Praying the Will of God

Praying the will of God is not hard. Jesus told us the will of God. Are we going to pray for it? Or will we stagger at the words of Jesus and pray for less than God’s best?

Positive Anger

Many Christians are angry at the things they see and hear and justifiably so. We become angry at unfulfilled expectations. While there are times we need to adjust our expectations, there are other times our expectations don’t need adjusting but we need to make the adjustment in our dealings with the ones with whom we are angry. We need a way to turn our anger into something positive and constructive as God does. Read More

God’s Pruning

cleanse yourself spiritually with SOAP Study in the Word--giving God your whole heart

“Any child can count the number of seeds in an apple, but only God can count the number of apples in a seed.” The key to understanding the role of persecution, trouble, trial and affliction in the life of the Believer is to understand that God focuses on our eternal reward, not our earthly comfort.

A Unified Theory of the Will of God (Pt. 1 )

A Unified Theory of the Will of God

1 John 5:14-15 NKJV
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

On a pragmatic level, a solid understanding of God’s will is absolutely essential. We have to know God’s will to pray effectively.

The problem is, there are a lot of theories on the will of God. To the degree they are based upon Scripture, they are right and I agree with them. Unfortunately, that means I also disagree with them all as well because they can’t all be right. My rule for interpreting Scripture is simple: We are all in error to the degree we explain away the plain truth of Scripture.

With so much disagreement about something as fundamental as “What is God’s will?” How can we possibly pray according to God’s will? How can we possibly have confidence?

The Will of God is Threefold

The Body of Christ has been divided for far too long over something that is so simple. The Apostles understood the true nature of the will of God. Jesus lived it. Paul wrote about it. I call this the “Unified Theory of the Will of God.”

The first thing we need to know is that the will of God is threefold. As it is expressed, it explains heaven and hell, faith and works, what God desires, what God permits, and what God has determined from the foundations of the world. Read More
