Reversing a Lie

A lot of people have different views on knowing God's will and such. It's such a popular topic that there are many books out there already written on the it. I wrote a blog post awhile back about it, but I found some renewed insight while studying the book of Acts.

Some people say, "You can't know God's will! It's impossible!" I would agree to a certain extent. We can't know every single detail about our lives concerning the future. It's not like we will receive a vision about what will happen in great detail every single day of our lifespan. To that extent, of course we can't know God's will for our life in that sense. But God has given us the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Spirit holds many roles. One in particular is written in John 16:13, referring to the Holy Spirit:

When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.

According to this verse, we can know God's will concerning the future. The Holy Spirit gives us direction. The Holy Spirit has untold power that we can tap into at any time, just through prayer! We don't have to sit around wondering if we'll ever know God's will about a certain circumstance in life. We don't have to worry about the future. All we have to do is ask!
