God’s Will, Faith and Prayer

This week on the Straight Truth Podcast, we have a special compilation of three previous episodes. These episodes address important truth issues for the Christian who seeks to walk by faith, guided by the Scriptures and the Spirit, with prayer, and to live out their life for the will of God, to the glory of God. These three elements of the Christian life can only be rightly understood, first and foremost, by having a correct understanding of God’s sovereignty and His character. Secondly, we must have a right understanding of who He says we are. Where we learn these things is from the Word of God. It is here we gain answers to our questions and the wisdom to apply the principles from the truths that we find there.

New Testament believers have a responsibility to discover and know the will of God. But, what we're to be searching for is His revealed will, not His secret will (Deut 29:29).  Too many times we want to discover the will of God for this situation or that, without having any real interest in His revealed Word. We will only find and discover God's will through an intimate knowledge of His Word. As our knowledge of the Word of God increases, our faith increases, we gain discernment and we grow in maturity. This is because our minds are being informed, renewed and transformed by God’s Word. It is also in our time in God's Word that we are exposed to His sovereignty. When we comprehend and accept this, our understanding of the importance of prayer will change.

As Christians we are commanded to pray

As Christians we are commanded to pray, it’s not optional. Prayer is the will of God for the believer. Knowing God’s will and living it out by faith, in obedience, requires intentional prayer. Therefore we ought to come before the Lord armed with the knowledge of the Scriptures, knowing God as He’s revealed Himself there, bringing with us the experiential knowledge of God’s lovingkindness and faithfulness in our own lives.

For, nothing lies outside the reach of our prayers but that which does not accord with God's will. By faith, then, we pray, dependent on our sovereign God, admitting and confessing our sins, our needs, our weaknesses, and brokenness, all while seeking to align our wills with His. This is prayer, done in humble, thankful, obedience, acting in faith to the will of God, as we cry out for God's will to be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

As we listen carefully we can begin to understand the importance of these three aspects of the Christians life - God's will, growing in faith and the importance of prayer. We see how each is intertwined with the Christian having a right understanding of the sovereignty of God, knowing His character and growing in the intimate knowledge of His Word. This knowledge will inform, motivate, fuel and drive our Christian life. It will grow our faith, expand our prayers and increasingly fill us with the desire for the will of God to be done, all to the glory of God alone.
