Making Decisions In Accordance With God’s Will

These are my notes on a lesson that was brought by one of the members of our congregation, David Truong.
It is hard to know God’s will.
Psalms 32:8-desire to love and guide us
Matt. 5-7 Sermon on the mount. “Ask and you shall receive, knock…open, seek…find”
Don’t worry-just go to God
Rom.12:1-2-“transform by renewing of mind”
Seek God first, then you will figure out his will. What has He revealed to let us know what He wants from us?
1Peter 1:13-“do not conform to evil desires”
vs 22-“now purified”
Psalms -“Lord, how do I live on Your holy mountain?”
Which job should I get? There’s no need to lie on resume. You will get a job. No need to impress others-Matt. 6:1-4-like the Pharisees-not for attention
Do 2 things if you are grappling with something–confess your sins and pray about it.
1 John 1:9-“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive our sins…to cleanse us”
Phil. 4:6-“Do not be anxious, in everything by prayer and supplication make your requests made known…”
Psalms-“I cried out, God has surely listened…”
Acts 2:38-39
We all have an expiration date. What can we say about our life by the time we get there?
