God's Will for My Life

Stuart and Jill Briscoe

Sometimes we struggle to understand God’s will for our lives. Other times we understand His will, but we feel incapable of doing it. And sometimes we just plain overthink things and become paralyzed to move forward in certain areas of our lives.

But when we step forward in faith, the Holy Spirit can do His work to transform us into joyful, thankful, and prayerful disciples of Christ—empowered to follow God’s will for our lives and the plans He created for each of us.

As a believer there is a personal call on your life. This 4-message Bible-teaching series from Stuart and Jill Briscoe will help you to know who God wants you to be and what He wants you to do!

Messages From This Series:

  1. 1. Be Wise About the Will of God

    Stuart Briscoe

    Are you living for yourself or for God? That’s a great question to answer when you’re struggling to understand God’s will for your life. He really is amazingly clear about His purpose and will for the life of the believer. But finding clarity means setting yourself apart from conventional worldly thinking and sharply focusing on God’s Word.

    It’s in Scripture where God tells you the purpose for your life. He has eternal work set aside since before creation for you to do—work that blesses God and others.

    In this message, Stuart Briscoe invites the resistant, the negligent, and the paralyzed believers to step into a deeper understanding of God’s will—and discover daily, with joy, what it is He wants you to be and to do.

    Scripture:  Ephesians 5:8 - 5:20

  2. 2. The Holy Spirit of Prayer

    Jill Briscoe

    When we pray, most of us spend a lot of time praying for ourselves, our family, and our friends. Those are all good things to pray for. But there’s much more that God wants us to pray about.

    Prayer allows us to interact with all three members of the Trinity at the same time and be an active participant in helping to accomplish God’s will.

    In this message, Jill uses the story of the widow and her little pot of oil from the Old Testament to show us how to let the Holy Spirit guide us in our prayer life so that God’s purposes are fulfilled in the world and in our lives.

    Scripture:  2 Kings 4:1 - 4:7

  3. 3. What Do You Want Me to Do, God?

    Stuart Briscoe

    How does God want you to live your life? Although you don’t have to do anything to earn His favor, God still desires you to live in a way that glorifies Him and brings honor to His name.

    In this message, Stuart Briscoe takes you to Romans 12:1-2 to share what exactly God wants you to do with your time on the earth. And as you step out in obedience—by the power of the Spirit—you’ll experience the richness and fullness of the life God has for you.

    Scripture:  Romans 12:1 - 12:2

  4. 4. Finding God's Will for Me

    Jill Briscoe

    “What is God’s will for my life?” It’s a serious question that is asked by believers of all ages facing all kinds of decisions and uncertainty. As Jill Briscoe explains, you cannot know the will of God until you find God and get to know Him personally—or at least slow down long enough for Him to find you! 

    God does not intend for His will to be a mystery to us. In fact, He makes it perfectly clear in His Word. What can we learn from the stories of the Bible... from how Jesus handled certain situations? A great deal! 

    Through this teaching, you’ll learn how you can know God’s will for your life and then begin to apply it in practical ways. Are you ready to surrender your plans if it means you will accomplish His?

    Scripture:  James 4:13 - 4:17 , Philippians 2:13 , Romans 8:27
