Ephesians 5:17 “Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.”
As a Christian seeks to understand the will of God, he must continue to:
1. Walk Circumspectly
Ephesians 5:15 “See then that ye walk circumspectly...”
That is to walk exactly, accurately, and diligently according to the Word of God.
Keeping in mind that God is watching will help a Christian to be in line with God’s Word and desire to live it out in this world.
Proverbs 5:21 “For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.”
2. Walk in Wisdom
Ephesians 5:15 “… not as fools, but as wise, “
Jesus said that a foolish man builds his house upon the sand; this is a man that hears the Word but does not live it; but He said a wise man builds his house upon the rock; this man hears God’s Word and lives it.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon once said “Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. To know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom.”
Proverbs 4:7 “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.”
Knowing God’s Word is one thing, but doing it is another!
3. Walk in the Spirit
Ephesians 5:18 “And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;”
To be filled with the Spirit is to be controlled by God; allowing God to take every thought captive, direct each step, and be willing to surrender all decisions according to the will of God.
This means that God is the manager of your life, and when He points out something in your life that needs changing, you change it; when He pulls you up on a sin that you have committed you confess it and forsake it; when God touches you to meet a need, you meet it.; when He calls you to do something, you do it. Something or someone is controlling your life, and if you desire to have God’s will fulfilled in you, then you must be filled with the Spirit.
Galatians 5:16 “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.”
In Christ Alone,
