But beware! You cannot say, “Thy will be done,” and then disobey the Word of God! The Word of God and the will of God are synonymous, never separated.
We must return to a state of righteousness or suffer the consequences of our foolish choices. If we turn our backs on God, He will have no choice but to turn His back on us. We serve a covenant God who is full of truth and life.
God is in control
What’s the difference between His perfect will and His permissive will? The perfect will of God is to fulfill the exact purpose for which God created you. His permissive will is what He will allow. God really is serious about being first in our lives. God gave us free will, but the limits of God’s permissive will kick in when we continually disobey!
I assure you that God is the same yesterday, today and forever. And He will have the last word!
No matter how much turmoil you see on the news at night, God is still in charge. He is in complete control. And He is deliriously ecstatic about what your future holds as a child of the living God!
But understand this! You will never accomplish God’s highest will for your life until you are able to pray with absolute sincerity, “Thy will be done.”
