For the *last 2 weeks* we’ve been on the *subject* of *knowing God’s will for our lives*.
As I said before, I *can not tell you specifically what it is that God wants you to do*, but there are *many things from the Word* that *tells us what God’s will is for you* and *there are many things that show us how to find out the specific things*.
*I.
Turn* with me to */LUKE 12:32/*.
*A.
Jesus said* that it is the *Father’s will* to *give you* the *kingdom*.
*Our* Heavenly *Father* *wants* to *give you* the very *best*.
*Giving you the kingdom* *means* that He wants you to *reign as kings*.
*1.
**/ROM 5:17/*
                                  *a.
*The */Amplified Bible/* says, “*/Reign as kings in life through the One, Jesus Christ/*.”
*i.
As we are truly serving the Lord, we will be blessed*.
*ii.
You are the only 1* that *can answer that* question, “*/Whether or not you are TRULY serving the Lord/*.”
*b.
*Turn with me to */PRO 10:22/*
                                           *i.
*The *word* “*/Blessing/*” can also *mean* “*/Prosperity/*.”
The word “*/RICH/*” it *means* “*/Rich, or Wealthy/*.”
*Prosperity* *that comes from a source other than God is going to have a lot of sorrow with it*.
The word “*/sorrow/*” *means* “*/pain, hurt, toil, sorrow, labor, hardship or grievous/*.”
*c.
*There is *only 1 way* that we are *to reign* *and prosper* *and* that is *by* *or through* the Lord *Jesus* Christ.
*i.
*Any *other prosperity* is *going to add sorrow*, *pain, hurt, and hardship*, and it is going to be *grievous*.
*ii.
*But *when God blesses*, it comes with *no sorrow*.
*B.
*In (*/2 Corinthians 2:14/*) Paul said, “*/Now thanks [be] unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ/*.”
*1.
God wants us to have victory in life*, *but we don’t always get the victory*.
*Why*?
*a.
/1/* *reason* is that we are *not always looking to Jesus for the answer*.
*i.
*(*/Hebrews 12:2/*) Says, “*/Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of [our] faith/*.”
(KJV)
                                           *ii.
*The word “*/Finisher/*” in this */V/* *means* “*/Perfecter/*.”
*b.
*The *only way* that our *faith* is *going to be* “*/perfected/*” is by us *looking to Jesus*.
*i.
*In other words, *the only way* that were going to *have God given victory* is to *look to Jesus*.
(*Without taking your eyes off of Him*.)
                                           *ii.
When a person begins to look at* the *problem again OR begins to look somewhere else for the answer*, *they limit God*, *even* *to the place* that where their *life ends up in failure*.
*2.
*We *already know about Peter* that he *started* to *walk* *on* the *water*, but *got* his *eyes* *on* the *storm*, *on* the *problem*, and *started* to *sink*.
*a.
Getting* your *eyes* *off* of *Jesus* *and* *on* the *problem* can *cause* *failure*.
*3.
*But *also* *looking* *to* or *trusting in* *another source* can also *cause* *failure*.
*a.
/Saul/* is a */good example/* of that.
*i.
Saul* was *God’s chosen man*, and anointed by God.
                                           *ii.
*But *after* *time* he *began* to *look* *to his power*, *his ability*, and *his wealth*, *instead* of *looking* *to God* as his source.
*His life ended in failure*.
*4.
**/MATT 19:16-24/*
                                  *a.
This man* would *rather trust in riches* *before trusting in* the Lord *Jesus* Christ.
*i.
Jesus* is *telling us* that *trusting in anything else before the Lord can lead* to the worse *failure*, *being lost*.
*b.
*(*/Proverbs 3:5/*) Says, “*/Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding/*.”
(KJV)
                                           *i.
*The word “*/Understanding/*” can also *mean* “*/Wisdom or Knowledge/*.”
*ii.
*We are to *trust* *in the Lord* *and not in our own wisdom and knowledge*.
*5.
*A */good example/* of */someone/* that */looked to the Lord/* all his days, was */David/*.
*a.
Even though* there was a time when *he really blew it*, when he *committed adultery* with Bath-sheba and *had* her *husband killed*.
*/(2SAM 11 and 12/* *reap what you sow*.) (*Nathan*)
                                  *b.
David* *got* his *life back on track*.
He *kept* his *eyes* *on* the *Lord*.
He *trusted* in the *Lord* that He would *always make the difference*.
*i.
David* was *very blessed*, all the *days* of *his* *life*.
*c.
God’s* *will for you is to have the best*, but that will *only come* about *when you continue to look to him*.
*II.
**Some* have *clamed* that *God brings sickness or disease upon His people to teach* them *something* *or* even to *develop* their *character*.
*They say that this is part of God’s will*.
*A.
*But (*/JOHN 10:10/*) Says, */That it is the thief (Satan) who comes to/* *steel, kill and to destroy*.
*        1.
**Sickness* is part of *Satan’s work*.
*        b.
*That same */V/* says that *Jesus* came to *give life and to give it more abundantly.
*
                        *        c.
**/MATT 10:1/*
*                                  **        i.
**It’s God’s will for you to be healed.*
*                                 **        ii.
**If you’re not sick, then it’s his will for you to have divine health.
(Free form sickness) *
     *        B.
**Some* have *thought* that *DIVORCE and SIN disqualifies people from Christian service*.
*1.
**Divorce* is *not* the *unpardonable sin*.
