Walking in God's Will

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2

To live the will of God, you must know what it is. The will of God is "what God intends to do in and through your life for His glory." Most of God's will is revealed in the Scriptures (Bible) and some of it is revealed piece by piece as you grow in faith and in your relationship with God ("In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.") Proverbs 3:5-6. As you seek God's will through your journey, He will reveal Himself to you. Glory! I promise you, it is the sweetest thing. When you realize God's presence in your daily living, you can truly live a life without limit. You can go from victim to victor. "I am the Lord, your God, who teaches you what is best for you!" (Isaiah 48:17) and Romans 12 tells us that God's will is "good." Do you think of the Lord's will as good? I don't know anyone who wants to keep repeating the same mistakes. God really wants the best for us when He gives us His will. You're on to something good when you find the will of God for you and when you start living in His will, your life will forever changed. God's will is the only plan for a SUCCESSFUL LIFE.

Friend, you can say you love God all day long but if you are not living a sacrificial life and start resisting temptation then how much do you really love him? Love come with certain sacrifices and you have to be willing to make them. The will of God comes from the heart of a loving heavenly father and therefore it cannot be anything but "good, pleasing, and perfect" for you and for me. You cannot run away when the going gets tough. God created us perfectly. We have what it takes to go through trials and come out of them victoriously. We have the Word of God which is His will. "I can do all things through Him who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13

Are you going through the same issues? Are you going in circle? I don't care what you are going through today, there is a way out. Christ lay His life down so you and I can have access to the perfect will of God.

Let's pray this simple prayer: Lord, make me think about your will the same way you do. I want to love the will of God, embrace the will of God and Lord Jesus I want to submit to the will of God no matter what and Lord I believe you have the power to make it so. I trust you to be the Good Shepherd and I know you will lead me to green pastures. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Praise the Lord!
