Based Upon John 7
There is so much confusion concerning the things of God these days. One person will say this, another person will say that. One person will say X, another will say Y. If you say up concerning a Bible principle, someone else will most certainly say down concerning the exact same thing. Unfortunately, so many have just given up, because of these subjective thoughts concerning Scripture.
I have good news, as it is also implied in the first chapter of the book of Revelation, Jesus gave a clear principle that simplifies all of this in our theme chapter: He basically said, “If you are willing to do God’s will, truth will become clear to you.” This is comforting to me, because I am not as educated as so many others, and not as bright as still others. Is this also your reality? Yet, I do have the will to do God’s will. When we submit to the will of God in our lives, things that have seemed so complex prior to our submission, mysteriously become as clear as the noonday sun.
So, here is the question you need to ask yourself today: “Am I willing to do God’s will?” The answer to this question will determine how clearly you can behold the power of God in your life, and sense His presence in all of the circumstances you face. If you find that your desire to do His will is weak, simply ask for strength in this area. Believe that you receive it, and it shall be done unto you. It is most definitely God’s will for us to experience Him more fully, so rest in that reality and that God for the abundance of His grace that will certainly follow.
