When I was a young adult, I agonised over what God's will for my life was. I was reluctant to make a decision on anything, in case it wasn't God's will. I have since learned that a lot of things fall into God's will. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says, Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. According to this passage, God's will is:
1.Rejoice always - be cheerful about your earthly and spiritual blessings such as the Holy Spirit, the Bible, salvation, and eternal life.
2. Pray continually - pray throughout the day.
3. Give thanks in all circumstances - have an attitude of gratitude in the good times and the bad.
These verses help us to understand what God's will is for our lives. We'll look more at this topic in the next few weeks.
