How to Follow God’s Will

Finding God’s will for your life is essential, but it’s just the beginning. Once you start moving in God’s direction, you have a big target painted on your back. Satan will do everything he can to stop you. If you don’t bump into the devil, it’s because you both are headed in the same direction.

You’re going to have all kinds of problems trying to follow God’s will. You can definitely learn from hard knocks. I certainly have. But I don’t recommend it. There is a better way. You can learn from somebody else’s hard knocks.

This is exactly what the Scripture has to say:

Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. [7] Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. [8] Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. [9] Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents. [10] Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. [11] Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

1 Corinthians 10:6-11

This is very clear that the reason all these things are listed is so that you don’t have to learn everything the hard way. See the way that God dealt with these people and their actions, and learn from their example.

I’ve made my share of mistakes as I’ve followed the Lord, but I’ve also avoided many of them through taking instruction from the Scripture. I want to share with you from the life of Moses some of the things God showed me. If you can receive this—if you can read it not only as a Bible story but take the lessons you see in Moses’ life and then apply them directly to your life—it will be a tremendous benefit. I can promise you that this lesson from Moses’ life is relevant to every single person.

Exodus 2:11-15 says,

And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens: and he spied an Egyptian smiting an Hebrew, one of his brethren. [12] And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand. [13] And when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong, Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow? [14] And he said, Who made thee a prince and a judge over us? intendest thou to kill me, as thou killedst the Egyptian? And Moses feared, and said, Surely this thing is known. [15] Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian: and he sat down by a well.

If you only took this passage of Scripture, then you could read into it and suppose some of the things that Cecil B. DeMille depicted in The Ten Commandments. For instance, in the movie, Moses did not know he was Hebrew. So, when he went out and killed this Egyptian, he did it just because he was a nice guy who took up for the underdog. But if you have an overview of the entire Word of God, you’ll discover that’s not how it happened.

In Acts 7:23, Stephen, speaking of Moses, said,

And when he was full forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren the children of Israel.

In other words, he knew he was Jewish. God had started this whole thing by laying it on Moses’ heart to go “visit his brethren the children of Israel.” Continue Reading
