Dear Brother in our Lord,
I am not a youth eligible to participate in the youth discussion forum. However I found your query not being responded to adequately in spite of the query being of much importance for a seeker. Therefore I try to put forward my views on the subject for the benefit of those that are seriously seeking to DO the Will of God on earth.
Your question is “How someone can understand the perfect will of God? What are methods or mode to know?” I am not going to make a long literary composition on the subject. I will try to touch upon only the basic and practical aspects.
How to seek God's will:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will direct your paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
Brother George P Koshy has rightly said “God's will is spelled out perfectly in the Scriptures, the 66 books we call the Bible. To know the will of God, you should be a child of God and you should ask for the help of the Holy Spirit.” I fully concur with that and proceed to address your query as follows:
1. 1. BECOME A CHILD OF GOD
Love God and TRUST in His Promises. BELIEVE in the plan of Salvation that God has devised for the mankind. Remember- “ Believing" is not just superficial acknowledgement of a fact. Believing is “Be Living”.
2. 2. BELIEVE in Jesus Christ as your LORD and SAVIOUR. Surrender your life to the Lordship of Jesus Totally and Unconditionally. Jesus is the incarnated Almighty God one with the Father.
3. 3. Wages of Sin is Death. The final Destiny of all sinners is the Eternal Hell fire. Whilst Faith in Jesus Christ is the only solution for deliverance from the consequences of sin, it is equally important to confess your sins and detest sin. Resolutely determine to fight all temptation to sin resting on the power of the Holy Spirit.
4. Once you have thus become a child of God, as children of God it is our PRIVILEGE (much more than duty) to do the Will of God on earth. Our life on earth has been made meaningful and Precious on account of our election which is absolutely the Sovereign act of God demonstrating His mercy on us. In return we aim to WORSHIP Him in Spirit and Truth. The aim of Romans 12:1-2 is that all of life would become “spiritual worship”. “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
5. Now that your specific query has been addressed, you may proceed to know the Will of God from the Word of God. Some relevant portions are given hereunder.
1Ti 2:3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
(b) SPIRIT FILLING
Eph 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; 21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
1Pe 2:13 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; 14 Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.15 For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:
1Pe 3:17 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
1Th 5:18 In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Heb 10:35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. 36 For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. 37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. 39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
