Ephesians 5:15-17 (NET)
15 Therefore be very careful how you live – not as unwise but as wise,
16 taking advantage of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
17 For this reason do not be foolish, but be wise by understanding what the Lord’s will is.
After Aarav accepted the Lord and understood the importance of fulfilling divine destiny, he wanted to know the will of God in every decision he was to make because he understood that walking in the will of God is the definition of walking wisely.
He would seek to hear from God either by prophecy, word of knowledge or by dreams in order to be sure that a decision he was to make is God’s will.
But as Aarav grew in the faith, he realized that he became wiser spiritually, and in most cases, he didn’t need a prophetic manifestation in order to discern the will of God. He now understood the will of God, and this made him walk more accurately and wisely.
God does not just want us to know His will, He wants us to understand His will. Understanding the will of God is a product of spiritual wisdom (see Ephesians 5:17). There is what the Bible calls spiritual wisdom and understanding (see Colossians 1:9). Spiritual wisdom is a product of fruitful knowledge of God’s Word and counsel. If a believer applies his heart to the word of God and determines to live according to it, the word of God will change his outlook to life. As this happens, he becomes wiser and is able to understand the will of God. There are many grey areas in this life, and those who would navigate accurately are those who have minds that can understand God’s will.
When you read the Bible and see God make decisions, go beyond knowing what the decisions were and try to understand why they were made. This would help you understand the mind of God and walk in it.
Go into today desiring to understand the will of God in all areas of life. This is the secret of walking wisely and fulfilling divine purpose.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, please help me understand Your will and walk in it all the days of my life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
