We need to know and obey God’s sovereign will and God’s commanded will. The Bible says: “See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.” (Ephesians 5:15-17 KJV) Many people don’t obey God’s will because they don’t know what it is. We cannot know God’s will unless we spend time with God and in His Word daily, reading and re-reading God’s wonderful and powerful Word. God’s Word is often referred to as our Spiritual food and this is one food that we cannot over-eat. In fact, some people seem to be on a “spiritual diet” because they only eat a little and then they are full, or so they think they are. Many people think that if they have read it already, they don’t need to read it again but the more times we read it, the more we will understand it and will be able to obey it and allow it to change our lives. It is foolish to think that we can know God’s will without being in His Word because God has revealed His will for us throughout His Word. “The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.” (Deuteronomy 29:29 KJV) God has revealed everything we need to know in order to be saved and to know how to live godly lives. Although Paul knew the wisdom and knowledge of God, he was still overwhelmed at the depth of it. “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor? Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.” (Romans 11:33-36 KJV) Paul is a great example for us to follow. He knew and loved God and knew that it was God’s will that all people would know and love God. And Paul prayed for his fellow believers. “That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.” (Ephesians 3:16-19 KJV) Paul prayed that the Ephesians would be given power to understand the immeasurable and gracious love of God that was revealed through Jesus and His sacrifice. Paul finishes his prayer, saying: “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20-21 KJV) How can we know God’s will? By immersing ourselves into God’s Word.
