God’s Will

What is God’s will for me (you)?  God’s will is found in God’s Word, the Holy Bible.Bible-open

God’s will?

God would  that every one of us would be reconciled to Him. Our relationship with Him is restored so that we are to God as Jesus is.  This is the free, paid in full gift of Salvation.

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.__ 2 Peter 3:9

God’s will is for us to be conformed into the image of Christ. ( Romans 8:29)  We have a loving Father who cross and biblewould not withhold from us that which is necessary for our “success”.

Success? Success is being in the will of God. The safest place on Earth! lol  God gave each of us unique personality traits, natural talents and spiritual gifts that are perfectly suited for His purpose for our lives. A number of years ago, I heard a message that changed Psalm 37:4  for me forever!

Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

When I read that scripture now, it is not a promise to fulfill my wish list is, it the Holy Spirit giving me the desires, the “want- to’s” that line up with the will of God.  If we are Christians aka Christ Followers, then we don’t need to don a uniform like a sailor on shore leave.  Those that encounter us, Christians should smell a Christ-like aroma of truth and love.

Love?    Charity (Love) suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself,The word love in English with the O replaced by a yellow flower. is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things__. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 KJV (annotated)

Jesus said,  By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.__ John 13:35 KJV
