the way He made you.  Someone said that whatever God calls you to do He will gift you to do.  It is also true that what God has gifted you to do He has called you to do. Whatever it is that you want to do MUST agree with the Bible. This will prevent your sinful human nature from misleading you. I may need to go outside my comfort zone but not my "giftedness" zone.

The third thing of the four that must agree is the advice of Christian friends.  If two or more of your Christian friends say you should do a certain thing and it agrees with your own giftedness and does not violate Scripture you are getting very close to God's will for you.

The fourth and last thing that must agree and "line up" with the other three is circumstances.  Circumstances by themselves are not good indicators. But when circumstances line up and agree with the other three then you can be pretty sure that is what God wants you to do.

Conclusion
When these four things agree (Scripture; your own desires and giftedness; the advice of Christians friends and circumstances) then that is what God wants you to do. Get busy!
