John Hagee (August-16-2021) Daily Devotional: 1 Peter 2:15 - For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men...
What is God’s perfect will for my life? Many believers anxiously seek the answer to that question and worry that they might somehow miss it.
This simple truth frees us: when we fulfill the general will of God, He will show us the specific will He has for each of us. While some of our Bible heroes experienced dramatic moments of illumination, God’s will is more often a gradual revelation as we walk in obedience.
Consider Peter and John in Acts 3. They were fulfilling the general will of God as they went to join other believers for worship and prayer. As they strolled through the temple gate, though, God drew their attention to the lame man begging for alms. He sent them on a specific, special assignment that would forever change one man’s life.
God’s general will for us is to give thanks in every situation, to pray without ceasing, to hide His Word in our hearts, to fast before the Father, and to live worthy of our holy calling. This is the preparation, the training ground, for the specific will of God.
As we walk in His general will, we can expect divine detours as God reveals His specific will one step at a time. Every day becomes a grand adventure! What extraordinary exploit has He written on today’s calendar?
Blessing: May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May you be faithful in the small things every day, so that you are prepared for the next bigger thing that God has in mind. Be ready for divine detours and amazing adventures with Him at all times! Miracles will follow those who believe in the name of Jesus…amen.
