And said, “O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord?

Acts 13:10 NKJV

Continued from yesterday…

When we pray, God reveals to us His will as it is in heaven and He empowers us by His Spirit to carry out His will on earth as it is in heaven. “And see to it that you make them according to the pattern which was shown you on the mountain” (Exodus 25:40 NKJV).

“Who serve the copy and shadow of the heavenly things, as Moses was divinely instructed when he was about to make the tabernacle. For He said, “See that you make all things according to the pattern shown you on the mountain.” (Hebrews 8:5 NKJV).

From the above pictures we can see that there’s God’s will in heaven. An image, a pattern, a script, a plan, a purpose already established that now needs to be fulfilled here on earth. There’s Satan who has hijacked the running of this world from man, manipulating and frustrating God’s will for man, so what goes on here on earth is not exactly God’s will. There’s therefore the need for man to pray for God’s will to be done.

God does not force His will on man. He made man a free moral agent with freedom of choice and personal preference. So if man must live in God’s will and not simply in his own free will, it is therefore required of man to reach out to God and ask for His will for him.

God’s will is contained in God’s Word. Through the Word of God we can become acquainted with the will of God, but because there are other force at work on earth militating against the will of God, namely Satan, the flesh, world systems, there’s the need for us to seek divine intervention through prayers and walking with the Holy Spirit and the continual renewal of our minds after the pattern of thoughts fitting for God’s will.
