God’s Will Is Clear

One request in the Lord’s model prayer with which He instructs us to pray is “Thy will be done.” Scripture is not mysterious when it comes to the will of God. God wants His will to be known. He wants us to do it. If you take all the passages that say, “the will of God,” and then do them, I am proposing to you that you will do the will of God, that you will be in the will of God. This isn’t a mystery. Some of what God has for you is a liberty for you. You have liberty to do certain things that are not taught in scripture. Later when the founding fathers wrote the United States Constitution, they did something like that. Whatever power was not delegated to the federal government was reserved for the states. This is the 10th amendment. Whatever is not spoken in scripture either through precept or principle are liberties. Certainly, we are guided in our liberties. You can do what you will within the principles that guide the liberties. For instance, everything is to the glory of God. You don’t have liberty to do something you want for your own glory. However, God’s will is found in scripture. It is His will for you to receive Jesus Christ, that is to be saved. God is not willing that any should perish. Your sanctification and giving of thanks are both the will of God, Paul says in 1 Thessalonians 4 and 5. Suffering for well doing is God’s will in 1 Peter 3. Look at Scripture for God’s will.
