God's Will

By Barbara Mark & Trudy Griswold

In 12-Step programs, one of the Steps says: ďWe made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood him.Ē It has never been put better as to how to live a loving, spiritual life and to be the most useful while you are here on earth.

How do you turn your life over to God, to do His will, to be one of His workers, and still maintain your autonomy and purpose? How do you coincide your human will with His divine will?

Let us discuss today the difference between FREE WILL and GODíS WILL.

Free Will is a gift God has given you that allows you to choose how you run your own life. It is the choice you have as a human being to go this way or that. It is to say, I am an individual who is going to run my life the way I want to, go where I want to, and end up where I want to. It is the feeling you have when you make a decision. Should I? Shouldnít I? It is a mixture of good and bad.

Godís will is goodness. Godís will is simple and clear, once you attach yourself to it. Godís will leads you to your path and purpose. Godís will is love.

What is will? Ahhh. A hard one to answer. Your WILL is to do what you want to do. When you will something for yourself, your human concerns and desires cloud the issue. The thought ďIf it feels good, do it,Ē has taught you that your feelings are all that matter. That if you want it, go after it, with no thought of consequence.

When you align your will with Godís, you are saying, ďI donít know what my path or purpose is, God. I believe you know best. Please give me the wisdom to want to do what you want me to do. Show me the way.Ē Your will together with Godís will is to be aware of outcomes. You want the best for the whole, not just yourself. You become aware of a greater good than your own desire.

That thought frightens you, does it not? You are afraid that if you turn your will over to God he might lead you in a direction you do not want to go. You want to choose your destiny and make your own plans. You want to be a teacher, or a computer programmer, or an opera singer, and you are afraid God will say no, is this not true?

That is the FREE will part of the gifts God has given you. You chose what you desire to do, but HOW you do it and to what purpose, turn that over to God. Let Him lead you into your greatness. The talent to be what you desire was in you before birth, God will help you, through His divine assistance and Will, to make the most of it.

Yes, it works together. Free Will and Divine Will are two halves of a perfect whole.

Faith Builder:
Think of your greatest talent. Then turn it over to God to make the most of it.
