So then do not be foolish but understand what the will of the Lord is. Ephesians 5:17.

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may approve what the will of God is, that which is good and well-pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:

Do not be foolish but understand what My Will is. The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” And the fool loves displaying only what he thinks. But I tell you to not be foolish but to understand what My Will is. I tell you to not be conformed to the world, but to be transformed by the renewing of you mind, so that you may approve what My Will is, that which is good, delightful, and perfect. In Hebrew the word translated as meaning My Will is also translated “favor.” That should tell you something. My Will for you is favorable, delightful, and gives you a future and a hope. I know the plans I have for you, plans for your shalom and not evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Obviously, I expect you to discern and know My Will by renewing your mind. Renewing your mind to what? To My Word. For where else do you learn what someone’s will is except in their word? And especially if they give you commands or clear directions. And people even leave a Will to keep giving direction after they die of what happens with their property.

Do you know My Will? It is foolish not to because then you have no idea of your purpose or of your possessions. You are My children, My heirs, and joint heirs with Christ. And parents let their children know their will.

Jesus told you quite clearly about what My Will for you who believe is. He said that He was leaving you ONE commandment. “This is My commandment, that you love one another just as I have loved you.” John 15:12. He said that all would know you for His disciples by your love for one another. John 13:35. And My beloved John later wrote, “This is His commandment, that we believe in the Name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us.” 1 John 3:23. To do the works of God, Jesus told the crowd, is to believe in the One whom He sent. John 6:29. And Jesus is the One I sent. He also told you that My Will is for unity among believers in unity with Me. John 17:21. That all would be one in Us. I was in Christ reconciling the world to Myself not counting their sins against them but imputing them all to Jesus. Jesus took down the dividing wall.

My Will is unity among the brethren. Have you never read: “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, coming down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard, coming down upon the edge of his robes. It is like the dew of Hermon coming down upon the mountains of Zion; for there the LORD commanded the blessing—life forever.” Psalm 133. Jesus told you that if you go to offer your gift at the altar and recall that your brother has anything against you, you should leave that gift and go first and be reconciled with your brother and then come back and offer the gift. I tell you to forgive others, just as I have forgiven you in Christ, and in Christ, your sins and offenses I remember NO MORE. I never bring them up because they are gone. You should do the same with others who have offended you.

There is no greater love than to lay down your life—your selfishness and self-centeredness, your trying to grab always the best portion, the parking spot, the good seat, the right of way—and think more highly of others interests than you own, so that you yield the front seats, the parking spot, the rights that you could enforce that would force others out. Life is not just about having the best over others, it is about getting the best for others. The greatest one among you is the one who serves the rest.

My Will is summed up in one word, and it is a very big word for it is who I am and I fill the entire universe and beyond. And that one word? I am sure you know it, LOVE. And love has compassion on others and desires their best interests.  I want you like Me as My dear children. I want you independently walking in love, not out of fear but out of a heart filled with compassion. Like My heart. Jesus would look at the crowds that ran after Him seeking to take what He had and His heart was moved with compassion and He healed them.

Jesus always did what pleased Me and My Will prospered in His hands. And what did He do? He went about doing good and healing all those who were oppressed of the devil for I was with Him. And how did He do it? The same way you can. I had anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and power. And I have done the same for you in Christ, and in Him I have prepared a life of good deeds and fruitful works in advance that you might walk in it. You don’t have to beg Me to show you My Will, I have already prepared it for you, you just have to walk it out by walking in love and listening to My direction in your heart and in My written Word each day. And you can start with the basics, “rejoice in the LORD always, again I say rejoice!” Rejoice each day that you have a healer, a protector, a deliverer, and that I have sealed you in Christ and made Him wisdom for you, righteousness, sanctification and redemption. Rejoice that you have a good Shepherd to lead you on right paths and a great High Priest to intercede for you and present your words before Me so I can perform them (when they agree with Mine that is). Have you never read My Will for you in Christ Jesus? Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and give constant thanks, the is My Will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18. Have you been doing this? If not, there is no need for you to be begging Me to show you My Will for your life for you are already not doing it, so how can I show you more? That is very clear, even a small child could understand it. So My Will is not mysterious. It is right there, in your heart and in your mouth. All you have to do is agree. “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.” James 1:5-8.

My apostle Paul did My Will for his life. And he had confidence that he did. He said he finished his race and fought the good fight of faith. He just forgot his sins and mistakes of the past and pressed forward to know Me more and more and follow the light I gave him each day. And he prayed for you not that you would do great works or amazing things but instead that you would know My Will and know what you had in Christ already. He wrote, “We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:9-14.

I have put in you the direction for your life, you own GPS (“God’s Powerful Spirit), I have anointed you with the Holy Spirit and power and by the gift of the Holy Spirit I poured My love in your heart. And the way you will do My Will is by working out to the physical all the love I have poured into you in the Spirit.

My Will for your life is My gift to you. Ephesians 2:10. I have given you a special and unique gift to use for ministering to others. 2 Peter 4:10. How do you invest and multiply that talent that I have put in you? By being the good and faithful son or daughter that I find busy about Kingdom business, your Father’s affairs, when I return. And what is Kingdom business? I told you from the start and I repeated it to Abraham, THE BLESSING. I bless you to be a blessing, and in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.

I love you. Be faithful in the little things and I will put you in charge of greater. Nothing you are doing is small in My eyes for I see your heart. Do not be like the worthless servant who buried his talent, that is, put the light in him under a bushel basket, and lived only in his own selfish comfort zone. Do not be like the servants who misused and abused the master’s property in idolatry, sloth, anxiety, immorality, abuse of others, cheating, stealing, and covetousness. Do not be like the rich man that stored up the abundance I gave him to bless him and overflow to every good work and  hoard it all for yourself. Do not be like the barren bush in the desert that never sees the good when it comes and just stays in a dry and empty place. Do not be like a mule that rebels and will not go as he is led. Those who are My children are led by the Holy Spirit.

My Will is My gift to you. It is My favor upon your life to do great and mighty things for you, with you and in you, like Mary said in her Magnificat. And once you begin to follow the light of My Word on your path, you will find like Jesus, that to do My Will is your delight and that My law is within your heart.
