Bible Verse: “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”Romans 12:2 NKJV
The daily prayer, request and cry of christians is to know the will of God, isn’t this true? We want to know what God wants for us. The first thing to have in mind is that God has a WILL. Knowing the will of God can make you know his personality and preferences. You can actually know God by knowing what he wills or does.
The will expresses Gods desire, choice, willingness, habits, natural tendencies, disposition, inclination, capabilities, probabilities or injunctions. We accept the fact that Gods choices are best for us, so we knowing his will and walking in it, ensures our success.
The will of God is not limited to who you marry and where you live, it’s more than that!
Every decision we take in every moment can fulfill Gods will. Today we’ll learn what his will for us is. Remember it’s not just one but many, they all come together to Glorify his name.
1. It’s the will of God that we are born again!
“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”
John 1:12-13 NKJV
this shows us that we all can become Gods children!!! “As many as”
God never has a limit for the number of his children, he said as many as receive him, to those people he has given the power, again to those who believe and receive him him he has given the right to become his children. We were first born to our Adam father and Eve mother, but our second birth is to him who we give our Soul to. The adoption of God is by his will and not the decision of any other. Yes he wants us, Yes to be His!! It’s his will!!
“having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,”
Ephesians 1:5 NKJV
“Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.””
John 3:3 NKJV
“Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.”
James 1:18 NKJV
We must be Born again!!!!
No one can naturally perceive the kingdom of God, no one can see the kingdom of God unless, he or she is born again.
What does it mean to be born again?
Simply put, letting go of what you know or the knowledge you’ve acquired!!!
Like being Ignorant all over again ready to receive knowledge. God’s Word calls us to a “renewal” of our minds. That means trading in our old perceptions, opinions, ideas, beliefs, and self-centered attitudes for a new set of perceptions, opinions, ideas, beliefs, and attitudes that God develops in us
Being born again is a place to empty yourself to make room to be filled. There are some logic and experiences we have to let go just to be able to understand how Gods kingdom operates.
Our natural eyes can’t see or understand the kingdom of God, that’s why you can’t go back into the womb to be born again!
Even the idea of going back into the mother’s womb is absurd. It’s not a natural process if not then we can easily jump in and out of the decision. It requires boldness.
Being born and gives you the opportunity to learn and unlearn. We are able to accept and appreciate who God is and what he has called us into.
Being born again gives you the visual power to see the kingdom of God and accept his sovereignty.
“At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me.” Matthew 18:1-5 NKJV
It’s surprising how little children have a better access to the Kingdom than adults. Children are so precious, perhaps because of their innocence and their ready to learn minds. Children have less experience, their beliefs systems and ideologies are not formed yet, so they are simple minded. They are like raw materials, very essential.
The tiny ones easily fall in love but as they grow , knowing good and evil affects their choices. They become picky in decision making, accepting only what brings them benefit.
As adults, our belief systems and ideologies are already formed so it’s hard to change. So unless we are converted to have a child-heart ( innocently loving nature like children ) we can’t enter or better still, be the greatest in Gods kingdom
Children cannot be children forever, they grow, lifes challenges can cause them to stray, but it’s not Gods will for any of them to end up in eternal death. It’s not his will of our father in heaven, that we will go astray in this world. That’s why he still goes into the world to seek the lost and rejoice over them, when they are found.
We must believe him because he knows what’s best for us and WILL bring us to his saving grace, and then when we accept him, His WILL stands, Making us His!!!
Prayer: thank you Lord for making me yours, your Will is perfect, lead me daily to fulfill all you love for me to do in Jesus Name I pray Amen
