How to determine the Will of God?

Firstly, the “Will of God” for each believer’s life may differ in many aspects but is certainly the same with regard to doctrinal truths to be obeyed.

“Now I exhort you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all agree and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be made complete in the same mind and in the same judgment.” – apostle Paul (1 Corinthians 1:10)

A Criteria to to determine the Will of God is this:

God’s Will consists of an “Easy Yoke & Light Burden” as written in Matthew 11:30.

The only reason we may have to ‘suffer’ in any way is due to the ‘evil’ done toward us ‘because we believe in Him’.

As far as life goes, God’s Will often is the choice which gives us “rest”, an “easy yoke” and “light burdens” while ‘the world’ tries to force the ‘opposite’ upon us so that we make ‘wrong choices’ in life & suffer needlessly thereafter; I repeat, the only suffering which is God’s Will is when we have to suffer for “being a Christian”. Nothing else matters.

Here are proof verses testifying to these:

“Come to Me, all those toiling and being burdened, and I will give you rest.

Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” – Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 11:28 – 30)

“But even if you should suffer because of righteousness, you are blessed. “And you should not be afraid of their threats, neither should you be troubled.” – apostle Peter (1 Peter 3:14)

“For it is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.” – apostle Peter (1 Peter 3:17)

“Suffer hardship with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the One Who enlisted him as a soldier.” – apostle Paul (2 Timothy 2:3 – 4)

“Therefore, those also who suffer according to the will of God shall entrust their souls to a faithful Creator in doing what is right.” – apostle Peter (1 Peter 4:19)

“How is it to your credit if you are beaten for doing wrong and you endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God.” – apostle Peter (1 Peter 2:20)

“but if anyone suffers as a Christian, he is not to be ashamed, but is to glorify God in this name.” – apostle Peter (1 Peter 4:16)

Because we preach His Words from Scripture as it is, some may ‘say evil’ on account of it; this too is worth suffering for as it is exhorted in Scripture as follows (A difference is- true believers never persecute anyone, they ‘love their enemies’ & let them be):

““Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.

“Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” – Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 5:11 -12)

Let us ‘know Him’ first because:

“All things have been delivered to Me by My Father. And no one knows the Son, except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father, except the Son, and to whom the Son might choose to reveal Him.” – Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 11:27)
