Welcome to Word of Life Study Series – Faith Begins where the Will of God is known and God’s Word is God’s will. If God says it in His Word, that settles it; truth and will not change, regardless of our experiences or what we see happen to others. The Bible is God’s Will and Testament, it’s a legal instrument, sealed by blood covenants- old and new. God’s Word is spiritual laws that are absolute and cannot fail; otherwise I believe that God would cease to be God. What Jesus said in Matthew 24:35, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away” is an eternal statement.
1. The Mystery Revealed
Both teaching and preaching the Word of God are modes of communication that brings the Word to light. There is something so powerful when the Word of God is spoken from the heart. Faith comes by hearing the Word of God; without hearing the gospel, the good news concerning the redemptive work of Jesus, it is impossible to be saved. Upon hearing the Word, faith comes; believing that Word in our heart and confessing it out of our mouth brings the manifestation of the promises of God.
2. God’s Word is God’s Will
If you are wondering what God’s will is for your life, look no further, the Bible is God’s will and New Testament.
Ephesians 5:17- Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.
This Scripture goes without saying, but what is God’s will for my life? How and where can I find it out? This age old question has been asked more times than we can count, but the answer is right at our finger tips. The Bible contains God’s will and plan of redemption for our lives on earth, and for all eternity. What about specific direction like, “Is it God’s will for me to buy this car or take this job or go into the ministry?” The answer to this is Romans 8:14, “because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.” Learning how to be led by the Holy Spirit in the decision process for the specifics in life is another subject, but an important one to find out! For our purposes here, we will discover that for most questions in life concerning God’s will for humanity, it is expressly covered and discussed throughout the pages of the Bible.
3. Praying According to God’s Will
Prayers that avail much are Bible based in nature.
Matthew 6: 9-11
“This is how you should pray: “‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread.’”

Through the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus taught us that our prayers should be based on God’s will being done on earth as it is in heaven. What is God’s will in heaven? That is what we should be praying for in our lives here on the earth. If our behavior on earth should be the same as though we were in heaven, then the reality of life should be the same on earth as it is in heaven also.
