Part 1: Dedication to the Will of God

 

Introduction

  • God’s will refers to His purpose for the life of a believer.
  • The best place in the world to be for any of us to be is in the middle of God’s
  • What brings God most pleasure? His perfect plan!
  • The best strategy in seeking God’s will is to pray in surrender to it(will) from the onset. Pray like Jesus: “Not my will but Yours be done.”

 

Rom 12:1-2 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

    • We need to align our goals with His kingdoms goals for our lives to flourish.
  1. God’s Will is for Christ to be Lord in every area.
