“I feel FANTASTIC today Father! So, so, so thankful for all your wisdom, for your perfect will! THANK YOU!” I wrote to the Lord.
God’s will is ALWAYS perfect! He ALWAYS knows what is best! We are called to TRUST HIM, to OBEY HIM, and to BE THANKFUL to Him.
For years, I called Jesus Christ Lord but had little to no trust in the Lord. I rarely if ever thought His will was perfect. I had minimal if any interest in His wisdom. I was anything but thankful for His will in my life let alone in the world. I was still lording it over my little life. I lived mostly for self according to the world’s ways instead of for the Lord according to His ways. I pridefully, foolishly much of the time thought I knew what was best for me not to mention for the world. I argued, debated, reasoned, fought, resisted, and rebelled against Him continually. I was so self-righteous and prideful I could barely see past myself. I exalted myself not God when it is supposed to be the other way around!
But God in His sweet mercy, unfathomably wonderful love, and exceeding patience with me led me by His Spirit who lives inside His followers into the Bible, began to teach it to me Himself and continues day by day to do so, led me to repentance for all the pride, and helps me day by day to put my trust in Him, to obey Him, and to be thankful to Him for what I now understand is His PERFECT WILL!
Do you need to do some growing in the area of trusting and obeying the Lord and being thankful to Him for His PERFECT WILL? Need to humble yourself? Need to leave the pride behind? Humble yourself, friend, oh humble yourself, humble yourself before almighty God! His will is ALWAYS BEST!
Lord, help us to deepen our trust in you! May your PERFECT WILL be done in our lives and all around the world! AMEN!
