George MuellerKnowing the will of God • I seek at the beginning to get my heart into such a state that it has no will of its own in regard to a given matter. Nine-tenths of the difficulties are overcome when our hearts are ready to do the Lord’s will, whatever it may be. When one is truly in this state, it is usually but a little way to the knowledge of what His will is.
George MuellerKnowing the will of God • 2. Having done this, I do not leave the result to feeling or simple impression. If so, I make myself liable to great delusions. • 3. I seek the will of the Spirit of God through, or in connection with, the Word of God. The Spirit and the Word must be combined. If I look to the Spirit alone without the Word, I lay myself open to great delusions also.
George MuellerKnowing the will of God • 4. Next I take into account providential circumstances. These plainly indicate God’s will in connection with His Word and Spirit. • 5. I ask God in prayer to reveal His will to me aright.
George MuellerKnowing the will of God • 6. Thus through prayer to God, the study of the Word and reflection, I come to a deliberate judgment according to the best of my ability and knowledge, and if my mind is thus at peace, and continues after two or three petitions, I proceed accordingly. In trivial matters and transactions involving most important issues, I have found this method always effective.
George MuellerKnowing the will of God Surrender your will to God Do not leave the answer to feelings Read Scripture till God speaks See how circumstances confirm the Word Seek God to give an assurance Test the Word with a peace from God.
