When the Perfect Opportunity is Not God’s Perfect Will

Did you know God has a perfect will and a permissible will? His perfect will is perfect because He is God, and His permissible will is what He allows us to do that is not His best. What happens when the seemingly perfect opportunity is not His perfect will? How can what seems perfect not be His perfect will? The answers are simple – but hard on the flesh. Just tonight I came across what seems like the perfect opportunity.

Though the Lord told me to focus on Walk by Faith Ministry and not look for an additional job “to help pay bills”, I like to look – just look, of course. But tonight I found a part-time job for which I am totally qualified, that would bring in money “to help pay bills”, that would help me meet new people in a new location where I have been hungry for new friends, that would offer a great schedule, and that would be “perfect” for networking. So just how perfect is it? Not. Not at all.

But how can the seemingly perfect not be God’s perfect will? God doesn’t operate based on what seems right; He operates according to what is right. He does not want us to make decisions based on the human flesh. We are called to make decisions according to His will because He knows what is best.

So how can what seems right not be His perfect will? What seems right is based on what we see, feel, taste, and hear with our human flesh. An opportunity can “seem right” based on our human senses. But we are called to walk according to the Spirit of God, not according to the human flesh.

So what about God’s permissible will? God has allowed us humans to make our own decisions. He will not force us to do His will. He wants us to do His perfect will because He knows what is best and wants us to walk in the fullness of His love and blessings. But He will allow us to make up our own minds and go our own way.

So right now I am faced with a decision. I can follow God’s perfect will and turn away from the temptation of the “seemingly perfect job”, or I can turn away from God and take the bait of the temptation. Who do you think is behind temptation? The devil. He would like nothing more than for me to do grab onto his bait and be lured away into the horrible consequences of disobedience.

Sometimes the choice is hard. But the answer is simple. After decades of taking the bait, I am learning to take the hand of God instead and to walk with Him, to trust Him, and to fully enjoy the fullness of His love and all His endless blessings – most importantly the gift of drawing closer to Him!

Gal 5:16  “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.”

Pro 14:12  “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”
