The Road to God's Will

Many people tell me they are searching for God's will. My question is always, "Are you willing to pay the price to know God's will or are you just looking for a fortune cookie?" Most don't know what that question means. Let me explain it.

Paul gave us Romans 12:2. He didn't know he was giving us Romans 12:2; he just thought he was writing a letter that would be distributed to all the churches. He knew it was written with an extra measure of God's grace. He told us that we could not be conformed to the pattern of this world and know God's will. We had to have a renewed mind. This mind is renewed by God's Spirit.

So, stop acting and caring about what the world thinks. Start pouring your spirit into God's Spirit. Seek Him with all your heart. When this happens you will prove God's will. This means you will be presented with God's will. You will take it on because the Spirit agrees with your spirit. You will accomplish what God has planned and this will prove in retrospect that you have done God's will. You, however, will act on it because it is God's will. Others will know in retrospect.

The price for knowing God's will: the world. As long as you are trying to please the world or are afraid of what the world thinks, you may or may not do God's will. You will ride a sea that rises and falls. You will live on emotions.

Are you willing to pay the price to know and do God's will?
