The First Key Is Love


How To Know God's Will In Decision Making?

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

John 3:16 NKJV


God decided to give His Son for the salvation of mankind because He loved them. Love was the motivational factor of His action and His love was unconditional.


Whatever you want to do in life must be motivated by the love of God. If you do anything because you fully trust Him and that you are confident in His love for you no failure is a failure even if you fail. 


God's first product failed but He didn't give up. He replaced the first Adam with the last Adam. So cheer up. Be confident in God's love for you. He loves you unconditionally.


When you are confident in God's love for you and you love yourself the way God loves you, you will be able to love others as well in the same manner. In this kind of atmosphere, you will be able to think properly and know the will of God for your life which will help you to make the right decision in life.


He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

I John 4:8 NKJV


Once a person gets the revelation of God's agape love he or she will be able to love God back. God is love. The love nature of God becomes his nature too. The love of God becomes his or her treasured possession and moves and operates in it.


The love of God is the number one priority in my life. I can't live without it. It helps me to think, talk, and act properly. Love is the number one key to know God's will in decision making.


The Second Key Is Joy

“For you shall go out with joy, And be led out with peace; The mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing before you, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

Isaiah 55:12 NKJV


The best way to make decisions is to be in a joyful state first. The stressed mind cannot make the right decisions. 


Joy is God's way of leading people. When God is leading you you will feel His presence and you get excited. You will feel empowered by the Spirit of the LORD. 


When I am in a state of joy I feel the presence of God because there is fullness of joy in the presence of God.  And the best way to experience that joy is to be aware of the presence of God which is within us.


Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.

Isaiah 12:3 NKJV


Once you are aware of the presence of God within you and start thanking and praising God for all the blessings the joy of the Lord bubbles up from within you. And then you will begin to see things from God's perspectives which will enable you to make the right decisions.


The Third Key Is Peace

You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.

Isaiah 26:3 NKJV


I put my mind into the word of God for everything that concerns me. When I'm putting my mind on the word of God my mind is staying on God. It happens because I trust in Him.


Anyone who wants to trust God for any situation in life one must put their mind on God by meditating on the word of God. In doing so you will be able to experience the peace of God that surpasses all understanding. 


Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6‭-‬7 NKJV


Peace of God will be your guide to guide you in the right direction.  Anything that does not give you peace is not worth doing. Peace must come from within you. 


Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

I Peter 5:6‭-‬7 NKJV


When you get stress you won't be able to make the right decision. You must be humble enough to let God take over your situation and turn it around for you.


Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

John 14:27 NKJV


The LORD has blessed us with His very own peace to us. He will never want you to lose His peace. He wants you to live in that peace because it is His peace that will protect your heart and mind.
