SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/09/15- “There’s Only One Bona Fide Will Of Papa God!” (Romans 12:2)
Premise Question: With regards to Papa God’s will for our lives, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, are there alternatives or options given to us, such as; option (A) His “good will,” option (B) His “pleasing/acceptable will,” or option (C) His “perfect will”?
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
(Romans 12:2 NLT)
Do not comply with, by trying to emulate, impersonate or imitate, the prevailing paradigm, in its fads, fashions, or standards and practices, of this age, or any age. But alter your course and actions, by deliberately choosing to be a completely different person, one that’s transformed and changed, by and through the power of Papa God, in every way and every area of your existence; in your character, attitude, behavior and even your appearance. Consistently make it your daily habitual practice to be restored and renewed continually, in your mind and heart, with Papa God’s word. Then, and only then, will you be able to test (certify) and know for sure, that the only acceptable (bona fide) will of Papa God for your life, is the one that pleases Him, which is a good thing, meaning it’s filled with His excellence and virtue; because, His will, for your life, is absolutely flawless, being perfect in every way! (Romans 12:2 PDCP)
Bottom Line: In my experience and time here on this earth, I’ve heard many different takes and presentations on this particular passage of scripture, as it relates to Papa God’s will for the believer’s life. I’ve long held a strong personal belief, a specific position and view on this particular passage and the subject matter it addresses. My view is: there is truly only one “bona fide” will of Papa God, for our lives, as members of The Company of The Redeemed! It’s the one that is completely authentic, being entirely genuine, qualified, legitimate and real and can only be accomplished fully, with the enabling help and transforming power of Papa God’s Word and Spirit having full and free reign to influence and change our hearts, minds and lives. So, here it is, my view: The only acceptable and good will of Papa God for our lives, is the one and only one, that is pleasing, pleasant, gratifying and completely satisfying to Him, and that, my friends, is perfect in every way, manner, shape and form, being His perfect will! Some may ask or say, though, what about those who’ve blown it, at some time or occasion in their sojourn in this life? Furthermore, they may muse. How could they ever have the ability or opportunity to ever be perfect once they’ve completely blown it, by failing miserably in their walk? Papa God is the God of new beginnings…He is never at a loss for words, nor is He ever surprised by anything or anyone! He is not ever frustrated to the point of exasperation, throwing His hands in the air, without a clue, as to what to do! He is not twiddling His thumbs in boredom nor is He ever wringing His hands in worry and angst! You will not ever hear, nor has He or will He ever announce, “well, I sure didn’t see that one coming!” He never sleeps nor slumbers! (Psalms 121:4) His eye is even on the smallest sparrow! (Matthew 10:29) He sees all! He knows all! (Proverbs 24:12) He makes all things beautiful in His time! (Ecclesiastes 3:11) He is aware of everything! He is never ever without the perfect plan or strategy to completely restore, renew, reconcile and accomplish His perfect divine will, plan and purpose for our lives, for His glory! He is more than able to do this, as He, Papa God, sees and knows everything from the end all the way back to the beginning! (Isaiah 46:10) He will not settle for anything less than His perfect will for our lives, and He doesn’t have to, because He will do whatever it takes, in order to accomplish His divine plan, purpose and will for His own! (Hebrews 7:25) Blessings…
