That Thou Shouldest Know His Will

by Chris Kemp

“And he said, The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth” (Acts 22:14).

Friends, Paul could not share what he didn’t know. Before Paul could tell all men about the will of God, he first had to learn the will of God. This may explain why Paul seems to “disappear” for three years into Arabia after his conversion (Galatians 1:17-18). The apostle later stated that abundant revelations were given to him (2 Cor. 12). This could have taken place during that three-year stay. All in all, Paul was told by Ananias that he should know the will of God.

Likewise, we should know the will of God. “Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is” (Ephesians 5:17). If we are not understanding of the will of God, we are ignorant and unable to share it with others. According to 2 Timothy 2:2, one must first be taught before he can teach others. Jesus wants us to come to Him for learning and rest (Matthew 11:28-30). One cannot truly enjoy rest if drowning in ignorance!

God wants us to know His will and to share it! How are we doing?

"...upon this rock I will build My church..." Matt.16:18
