I have been in church and around “church people” all of my life. One of the things that I have observed and that really gives me a problem is when people do what they want to do and then call it “God’s Will!” (As I look back on my life, I can see times and places where I have been guilty of this and the result was I cheated myself of God’s blessing and robbed God of His glory!
It is amazing the manipulations that some of us will go through to make the outcome that we want to become reality and then turn around and call it God’s will. It may be God’s will or it may not be God’s will! The truth is: It is almost always our will!
God has a will and God has a plan for our lives, but He will never force it on us! He allows us to make decisions and choices and if we are obedient in our decisions and choices, then God’s blessings are able to flow.
Just because you call it God’s will, does not make it God’s will. I don’t want to play this game, because, I could miss out on something really special that God has for me by convincing myself that it is His will – when really it is not.
Be careful! God loves you and has an amazing plan for your life. I have discovered the hard way – just because you call it His will, does not make it His will. By playing this game, I have cheated myself and missed some amazing blessings that God had in store for me! If you think about it, you will discover that you have probably done the same!
Don’t beat up on yourself for past mistakes! Admit them, ask God to forgive you and move on in a right relationship with Him by really seeking and submitting to His will! Trust me – you will be glad that you did!
