God's Will

God's Will - By Robert Pedersen

What is God's will?
This is a question that consumes a lot of people at some level.
We're taught that there is a Master plan for our life that we must discover in order to live life properly, be fulfilled and serve God.
Problem is no one tells us what it is.
So we wander through life looking into this or that supposing that God's will for us is right around the corner. We may even be praying to God in quiet desperation - asking for Him to reveal whatever His will is for us.
Here's the thing. We've made it up that God's will is unknown. We've made it up that it's hard to discover. We've made it up that it's likely something we don't' really want to do. We've made it up that it's a specific job or task for us. We've also made it up that it's unlikely we'll ever know for sure.
I don't believe any of that. I do not accept that God desires you and me to wander around on this earth looking for something that we can't find - like some sort of hide and seek game. No. That's not it.
Could it be that our assumptions about God's will are a bit off? More than likely!
The other day I was meditating on God's will and thinking in particular of this scripture:


Luke 22:41-43

41 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,
42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
43 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. (KJV)
Jesus's prayer was answered by an angel who strengthened him. This indicates to me that what Jesus was praying for was acceptance of the experience he was facing.
You see the human resists and the divine accepts. We tend to fight our whole lives through - making judgments, this thing is right or wrong, resisting one thing or another, resisting here and there.
That isn't God's will. That type of living robs you of peace, joy, love, happiness and all the good things you seek.
So what is God's will?
Here it is and it's so simple: Live in grateful acceptance of your life.
I can hear you now.... "That's it?" "What?"
Yes, that's it. I'm not saying it's easy to perform, but it is easy to understand - here's no mystery around it and you don't have to spend the rest of your life looking for it!
Jesus knew that the cross was part of his experience. That was established. He wasn't questioning that. He just needed strength to accept it in that moment - and he got it.
Jesus lived in grateful acceptance of his lot. That my friend is the biggest difference between a life of power and the life you and I live when we're in resistance.
Living in grateful acceptance brings peace, power, joy, love. Every good thing we could ever ask for or think about comes from living within God's will.
God's will is about a way of being not something to do.
Doing something is important only from the human perspective. Being is important from the spiritual perspective.
Being in grateful acceptance of your life is the most powerful you can be and from that place everything you do is within God's will and the perfect thing for you to do!
