“Our Father, who art in heaven”.The essential point I want to share throughout these topics is that the desire to know God’s will is the result of His much greater desire to have His children with Him in heaven. he is in search of us. he wants our life here on earth and in heaven to be maximum. As Henry Drummond has said, “The maximum achievement of any man’s life after it is all over is to have done any more with a life.”
But that means more than guidance for each day. As you shall see God’s will is that we know Him, live in an intimate relationship with Him, and as a result love, glorify, serve, and obey him. My hope is that these topics will clarify that more vividly and will also provide practical steps in knowing God’s personal will for you.
My prayer is that these topics will help you in a personal and practical way in your adventure of living God’s will.

If he made it all and gave us life; Why?
God exists in 3 persons (Triune). The triune God, has a need for others to love, care and nurture. he also has a need to receive in return love, reverence, and praise. This is reflected in our own basic nature. God created more than one of us, as he is 3 persons in one, because we have the same needs.
(Matthew 21:16)”Indeed I do,” answered Jesus. “Haven’t you ever read this scripture? ‘You have trained children and babies to offer perfect praise
