I Just Want God's Will
I'm so confused! When I think I have something figured out in the Bible, someone tells me differently. How do I know I understand the Bible clearly? I just want to do God's perfect will!

Pretty simple, 2 timothy 2:15,(KJV) tells us to study, and to rightly divide. There are instructions for Israel, and there are instructions for gentiles (Romans through Philemon). God's will is for that all men to be saved. Christ how ever paid the sin debt we owed. completely paid for, no strings attached. Anymore questions e-mail me. Jerry

When you read the bible, and you understand what you have read, believe what YOU have read, not what someone else says. When one listens to another person, they fall flat on their face. What they think is right to them, but may not be for you. The Holy Spirit is here to teach us and give us an understanding, I would seek the Holy Spirit on teaching and leave it at that.

If you're genuine, God will guide you. Be patient: God speaks only when He wants to speak. Don't be distracted by the noise around you. Keep spiritual life personal. When the Lord speaks, don't talk about it. Also, God doesn't speak to us through Bible alone, but also directly to our hearts through environment, dreams/visions etc. When He speaks you'll know. Remember regardless how much bible you know, you will find the truth only when your heart is right--> Thy will be done

Stick around, sooner or later an issue you are confused over will be discussed here.
You may not have a "winner" to the debate clearly announced, but I promise you'll ahve enough information to add to your study to help make up your mind.
I'd suggest "my utmost for his highest" (a daily devotional) by Oswald Chambers.
You won't regret it.

The Holy Bible is inspired, so you must be in spirited in order to get the right meaning. Many ambiguous and obscure passages are presented in scripture exclusively to keep out certain condemned enemies of the cross.

Hi, Cathy. God bless you for your desire to do God's perfect will. You are at the right place in your walk with the Lord. Read James 1:5. The Lord sees you and hears your cry, continue to trust him to give you the answers you desire.

I commend you for desiring to do God's perfect will. Stay in the Word and you wouldn't go wrong. God's Will is God's Word and vice versa. If you have a question or confusion about something, examine it in the light of God's Word and the Holy Spirit will illumine everything for you. He is the God of order and not of confusion.
