God’s Will, God’s Way, God’s Time

Romans 12:2b

that ye may prove what is the good and acceptable, and perfect will of God.

The life of Moses has so much to offer us in the way of learning about God’s protection, provision and power. I believe that there is so much recorded about Moses because God is wanting to reveal to us how He works in the lives of people on a daily and practical basis. To me, this is one of the areas that Christians fail to comprehend and therefore, fail to avail themselves of. For this reason, Christianity has no real effect on a person’s day to day living and has no real drawing power to the lost in the world. To most people, it is only a way to miss hell and get to heaven. That is why so many don’t see a need to be a Christian now and want to put it off for as long as they can.

This is so far from what the Bible teaches. The Bible shows us that God is extremely involved in a person’s day by day life and that He has a perfect will and plan for each life. As we look at the life of the adult Moses, in the house of Pharaoh, we see that Moses tried to do the will of God and deliver his Hebrew countrymen before God’s time and in a way that was not God’s way. The results of this missing the way and timing of God caused Moses to doubt his calling and feel that he was a failure.

The same is true in today’s time. God has a plan for you. Included in God’s plan is the way that it is supposed to be accomplished and the timing in which it is supposed to come about. It is common for one to understand God’s calling for his or her life, and immediately to start to try to fulfill that calling. Their intentions are sincere and their heart is right, but they are not aware that it is just as important to wait on God’s plan and timing as it is to discover His will. As a result of this failure they decide that they must have missed God in the first place and so they resign themselves to an empty and unfulfilled life, never really knowing that if they had waited for Gods time and His way, they would have accomplished His will.

MY WORD CONFESSION: I will understand God’s will for my life and will allow Him to accomplish it in His way and in His time.
