Do you ever get a sinking feeling when you think about God's will? Do you assume it will be contrary to your own?
The Bible says God's will is "good, pleasing and perfect"? (Romans 12:2 b) That means good, pleasing and perfect not just to God, but to us.
Clearly, there are times when things don't go our way, that is, in our human understanding. But if we could be where God is, and see what He sees, I truly believe that we would choose for ourselves even the worst trials that come into our lives. That's because their purpose is big ... huge ... grander than we could imagine! (2 Corinthians 4:17)
Yet it is more important to realize God's tender heart. Everything that He wants us to do, everything that comes our way, has first gone through his filter of love. He absolutely desires what is good, pleasing and perfect to come about in our lives. (Psalm 27:13-14) There is nothing to fear about God's will.
