The Importance of God’s will

Greetings to you, dear friends, on this wonderful day! God’s mercy is renewed for us this morning. It says in the Bible: 
«Let everything that has breath praise the LORD» (Psalm, 150:6).
 If you are alive and breathing today, – it is because of God’s mercy and it is a sufficient reason to praise and thank Him.Today I would like to start talking about „The Importance of God’s will”. The Holy Scripture says: “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven” (Mathew, 7: 21). The Bible calls every one of us to have sound mind, especially in learning the will of God for his or her life. 
«Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is» (Ephesians, 5:18).
 Why is it so important to allocate some time for seeking out the will of God? Why is understanding of God’s will so necessary for a person? It is because the understanding of God’s will determine both our happiness here, on earth, and our status in the future, in eternity.We all appear on this earth because of God’s will. Thus we do not come here to carry out our plans; we are here to carry out His plans and to do His will. In the Lord’s Prayer there is a phrase: «Not my will, but Yours be done on earth as it is in heaven»; this phrase must be the motivating power for every person who has discovered the meaning of life. Otherwise, he or she will live only for his own purposes and pleasures and eventually will lose everything he has devoted his life to.For the purposes of clarity, I would like to show where there is a difference between God’s plan and God’s will. God’s will is expressed through His commandments that show a person the best way he should follow in his life to be in harmony with God.For example, it is God’s will for us to live a holy life and to be thankful (1 Thessalonians, 5:18). 
 «For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God; that no one should take advantage of and defraud his brother in this matter, because the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also forewarned you and testified. For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness» (1 Thessalonians, 4:3-7).
«In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you» (1 Thessalonians, 5:18).
 It is God’s will that we should be good and law-abiding citizens of our country and city, thus having an effect on those who resist God. 
«Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake, whether to the king as supreme, or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good. For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men» (1 Peter, 2:13-15).
 It is the will of God for us to witness to people about God, since we understand that God is “not willing that any should perish…” 
«The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance» (2 Peter, 3:9).
 It is God’s will that we do not conform to this world but are transformed by the renewal of our mind. 
«I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God» (Romans, 12:1-2 ).
 It is God’s will of every believer that we are conformed into the image of Jesus Christ. 
«For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren» (Romans, 8: 29).
 It often says in the Bible that God has a particular plan for every on of us. I have to say that God’s plan for our lives is not revealed to us all at once; usually it happens gradually. God does not reveal to us all the little details of His plan.We will continue about it tomorrow!May God abundantly bless you!Pastor Rufus Ajiboye
