For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:11-13
The perfect will of God
You do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2
In our daily life we are led to make decisions some could be instantaneous and others could be after much thought. Our decisions being made after seeking His will?
The word says that if our minds are renewed and are not of the pattern of this world then we will be able to test and approve that what is God’s will.
If we conform to the pattern of the world the decision that we make will be the desire of the world. This would mean that we will have to face the consequence of that decision. This is known as the permissible will of God
If we are in Him in spirit and walk in the light, we will have His mind and therefore our decisions will be good pleasing and of His perfect will.
Dear Lord help ne to understand this concept so that I do not suffer the consequences of making incorrect decisions that will cause pain and confusion in my life and that I will always be in the perfect will of you. Amen
