That brings me to this, a David Platt tweet on Tuesday. The most popular question: How do I know God’s will? A more pressing question: Will I obey God’s will? What a great comment. I have known the big picture will of God most of my life and simply failed to obey it. Not so much failed and chose, really. I am one of those people who want to know the will of God…as long as it works within my parameters of what I want to do. “God, let me help someone today.” “Uhh, God, is there anyone who looks and dresses more like me I can help? I don’t know how to talk to those people and they are dirty and stink.” “God, do something powerful in my life today.” “Uhhh, God, I didn’t mean anything that could make my life/income/retirement/free time/beliefs more difficult.”
Will I obey God’s will? Regardless of the cost?
Grace and peace to you.
