In the previous message titled as “Spiritual Attack and Defend strategies”, I have dealt with the following verses according to Paul to the Colossae:
Col 1:9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
Col 1:10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;
Looking at this in depth, we see the following aspects that he highlights:
- that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
- That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing,
- being fruitful in every good work,
- and increasing in the knowledge of God;
I feel the Lord is pressing it on my heart to explore this verse a little bit more, especially concerning His perfect will. We know that when we walk in His perfect will, you can not be anything else than to please Him, to be fruitful in every good work and also increasing in the knowledge of who God is and what His will for you would be.
BUT, the question now arises: What is the perfect will of God? Is it a general phrase or term, or is it something more specific? I would not dare to proclaim that the following insight is the only explanation for the will of God, but I am sure it would give us a pretty good picture of it. (more…)
