DOING GOD’S WILL BRINGS THE BLESSING
This is a call to the redeemed to claim their portion of the fullness of the earth and even eternal life/kingdom of God.
What is the will of God?
The will of God is the intent and purpose for His Creation and His people.
These are set out in the word of God – 2Timothy 3:16, through the law – Exodus 18:15-16, through the prophets – 1Kings 22:6-7 and in the apostolic gospel – Galatians 1:11-12 (But I make known to you, brethren that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man for I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it,but it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ)
The will of God as revealed in scripture, finds fulfilment in Jesus Christ –
Prophet Isaiah captures the central aspect of the will of God “If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the Good of the Land ” Isaiah 1:19.
We are further admonished that “it is not those who shout Lord, Lord who will enter the kingdom of God but those who do the will of the Father who is in heaven” – Matthew 7:21
It should be obvious to every reader at this point that the will of God overrules human will. Proverbs 19:21;
overrules the desire of the wicked – Genesis 50:20 (who does not want to be victorious over the wicked.
According to Ephesians 1:11 the will of God is sovereign over all things and over all creation. Matthew 10:29 and also over evil-
in Genesis 45:8, Joseph recounts the evil intentions of his brothers which the will of God turned into a blessing:-
We believe that readers must begin to smell the blessings as we are all fired up to seek the will of God under every circumstance and be faithful to do it.
- Pray for the in-filling of the spirit of God since it is the spirit that knows the will of the Father
- Pray that the spirit of God will engulf you and daily keep you within the confines of the will of God.
- Pray that the will of God be revealed to you as you daily and frequently need the word of God :- for “all scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” 2Timothy 3:16-17
- Pray that the will of God be revealed to you as you go through the writings of the prophets – 1Kings 22:6-7
- Apostle Paul says in Acts 20:27 as he bids farewell to the Ephesian elders that “I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God” pray therefore that as you read the apostolic gospel the whole counsel of God Will be revealed to you.
- According to Matthew 22:35-38 God desires loving obedience from the believer. Indeed obedience is better than sacrifice. Pray for the grace to place a higher priority on obedience to God’s word than performing religious acts.
- Pray for the grace of God to be able to proclaim the praises of God because that is the reason why He called you as a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people” 1Peter 2:9
- Pray for the grace to remain holy because it is the will of God for every believer – Thessalonians 4:3
- God is love and He desires that we love one another John 13:34-35
- “For this is the will of God that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men” 1Peter 2:15. It takes the grace to observe God’s high moral standard. Pray for that grace.
- Pray for the grace of God to suffer even in doing the will of God “for it is better if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil” 1Peter3:17
- Brethren and sisters it is possible to know the will of God in everything you do if only you will inquire of the Lord. Ask the Lord daily and you will know.
