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.
