“Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing” (Psalm 143:10, NLT).

Christians spend a lot of time and energy wondering if they are in the will of God, how to do his will, or what his will is for their lives. The one is unique who hasn’t had questions regarding decisions with long term effects.

God doesn’t want us to worry about his will for us or to flounder around, always anxious and unsettled. He has given us his Spirit, who teaches and leads us in the will of the Father. He is the ultimate teacher, who really cares if we learn, how we learn and what we do with what we’ve learned. May we all be good students and eager followers of his gracious Spirit.
