His Good Plan
“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect” (Romans 12:2 NLT).
I believe that God has a plan for your life. That’s why every believer should ask God to reveal His will for them. James tells us, “If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking” (verse 5 NLT).
We read in Exodus that Moses asked the Lord for divine direction. He said, “Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight” (33:13 NKJV).
When you don’t know what to do, pray about it.
Romans 12 offers a very important insight into how to know the Will of God. The apostle Paul wrote, “And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him” (verse 1 NLT).
Paul went on to say, “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect” (verse 2 NLT).
So if you want to know the good and pleasing and perfect Will of God, then first present yourself to Him. It’s something we should do again and again, not just once. Then the Lord promises that He will reveal His Will.
Let’s also notice that God’s Will is “good and pleasing and perfect.” So don’t be afraid to ask God to reveal His Will to you. Never be afraid to commit an unknown future to known God. God loves you. And His plan for you is good.
