God’s Will

Remember that God’s will is not so much a function of time and place as it is an attitude of the heart.

People make God’s will harder than it needs to be. It is not primarily a device for deciding details. (Where do I live? What college do I choose? Whom do I marry? Should I drink Pepsi or Coke? God’s will is more about finding out more about God.

Jesus simply summed up God’s will for your life when He said, “And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength….[and] love your neighbor as yourself” (Mark 12:30-31). That’s it. No secret formula. No list of “pros and cons.” God’s will is essentially staying focused on God.

The details and decisions of your life will fall into place if your heart is in the right place–and that’s what “God’s will” is all about.

For God is working in you, giving you the desire to obey him and the power to do what pleases him.

Philippians 2:13
