Marilyn Hickey loves to mentor people. She’s been a school teacher, a pastor’s wife and a Bible teacher, and she wants to pass on her mantle and raise everyone into the wonderful potential that God has for them.

Years ago, a woman mentored Marilyn, showing her valuable things that have sustained her to this day. Sharing her wisdom, Marilyn has compiled a wonderful resource, “Mentored by Marilyn,” that discusses the will of God.

It’s challenging to consider what God’s will is for you. Sometimes you feel confused and people tell you different things, your circumstances can change and your health can be a challenge. But with God’s help, you can figure it out.

Do you want to know God’s will for you? Do you want to get God’s best for your life—the plan He has for you? You need to understand that there’s the perfect will of God, permissive will of God and the overriding will of God. Sometimes God will move in a situation and override what’s happening.

An illustration of God’s overriding will is in the story of Balaam (Num. 22-24). Balaam was an iffy believer, up one day and down the next. He loved money. Balaam got a call from Balak to come and curse the Israelites. He wasn’t going to do it, but Balak offered him a lot of money. Balaam started to go, but we see the overriding will of God when his donkey gives him a hard time, crushing his foot against a wall. Balaam cursed the donkey, and the donkey talked back to him, saying, “Don’t treat me like this; I’ve been a good donkey to you.” So Balaam went to Balak and told him he would not say anything except what God said. Balaam looked down at the Israelites and instead of cursing them, he blessed them. The tribes were camped in a cross, and you cannot curse what God has blessed. (If you had a curse and gave it to Jesus and the cross, then when the curse came, the cross would have already taken it for you. So when you accept curses, you are accepting things that Jesus already took for you.) Like Balaam, you have a supernatural, loving heavenly Father who will override circumstances to get you in His will. 

One of the most exciting things about having a relationship with God is to know His will for you. You need to know the sovereign will of God, the moral will of God and His individual will for you. You’re not an accident’, ‘ you’re a divine appointment. God’s plan for each person is unique. Want proof? Read Psalm 139 to be convinced.

There are times when you think you blew it and missed God’s will. Don’t stress, God can create a new beginning for you. He can take circumstances and make them work for you, not against you. You need to learn how to hear God’s voice, get to know His Word to be directed by it and practice the power of speaking in tongues. You need to know how to maximize your day God’s way to be a high producer.

Do you want to know God’s will continually? “Mentored by Marilyn,” Volumes One and Two, will help you fulfill your calling and ministry.
