Psalms 119:105 "The Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path."
This world is in darkness and out path lies through it. There is an old saying that "Where there is a will there is a way." For us as believers the will is the Will of God. As we seek His will He will show us the way and direct our steps.
Acts 2:23 "Determinate counsel & Foreknowledge"
Ephesians 1:5, 9, &11 "The counsel of his will"
Romans 8:28 "All things work together"
While God has revealed a general over view of His will, his plan and purpose, the redeeming of his people to himself and the judgment of the wicked; He has kept secret his detailed will for our individual lives and only reveals that to us a step at a time. At night in the woods a lantern only reveals a small patch of the path the rest remains hidden by the darkness.
Matthew 7:7 "Seek and ye shall find"
We must seek through prayer and the study of God's word to know God's will and to determine our direction (choice)
Psalms 136:16 "Lead his people"
Isaiah 43:19 "A away in the wilderness"
Our wills and God's will become one and the same!
John 17:15-26 "One with God"
