How do I know if this is God’s Will or My will? In talking with people, I hear this all the time and I have to say that I used to wonder this all the time myself. Today, I have an answer and I don’t wonder anymore and you don’t have to either.
For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. Hebrews 4:12 NLT
The Word of God, your Bible, is the way to discern whether or not its just you or its God. The Word is sharp enough to cut or divide between your soul and your spirit. Our soul is our thoughts, our will and our emotions. We are a spirit and we live in a body. The Bible says that the word of God is so sharp that it can actually divide or cut between our soul and our spirit. If our actions and thoughts line up with the Word which are Gods thoughts then its God. If our emotions and thoughts don’t line up with the Word then its our will. Simple, yes. Easy..no. So now you might ask.. How do I know if my thoughts line up with Gods word? Well..that means that you must spend time in it. God has given us His will and used men to get it written down for us. We don’t have to wonder whether something is Gods will or not. He wants us to know His will and He’s got it in the Bible so that we can read it and know what to do in EVERY situation we find ourselves in. God has something to say about everything we face..relationships, sickness, money, family, children, employment etc.. You might try looking in your bible for topical references to find the scriptures that deal with what you need. If you need help, just message me and I’d be glad to help.
