A Key To Knowing God’s Will

In summary of Ephesians 5:15-17 it says, "So watch your step, be careful how you live, don’t live like fools, use your head.  Make the most of every opportunity in these desperate and evil times.  Don’t act thoughtlessly, instead make sure you understand what the Lord wants you to do."

Bottom Line:
You really need to pay attention to how you live. You have to watch your step, use your head and be careful how you live.  Instead of just going through life thoughtlessly, understand what the Lord wants you to do and get after it.

What this means for me:
God has tasks in mind that he wants to accomplish through me.  His plan is not mystical or about following a formula or step-by-step procedures.  He won’t play games with me, he really wants me to understand his will for my life.  I'm learning that God’s way starts with me understanding who he is.  As I get to know him more each day, I find that I must be careful how I live.  I can’t be careless, just living life without a clue or even pursuing the wrong things.  Doing so will actually create barriers to understanding his will.  It’s through having a daily intimate friendship with him that he reveals more about what it is he wants me to do.  In summary God wants me to know him (he already knows me.)  Once I have my relationship with God established, over time direction for everything else; my career, family, goals, finances, health, ambitions and other relationships will begin to fall into their proper place.
