This weekend we continued our series, God’s Will is Whatever, a series all about God’s will, based on the verse, Colossians 3:17. So far my husband has taught us that if we walk in His ways, we will be in His will. Then we learned that to know God’s will must view everything through the window of God’s word.
This weekend we learned that God’s will is like a can of paint, the value is in the application. In other words, you have to DO it! My husband told us that we can study God’s will, we can debate God’s will, we can deliberate over God’s will, but until we actually DO what God has told us to do we won’t see God move in our lives. God doesn’t show us His will so we can know it, he shows it so we can do it.
And then the deepest level of knowing God’s will, and doing God’s will is in desiring God’s will. God wants me to want to do His will. And as I grow in my relationship with Christ, He moves me out of the duty, and into the desire. My husband said, “Delight produces desire and desire will produce decisions that duty never could.” God’s will is not about will power, it’s about delight.
This has been such a powerful, practical series. I hope you will listen to or watch this it. It was so good! You can catch it today on the Elevation Network and later in our archive. Have a great Monday!
