Six Keys to Know God’s Will For Your Life
1. God Wants You to be Saved.
1 Timothy 2:3-4 King James Version (KJV), “For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.”
2 Peter 3:9 (KJV), “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
My personal testimony on why and how I became a Christian is HERE.
2. God Wants You to be Spirit Filled
Ephesians 5:18 (KJV), “And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess, but be filled with the Spirit;”
3. God Wants You to be Sexually Pure
1 Thessalonians 4:3-4 (KJV), “For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;”
4. God Wants You to Submit Yourself to God
James 4:7-10 (KJV), “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.”

5. God Wants You to be Willing to Suffer for the Cause of Christ
1 Peter 3:17 (KJV), “For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing than for evil doing.”
6. God Wants You to Have a Spirit of Thanksgiving
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (KJV), “In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
