What is God’s will? How can we live in accordance with God’s Will?
C.S. Lewis explains: A quite sensible mother would say to the children; ” I am not going to go and make you tidy the school room every night. You’ve got to learn to keep it tidy on your own.” Then she goes up and finds the teddy bear, and the ink, and the french grammar all lying at the grate. That is against her will. It is her will that she has left the children free to be untidy.
This is not her will, but her will made it possible. This is the same as how the universe works, and which God created all humans to have free will. Unfortunately if a person is free to be good, we are also free to be bad. Free will therefore makes evil possible. It is also the only thing that makes love or goodness possible or “any joy worth having(C.S. Lewis).”
The main point is God’s will for all of us we may never quite know unless we seek him: You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.” Jeremiah 29:13-14 NIV
God’s will for you is there, he has a purpose for all of us which he gave us each an option to choose. Pure contentedness through him and his will is available to those who seek him.
I have never been more content in my life than I am now. God has given me an entirely different perspective on life because of the free will he gave me. I was curious to find out what his plans for me were, and I continue to change my will in exchange for his daily. C.S. Lewis stated ” God cannot give us happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.”
You have the freedom to choose, what the author of the universe has chosen. “ Anyone who chooses to do the will of God will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own.” - John 7:17
I ask those who are willing to seek, to open their mind to the bible, say a prayer to Jesus Christ who died on the cross for your sins. Give him a chance to speak to you through his word, see what happens.
Happy Friday. God bless
