Because, “Hey, it was the will of God, and we don’t know why it all happened or didn’t happen,
but hey, don’t question the will of God.” This is a very subtle way of saying, “Don’t ask me any
more questions about it or make me have to answer or face it or deal with it.” It’s very
convenient, but it’s a lie and deception.
I’m asking and answering the question “How can we find the will of God?” because millions of
people believe what we’ve been talking about:
If they get healed, then it was the will of God. If
they didn’t get healed, then it must not have been the will of God. If they get blessed and prosper,
then it was the will of God. If not, it was the will of God for them to be poor
. I’m sorry, but that is
just unacceptable in light of the Bible. Is it true that everything that happens is somehow the will
of God? I think not.
Romans 12:2 says, “Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of
your mind, that ye may prove…”
means “test and find out.” What are you going to find
out? “…what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.”
Now, if everything that happens is the will of God, why do you need this “renewal and testing
and proving”? You wouldn’t need any of that because everything is the will of God. He’s saying
you’ve got to get your mind renewed so that you think right. You’ve got to learn some things and
be taught and understand some things so that you can test everything that’s around you and
Will of God? No, that’s not the will of God
that’s good; that’s the will of God.
that’s sort of the will of God. That’s half way it…,
oh man, that’s the perfect will of God
that’s absolutely not the will of God
Are we supposed to learn how to discern, prove, test, and find the good, acceptable, and perfect
will of God? Who’s supposed to find out what the will of God is? You are. I am. Is it going to
take a little doing? Yes, it is. You’re going to have to make some changes in your thinking. Your
mind needs to be renewed; it’s kind of like being reprogrammed. “Renewed” indicates
something was in there, and we need it renewed. We need something else to go over it. There are
going to be some changes in how you think.
I’m still talking about how we find the will of God. Some people say everything that happens—
good and bad—is the will of God. First Thessalonians 4:3 says this: “For this is the will of God,
even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication.” Is there any fornicating going
on? Any adultery going on? Is it the will of God?
You cannot just pick and choose. If you believe that everything that happens with men’s and
women’s bodies in healing and sickness is the will of God, then why doesn’t it apply over here
What is the will of God? Control yourself. Possess your body. Don’t have affairs. Don’t be in
fornication. Don’t be in adultery. That is the will of God. The Bible says it very plainly. Is the
will of God happening everywhere, with everyone? No.
Are there things happening on the earth that are not the will of God? Who is supposed to find out
the will of God? We are. How are we going to find it? We need some mind renewal.
