Our Current Virtual Church Message

 The Will Of God

1 John 2:17 The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever. (NIV)

Psalms 143:10 Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground. (NIV)

Matthew 6:10 your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. (NIV)

We all have a will of our own needing to be subverted to the will of God. Our will, given its own way, leads us into adversity, pain, and suffering. God's will, if we give His will leadership in our life, leads us into His Light and love. Sickness is not the will of God. Death is not the will of God. Disease is not the will of God. Isolation is not the will of God. Imprisonment is not the will of God. Desperation is not the will of God. Hopelessness is not the will of God. Consumption by the darkness is not the will of God. The will of God is wellness. The will of God is life everlasting. The will of God is the absence of all disease. The will of God is total unity with others in love. The will of God is freedom. The will of God is unending hope. The will of God is living forever in His light. In every second of your life you can point your will in the direction of wellness, in the direction of life everlasting, in the direction of absence of disease, in the direction of total unity with others in love, in the direction of freedom, in the direction of unending hope, and in the direction of living forever in His light. Where you point your will is a choice you can make. Where you point your will is under your control. Therefore, when the darkness of sickness comes, instead of being a passive victim, point your will in the direction of wellness. When the darkness of death comes, instead of being a passive victim, point your will in the direction of eternal life with Christ. When the darkness of disease comes, instead of being a passive victim, point your will in the direction of the absence of disease. When isolation comes, instead of being a passive victim, point your will in the direction of togetherness with others in love. When desperation comes, instead of being a passive victim, point your will in the direction of God's power. When hopelessness comes, instead of being a passive victim, point your will in the direction of God's unending hope. Where are you going to point your will today? 

Thinking Points About God's Will

  • Today and tomorrow, find out what others want and help them fill these wants within the will of God.

  • Love delights only in doing good, in doing the will of God, in giving, in sharing, in extending out the power of life to others.

  • If you want to win by doing the will of God you have to know His rules and play by His rules.

  • When we think about the will of God, we already know on a minute to minute basis we are to kneel at the foot of the Cross, while displaying His love and compassion to the world.

  • Pain and love can only productively go together by the force of your will aligned with God's will.

  • You must be relentless in doing God's will.

  • We know what God's will is when we are confronted with temptation. When confronted with temptation, what we do next is crucial to show Christ how much we love Him.

  • Tragically, we tell ourselves we are doing God's will, even when we are doing not His will but our will.

  • If we exert our heart, mind, and soul we can know God's will for us on a second by second basis.

  • God's goal for your life is the same as God's will for your life.

  • You may want to do God's will when doing His will is easy, painless, and enjoyable. However, will you do His will when doing His will is difficult, painful, or life-threatening?

  • God's will is for you to give Him the primary role in guiding and directing your life.

  • Another way of expressing God's goal for you is to speak about God's will for you.

  • Fear is not always a bad thing, especially if we have the fear of opposing God's will.

  • Jesus was born to make God's will your will.

  • We can know what God's will for us is when we come to deal with other persons, when we come to deal with Him, and when we are confronted with sin and corruption.
