Knowing the Will of God

So you want to know the will of God for your life.

A friend and mentor once told me that it is the job of a parent to make his or her will known to a child. It’s not the child’s job; it’s the parent’s.

God is the best Father of all. He is able to make his will known to his children.

We write books about knowing his will; we analyze how to know his will; and all our analysis just gets in the way.

We have only one thing to work on: how much do you want to do his will.

Sometimes the will of God is the most delightful thing that could ever happen to you. Sometimes it seems like the most painful thing that could happen to you.

What are you going to look at? The will of God? Or the cost of the will of God?

If anyone wants to do his will, then he will know of my teaching, whether it is from God. ~ Jesus Christ

About Paul Pavao

I am married, the father of six, and currently the grandfather of two. I run a business, live in a Christian community, teach, and I am learning to disciple others better than I have ever been able to before. I believe God has gifted me to restore proper foundations to the Christian faith. In order to ensure that I do not become a heretic, I read the early church fathers from the second and third centuries. They were around when all the churches founded by the apostles were in unity. I also try to stay honest and open. I argue and discuss these foundational doctrines with others to make sure my teaching really lines up with Scripture. I am encouraged by the fact that the several missionaries and pastors that I know well and admire as holy men love the things I teach. I hope you will be encouraged too. I am indeed tearing up old foundations created by tradition in order to re-establish the foundations found in Scripture and lived on by the churches during their 300 years of unity.
