The more I grow in Christ the more I want to be in GOD's perfect will. I love knowing that the way I am living my life is pleasing to HIM! Romans 12:2 says 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.
A few years back GOD allowed me to walk in his "permissive will". This is the time in my life where I made a big decision that was not in GOD's "perfect will". I knew in my spirit that I was making a mistake but my flesh said otherwise. I paid dearly for that and even though GOD kept me during that time (singing it was HIS GRACE and MERCY that kept me) HE still allowed me to go through.
The best part of walking in GOD's "permissive will" is recognizing that you are not aligned with GOD and repenting (hallelujah)! I am so glad that we serve a forgiving GOD! I am glad that HE heard my cries. I am glad that even though I was disobedient to HIS will that HE still blessed my mess.
Today as I live my life I go to GOD about EVERYTHING! I seek HIS guidance in every area of my life. GOD has a purpose and plan for my life for HIS good and glory. Isaiah 48:17 says his is what the LORD says your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: I am the LORD your GOD, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.
Today ask yourself if you are living a life that is pleasing to GOD?
Do you ask HIM what HIS will for your life is?
If not I challenge you to read the following scriptures:
