When is the last time you had a Will Alignment? One thing I am learning is there are many born again Believers who say we love God, but we won’t totally submit our will unto His Perfect Will. How do I know? Because I’ve been there. I am thankful for growth in this area now, but nevertheless, I have not forgotten. Don’t believe me???
Answer the following questions truthfully:
~ Has God ever told you “No,” but you did it anyway?
~ When is the last time God said “Wait,” but you didn’t?
~ Has God told you that the person you are dating is not the one He has chosen for you, yet you’re still dating?
~ When is the last time God said sow, but you didn’t obey?
Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is (Ephesians 5:17).
I find it hilarious that we believe/trust God as long as His Will lines up with what we want to do; but the moment He challenges us to submit our will unto His, we question God’s judgment. I know it sounds ridiculous, but if you are honest with yourself, you too have probably been there before.
We have such a sense of entitlement these days. We demand our way in relationships, in friendships, in churches, in families, on our jobs, even in the ways that we want God to bless us.
We need a Will Alignment. Just like with a car, a wheel alignment keeps the vehicle from pulling in one direction. This same application is necessary for our lives. We cannot afford to allow our wicked, deceitful hearts to pull us in one direction, while God is trying to guide us in a completely different direction. This is what makes many Believers look unstable.
A double minded man is unstable in all his ways (James 1:8).
Our Father Who Art in Heaven. Hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come Thy will be done in earth as it is in Heaven. I delight to do Your will, O God Your Law is within my heart. Establish my footsteps in Your word, And do not let any iniquity have dominion over me. Make me perfect in every good work to do Your Will, working in me that which is well pleasing in Your sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. In Jesus name, Amen (Matthew 6:9-10, Psalm 40:8, Psalm 119:133, Hebrews 13:21).
So, That Settles It. I challenge everyone reading this blog post to get a Will Alignment. Humbly submit your will unto God and watch how much you grow, flourish, and prosper. Allow Him to lead you in the right direction. God says it like this, “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55:8-9 NLT).
