Finding God’s Will.

Sooner is better than later.

Later means you were operating on your own will and God had to make His will apparent. Latter means you were not seeking God’s will, and made the wrong choices. Through failure we learn it is best to seek God’s will sooner rather than later.

God’s will can be found when we are willing to accept the truth. Accepting is not acknowledgement only, it is accepting the truth into our heart.  There is no greater truth than the truth found in Jesus. To believe Jesus is to know God’s will.

The Jews were seeking to kill Jesus for breaking their Sabbath rules and for calling God His Father. “Therefore Jesus answered and was saying to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner. For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself is doing; and the Father will show Him greater works than these, so that you will marvel.” 

Jesus knew His Father’s will and revealed it to us. We have the same Father who’s will was, is and will be as shown to us by His Son. “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. (John 14:12) Faith in God’s will needs to be received in our heart.

Jesus never justified Himself. When confronted about His teaching His answer offered proof to those with faith. “So Jesus answered them and said, ‘My teaching is not Mine, but His who sent Me. If anyone is willing to do His will, he will know of the teaching, whether it is of God or whether I speak from Myself.” (John 7:16-18) In faith, God’s children are learning His will. When we are willing to do His will nothing is impossible for our Father.

“Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20-21)

His power works within us, and He “is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we could ask or think.” So, don’t you think God is more than capable to do those things that we can think about?  Even now, in our generation, it is right that our Father be glorified in the church as He is in His Son. Ask, He answers the willing.
