…BUT YOUR WILL… 1

“Father, if You are willing, take this cup from Me. Yet not My will, but Yours be done.” Luke 22:42 (Berean Standard Bible).
 
Every inventor has an intention for his or her invention. Nobody creates or invents a product without a purpose. The inventor programs his or her invention to function according to the intended purpose.
 
For example, different types of vehicles help us to facilitate varieties of daily tasks. Imagine using four to six wheelers for water communication.
 
For water communication, we use boats and vessels. Unless there is an improvement of the programming of wheelers.
 
God is the creator of the universe. He made man and designed Him for the good pleasure of His will. (Genesis 1:1; 27)
 
The difference between man and all other created things is the components which make man.
 
And one crucial item within man’s being that gives him a sense or ability of independence is THE WILL.
 
Man is not an outgrowth of an existing creature. Man is a grand designed work of the Creator. God was intentional about how He wanted man to be.
 
God made man to be the crown of all His creation. He didn’t make man to be chained or locked up in a mechanical design and pattern of living. He made man to have the ability to decide and to choose. 
 
Of all of His creation, God said to Himself (at the Divine Council):
 
“Then God said, “Let Us (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) make man in Our image, according to Our likeness [not physical, but a spiritual personality and moral likeness]; and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the cattle, and over the entire earth, and over everything that creeps and crawls on the earth.” Genesis 1:26 (AMP).
 
For man to have the moral likeness of God, it was necessary for man to share in the ability or power to make a choice. This is the power of the Will of Man. God gave man a will that by that will, man can decide for himself how he wants his life to be lived.
 
This reveals the kind of relationship God wanted to have with man. God didn’t want His relationship with man to be based on chain-of commands. He wanted to have a fellowship of love and life with man. Which means man will not obey the commands and will of God mechanically but organically. Man has to choose to walk in the will of God or to walk in His own will.
 
This makes the relationship God wants to have with man to be authentic and organic. It has to be an authentic interdependence.
 
God is love and doesn’t want to impose His will on any man. 
 
Ultimately, the essence of the universe and all creation is according to the good pleasure of God’s Will. Therefore, in as much as man has the power to function according to his own will and to make his own choices, His true fulfillment of life finds absolute expression in the GOOD PLEASURE OF GOD’S WILL.
 
God wants man to willingly accept to walk in His ultimate WILL.
 
Even when God became man (Jesus), He has to decide between His Will in time or His eternal WILL. And by the grand design of God’s eternal will, He has to become sin to terminate the nature and power of sin. (John 1:29; 2 Corinthians 5:21). This was going to separate Him from His eternal nature and reality for a moment.
 
The question is:
 
– Was God going to go by His will in time (not to yield to the burden of becoming sin and the momentary separation from His nature)?
 
– Or He is going to yield to His eternal plan and will which was established from the foundation of the earth?
 
(See Acts 2:23; Revelation 13:8)
 
Though God gave man the will to make his or her individual choices and decisions; in the heart of every man, God has woven the desire of His plan. He has put a longing for eternal fulfillment in every man’s heart. 
 
“He has made everything beautiful and appropriate in its time. He has also planted eternity [a sense of divine purpose] in the human heart [a mysterious longing which nothing under the sun can satisfy, except God]—yet man cannot find out (comprehend, grasp) what God has done (His overall plan) from the beginning to the end.” Ecclesiastes 3:11 (AMP)
 
So man also at every point, may have to choose between fulfilling their own desires and will or God’s eternal desire and will.
 
You have to make a decision whether the life you have will be lived according to your will or God’s Will.
 
You have to come to a point to say, YES I HAVE THE POWER TO CHOOSE WHAT I WANT, YET NOT MY WILL BUT THE WILL OF GOD.
 
Selah
 
DIG DEEPER
(Matthew 26:39; Matthew 6:10; Psalm 40:8; John 4:34; John 5:30; Proverbs 19:20-22)
 
WE PRAY
That in all things we will yield ourselves to walk in the ultimate WILL of God.
 
BIBLE READING IN THE YEAR 2023

Mark 8-9
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
– I choose to walk in the will of God everyday. 
– I refuse to yield to my will.
– Through prayer and the study of the word, I am strengthened to walk in the ultimate Will of God for my life.
– I walk in agreement with God in all things.
– I am a partner together with God.
 
Oh Hallelujah, glory!
