Just Because I Really Want It, Does God Want Me to Have It?

By Allen White

There's nothing like the written Word of God for showing you the way to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God's way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us. 2 Timothy 3:15-17 (MSG)

How do we know if our desires line up with what pleases God? God’s Word is a great place to start. God will never direct you to do anything that contradicts any part of His Word. The more we know and understand God’s Word; we will have better discernment about God’s direction in our lives. If we’ve read the Bible many times, then it might be the time to take a Hermeneutics class and dig a little deeper.

God’s Word works this way in our lives: It teaches, rebukes, corrects and trains in righteousness. It tells us where the path is (teaches). The Bible tells us where we’ve strayed from the path (rebukes). It shows us the way back to the path (corrects). And, God’s Word directs us how to stay on the path (trains). The more time we spend with God’s Word, the more He will rub off on us.
