How often do you begin your day asking yourself what the Father’s will is for the day ahead? I must confess I rarely do. My head is usually full of all of the things I have planned for the day and what I want to accomplish. But that is not how it was with Jesus during His earthly ministry as He set for us the perfect example of being in the Father’s will.
Jesus came to do the Father’s will. Jesus came to earth to testify of His Father’s will and to reveal Him and His love. He did this in both word and action.
There is wisdom in following the will of the Father in that this leads us to a place of stability despite the uncertainties of this life. The result is peace, safety, and security. That is why He is described in the Scriptures in terms of being our rock.
This is a look through the Word of God at the topic of the Father's Will
As God’s children, He has placed in us the desire to do His will. He has given us a new heart, a new will, and new desires to please Him through His Spirit coming into our hearts, if we are born of His Spirit. Yet we find within us a conflict, because the enemy accuses us, twisting our motives and our understanding of God’s will.
In our lives, we have a hard time accepting God’s will over us, even though it is good for us, because our sin-nature is self-centered, self-willed, and narcissistic. Like young children, we are predisposed to care only for our immediate desires and wants, regardless of whether they will cause others harm or harm us later.
