Live According to God’s Will and the Lord’s Will

John 6:38-39

For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those He has given me, but raise them up at the last day.

Proverbs 19:21

Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.

God’s Will is what God has planned, and it is His heart. The purpose is recorded in the Bible as a revelation to His Will. God will surely fulfill His purpose. If His purpose isn’t fulfilled, it will be a loss for God. Each person has their own will, but that is the will of an individual. We need to realize, understand, and live following the Will of God, that is, the Will for all mankind. The one sent by God is the only person who knows the Will of God. The Lord does only according to God’s Will and he delivers that Will to mankind. We must always think about the Will of God and never forget the Will as we live our daily lives.

God’s Will

God’s ultimate Will is the Purpose of Creation. We were created to become God’s counterparts of love. Therefore, the essence of God’s Will is love. Once love is shattered, the Will is also shattered. 

The Word of God always prevails, so when Adam and Eve failed to fulfill God’s history because they disobeyed God’s Word, the love between them and God was shattered. Adam and Eve didn’t keep the one and only law given to them and thus could not fulfill God’s Purpose of Creation.

God’s Will is a step by step process. There is no shortcut for God’s history. Just as we grow little by little and improve ourselves gradually, God’s history develops in a similar way. God always carries out His Will in the place where the “sun is rising” (i.e., the new history). The older histories are the places of the “setting sun,” where God will not fulfill His ultimate Will. Once the time period has grown and people have matured, God reveals His ultimate purpose to the one sent by God.

How do we succeed within God’s Will?

First, we must make our hearts strong by focusing our minds. By strengthening our hearts, we raise the level of our faith. So just as a diamond’s value is determined by its hardness, we must have strong hearts when it comes to loving God. To receive strength, one must believe in God’s Word. And by concentrating on a task that is within God’s Will, we become divine.

Second, each person must develop their skills and individuality according to God’s Will and be able to focus their mind to utilize those talents. We must be satisfied with the skills we possess and not obsess over trying to be like somebody else.

At the same time, we must pray and ask the Holy Spirit to inspire us  so that we become people who do not reject living according to God’s Will. Many people fail to live by the Will, but God does everything He needs to do in order to fulfill the Will. If we live only for our own will, things will just end physically. If we fail to live by God’s Will, it is like a death sentence: joy will disappear, and there won’t be any hope in the eternal world. However, if we follow God’s Will, God will give everything back in return up in Heaven.

Forever in God’s Will

When we live according to God’s Will, we are happy, joyful, and full of love and grace. Within His Will, things last forever, and they are wondrous and mysterious. Therefore, God’s absolute Will must be fulfilled. The more we strive to live by the Will, the more we gain. We receive according to our efforts. We must diligently strive to live by God’s Will for the time period.

The difficulty lies in that people have their own personal wills, but in order for their own will to be fulfilled, they must first live within God’s Will. Whatever happens, we must always put God’s Will first. Apostle Paul wrote in Romans 12:2 “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (NIV). We must find the path within God; we do this by believing in and following the Word, praying, and asking the Holy Trinity for inspiration.

Living without God’s Will is like an oyster without a pearl. The Will is the treasure that each person must seek, understand, and learn. We must love God and always live a fiery and true life of faith. Then we can live being satisfied within God’s Will. Love for the Holy Trinity must not be broken. Once love breaks, everything breaks.
