#Truth No 26 :  Twelve Questions to ask in finding the perfect will of God!!! 
This is a very important Truth that I have also learnt over the years. The Bible says in Romans 12:2, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”.
 It is wonderful to discover that there is a will of God for my life which is perfect. I learnt that from the time I was born again, till the end of my appointed days on Earth, God has mapped out and prepared a perfect Plan for every detail of My life. Jeremiah 29:11 says, ” For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” He has planned where I should live, whom I should marry, what occupation to do, what trials I should go through, what Temptations I should face and what ministry i should have in His body. These are all parts of God’s plan for your life. But you will never know it unless you have a Longing to know it. God does not force anyone to work in his plans. He does not even force people to go to Heaven even when He knows that Hell is not good for them. God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. If the Holy Spirit sees that you are not interested in knowing and doing God’s will for your life, He will just leave you alone. He won’t pursue after you. And in eternity, you will have a lot of regrets because when you map out your life, you are like a blind man, totally blind concerning the future. You don’t even know what’s gonna happen tomorrow. It’s like a blind man trying to walk through an unknown path. But God knows the whole future. He knows exactly what’s good for us. He can lead you in a path in your Earthly life that would be so perfect that when you stand before the Lord on the final day, and look back, you will realize that His plan was the best for your life. 
If you are a whole hearted Disciple of Jesus Christ, You will seek his plan in every area. You will say, “Oh Lord, I don’t want to live in any town you don’t want me to live. I don’t want to marry any girl or boy you don’t want me to marry. Lord, it’s your choice that would be uppermost in my life”. Therefore, if you a such a Wholehearted Disciple of Jesus Christ, I want to share with you soon principles by which you can prove the perfect will of God. I want to put this in form of 12 questions that we must ask ourselves if we are to find what is God’s Perfect will in every situation. If we ask ourselves these 12 questions and provide answer honestly, it would become more and more clear to us what the will of God is. 
(1).  Is this thing I am considering contrary to any teachings of Jesus and the Apostles or the Spirit of the New testament? Is it forbidden in God’s word in the New testament especially? 
(2) Is it something I can do with the a clear conscience? 
(3) Is it something I can do for the Glory of God? 
(4) Is it something I can do in fellowship with Jesus? 
(5) Can I ask God to bless Me as I do it? 
(6)Will my doing it blunt my spiritual edge? 
(7) will it be Spiritually profitable and Edifying to the best of my knowledge? 
(8) Will I be happy if I was found doing it at the moment Jesus comes? 
(9) What do wiser and more mature Spiritual Brothers think about it? 
(10) Will my doing it bring dishonor to God’s name or ruin my testimony if others know about it.? 
(11) Will my doing it cause others to stumble if they know about it? 
(12) Do I feel free in my Spirit to do it?
I strongly believe that if you mediate on these 12 questions in every decision you take, you can be sure of the perfect will of God even in areas that the Bible says nothing about. 
So this is my conclusion, “Renew your mind with God’s word. Know what the Bible says. God’s will is revealed to us in the Scriptures. It is by giving your time to the study of God’s word that you know what God’s will is in a particular place. Maybe there are situations in your life already that God’s word has provided answers to but because You have not studied the Scriptures, you are living in ignorance. Give yourself to the Word of God and the will of God will become clear to you”
This is the #Number 26 Truth that I have Learnt in 28 years. May the Lord give us Grace to fulfill his perfect will for our lives in Jesus name(Amen).
