For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

Jeremiah 29:11 NLT

Many times, we as Christians can step out of the will of God, because we never found out what His will actually is.

What is the will of God?

The will of God refers to the purpose of God, the plan of God and the heart of God for your life.

God has a plan, purpose and desire for all of us.

Every day of our lives is to be lived for God’s purpose, according to His plan, and in obedience to His desires.

But how can we be certain we are walking in His will, especially in times of difficulty, suffering, or pain? Or when everything comes crashing down around us and the enemy stands at the side to taunt us?

“Each day is filled with decisions, and every choice is an opportunity to ask the Lord what He would have us do.

In this message, Dr. Stanley shares principles from Scripture to help us evaluate our circumstances and decisions through the lens of God’s will.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28

Even in times of heartache and hardship, and we can thank the Lord for His empowering presence and unwavering love!

We hope you have enjoyed this inspiring message.

Have you made a salvation plan?
