Living in the will of God is not difficult or complicated. As a matter of common sense, living in God's will is God's will. Surely? Why then would our Heavenly Father put it beyond the reach of any of His children? Rather, simple logic dictates that it cannot possibly be the preserve of the spiritual elite, but that living in the will of God is for everyone.
What you'll discover is that the only real obstacles to living in the will of God are between our ears. This must be so if the grace of God is always sufficient. Obeying Him doesn't rely on our own resources or abilities. Neither is it dependent on any particular situation or circumstance. The Lord always supplies what He later requires. What obstructs is an amalgam of misinformation, misunderstanding and misbelief. Lodged in our thinking and reinforced by those around us, these keep us bogged down in a veritable quagmire of unbelief. Fortunately there is Good News at hand. The Lord has provided a way out of that swamp. The Gospel is the power of God for salvation. It brings light and life, imparts faith and releases the power of the Spirit. Hence the Bible's confident assertion that those who know the truth are set free by it. The Gospel is not information, but revelation that enables transformation. The Gospel is the power of God for salvation, and it delivers.
This little book is unashamedly a Gospel "how to", with the emphasis on Gospel, because Jesus has already put in the hard yards. Living in the will of God relies on His efforts, and not our own. As the truths of the Gospel are applied, faith arises in hearts and minds are renewed. God is the initiator; we are the responders. He loved first. We love in return because we are loved.
About the Author
I came into a revelation of grace through an open vision in 2007 in which I was instructed by the Lord Jesus to “open the windows and doors of My house”. He subsequently told me exactly how to do this. “Preach the New Covenant”, He said. Today I’m a bi-vocational pastor, husband and a father. I divide my time between my pottery studio and the leadership of the eldership team of the Highway Community Church in East London, South Africa (an autonomous local church with strong relationships to a number of other grace-based congregations). I've most recently added to this CV author, blogger and occasional podcaster.
