Steps to Know God’s Will for Your Decisions in 2020
2020 the year of DECLARING
We saw the Jewish evaluation is the word
PEY – Peh
- To decree
- To create
- To declare
- To bind and lose
In this year of pey, we are to declare and receive our inheritance, shift our focus (vision) and speak life daily into the areas we live and minister to.
- Sphere of influence
2020 The Year of …. Declaring God’s Word in and through your life
We began with…God’s declaration (promise) over you in 2020
2 Cor. 11:14
The thief (enemy) comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
In the last days, Satan will change himself (deception) into an angel of light (truth).
Last time we looked at… God’s Commitment to Us in 2020
- The next area that I want us to look at is essential in 2020
- To move In the power of the Holy Spirit and to seek the breakthrough the Lord has for you in 2020
- To know what is God’s plan for you in 2020
- It is the Christian advantage and the very basis of our connection with the Lord.
- It is an area that brings us confidence and security in the very daily issues of life.
- AND YET it is rarely received in the full measure the Lord has for the Christian.
Let me make an important foundational statement:
To be blessed and Effective for God
God Honors/Blesses ->> His Will
That’s why we pray
“Thy kingdom come Thy Will be done on earth as it is in heaven
God can only Bless what He can Bless

I want us to look at
God Declaring To You In 2020
Our goal is So we can move from “Can you hear me now?”
“You Can hear me Now”
Over the years the No. 1 area I deal with in counseling is requests about God’s will
“Does God really speak to us”
“What is God’s plan for me?”
“Is this of the Lord?”
“Is God wanting me to do / not do this?”
“Is this the Lord, me, or the devil?”
“What is God saying?”
“What is God’s highest for me?”
“How do I hear God?”
Let me say:
“I can give a person a fish and feed them for a meal
But if I teach them how to fish I can feed them for a lifetime”
- 90% of people regularly feel that it’s difficult to hear God
- 98% of people say sometimes it’s not clear whose voice their hearing
- 100% of the people have had difficulty determining His will at times
Some Reasons why people don’t hear God
- They don’t know how to listen
- Unfamiliar how God speaks
- They don’t know how God sounds
- Fear (might make a mistake)
- Blockages (sin, disobedience, unforgiveness, only want to hear their answer )
- They don’t give God an opportunity
- They do not know God desires to speak
- They don’t realize God speaks in many ways
Bottom Line in Receiving from the Lord
He Knows Best
Good is one too many 0
Ps 25:4-5 Show me your ways , O Lord, teach me your paths;
guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
Prov 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him,
Isa 55:8-9 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,“ declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than
the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my
thoughts than your thoughts.
Let’s look at:
Hearing and Knowing God’s Will in 2020

The Word says
In 2020 His voice will be
Personal (not just general)
Rehema not just Logos

Psalm 25:12 To those who seek the LORD? He will speak to them and show them the path they should choose.
The Word says In 2020 His voice will be:

God’s direction is not confusing
Ps 5:8 You Lead me in the right path, O LORD, You tell me clearly what to do, and show me which way to turn.
- Correct (not full of mistakes)
Hit and miss

and lead me on the right path to life
- Unfolding ( not the whole picture)

The bottom line according to scripture..
You’re not out there to make decisions according to circumstances.
The Lord is standing by to direct in every step of His plan for you and your ministry In 2020
- Continual (will never stop)
Isaiah 58:11 I will always show you where to go. I’ll give you a full life in the emptiest of places

The Lord wants to release His will daily and direct YOU in the details of your life in 2020.
God wants us to hear Him more than we do
“My sheep hear my voice”
