The need to understand the will of God


By Sarah Kyomugisha

The will of God means His plans for us and the grace to follow what He commands us to do.

The will of God makes Him the Almighty because He indeed has the final say in all our plans (Proverbs 19:21).

In Matthew 6:10, we see Jesus teaching the Lord’s prayer, in which the will of God is evoked to be done on earth.

In the same way today, different institutions and governments have rules or laws that govern them.

The supreme power is invested in presidents, kings and queens; who have the final say in issues pertaining to their systems of governments.

In the same way, God has the utmost control over everything in this world.

Listen and watch
There is need to understand God’s will in our lives so as to avoid His wrath in our lives (Ephesians 5:15-20).

While growing up, I have seen my fellow youths fall into problems which could have been avoided if they had listened to God’s voice and allowed His will be manifested in their lives.

It is no wonder that situations such as drought, wars, and diseases are on the rise now because of our stubbornness and pursuing less worthy pursuits.

Since God’s will is unquestionable, sometimes things go wrong in our lives and we question His love.

In 2018 when I lost my dad, I was at a crossroads with God, questioning why He had forsaken me. But with time, I have realized He has plans to prosper us (Jeremiah 29:11) and I have learnt to give thanks in all situations because I know His will is being manifested in my life.

As followers of Christ, let us pray to God to guide us in our ways and to work in line with His will in our lives and plans.

He surely knows what is best for us and He who began the good work in us will surely bring it to accomplishment.
