I saw a poignant billboard that read, “God’s will is God’s Word”. I don’t believe God’s will is some mysterious thing we have to seek years to find. I believe it is right in front of us in God’s Word, the Bible. I believe that if you read and sincerely obey what it says and pray, you are in God’s will. And a step deeper in obedience is using the gifts and talents He gave you for Him by serving others and worshipping. And the rest of it is cludging and distractions. I believe firmly God is not elusive but very near, awaiting our humble prayer and obedience.
This is controversial for so many, but I believe sincere and humble obedience must accompany faith to prove it. Faith alone is like owning a cloud. Doesn’t benefit anyone until it rains. Obedience is the rain, allowing people to benefit. Faith alone is not enough to be in God’s will because His Word is so clear that once we have true faith, we exercise true obedience. And His blessings for us result from humble obedience and prayer and worship.
Our will being put under His will is the key. We decide He matters most and we want to follow His Word rather than our own desires and whims. He is God, after all. That is the crux of everything.❤
