Knowing God’s Will—It’s a Powerful Thing!

“He made known to us the mystery of his will.”  Eph 1:9 NIV


What a joy it is when the will of God is no longer a mystery, because He has made it “known to us.” Suddenly your outlook is different, your attitude changes, and fear can no longer play games with your mind. Now you know—and knowledge is power! The Bible says, “The people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits” (Da 11:32). There are times you know things in your spiritthat you can’t figure out in your head. And it can cause you to be misunderstood. You can carry the knowledge of a breakthrough or a blessing in your spirit long before it happens. The Bible says, “We know about these things because God has sent His Spirit to tell us” (1Co 2:10 TLB). When God imparts wisdom to you, it puts you in a position to succeed. What separates the bank president from the janitor? It’s what he or she knows! They may be equal in every other sense, but one has paid a price to learn things that place him or her in a different position that brings different rewards. “We know these things.” God can cause you to knowsomething that will change the course of your life. He can show you something during the night that changes how you feel in the morning. In His presence you receive insights that give you purpose, hope, dignity, direction, and the strength to get up and fight for what He promised you in His Word. So get into His presence today—and stay there until He reveals His will to you in the matter.
