The first Road Sign for finding God’s Will is
SIGN #1: THE BIBLE—GOD’S WORD
I believe that God’s word is the greatest tool that we can use for discerning His will. The Bible doesn’t specifically reveal God’s individual will for us,(it does not say “Micah do this”) but it always has the answers for which way to go. It is always in the middle pointing us whether to the left or the right. This is so key. The specific way that God wants us to go is always in the direction that the Bible points to: “Keep right.” For example, when the Bible talks about choosing a mate—God declares all unbelievers are to the left—prohibited. “Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers” 2 Cor 6:14. The correct mate is always found among believers—so stay right. Further signs will need to be followed to find the specific person, but the Bible’s road sign is essential. If you miss this road sign, you will not even remain on the right road to see the other signs. It is imperative that you study the original intent of the author in each book. It is good to know who He was writing to; for example, 1 John was a letter written to help the people deal with their doubts concerning their salvation. Whatever situation you are going through, whatever decision it is that you need to make you MUST seek God’s word in your life. We must look for the signs of Scripture along the way.
God Bless, Micah
