Your will or God’s Will

It takes Wisdom to Understand what the will of God is.

Ephesians 5:17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

It is important to separate our own desire from the Lord’s desire.

1 John 2:17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

It still takes self-denial to find God’s will.

Romans 12:1-2 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

God’s will does not include sin.

1 Peter 4:1-2 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.

Doing God’s will has eternal consequences.

Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

For over 40 years the Holy Bible has significantly influenced my life's journey. As an Air Force Captain, Electrical Engineer, Missionary to Brazil, and now pastor, husband, and father, the Word of God has been my point of reference to the real meaning of life.
