Transformation 25 It was not the will of God for the nation of Israel to have a human king. God was their King, but they rebelled against Him and rejected Him. They not only rejected Him but also demanded for a king to rule over them so that they could be like other nations and He had to let them have their way. This was the acceptable will of God. You should be very careful not to allow God to let you have your own way; it is going to be regrettable. God will always oppose those who oppose Him. The reason why some people are frustrated in life and have not been able to achieve anything significant is because they have insisted so much on going their own way to a point that God has no choice but to let them be. Sometimes we enter into the trap of the enemy and meet with disaster because of the acceptable will. We must guard our hearts above everything else and not allow them to reject God or depart from him, otherwise When the time comes, you will complain bitterly because of your king, whom you yourselves chose, but the Lord will not listen to your complaints. (1 Samuel 8:18) So when you get into trouble, I will laugh at you. I will make fun of you when terror strikes—when it comes on you like a storm, bringing fierce winds of trouble, and you are in pain and misery. Then you will call for wisdom, but I will not answer. You may look for me everywhere, but you will not find me. You have never had any use for knowledge and have always refused to obey the Lord. You have never wanted my advice or paid any attention when I corrected you. So then, you will get what you deserve, and your own actions will make you sick ~ Proverbs 1:26-31
Transformation 26 The moment your heart rejects God, you dethrone Him literally from your life and when this happens, you invite trouble to take over. Whatever it is you allow your heart to honor other than God, will bring you hell on earth. God will prove you wrong and He will show you that you were never after Him – your heart was really very far from Him, you rejected Him, His ways and teachings and instead chose to follow your own path. We must let God be God and let Him have His way. ‘Sometimes a way seems right to a man, but the end of it leads to death’ (Proverbs 14:12). The perfect will This is the decreed, unchangeable, foreordained will that God has for us. It cannot be changed, neither can it be altered. This is the kind of Gods will we are all called to allow to control our lives. The perfect will of God is not a walk in the park. Its painful, the road is full of ups and downs but it is the best for us. In the end, it brings us joy and victory to our lives and glory to the name of God. This, as a child of God, is the kind of will you must seek to live in. Your calling and your entire life must be under Gods perfect will. This means knowing the mind of God for you - what He wants from you and what He wants you to do. The only way out of this will is through submission and obedience. King David sinned against the Lord when he slept with Bathsheba and let her husband Uriah killed in battle. God became angry and He sent Nathan to the king to deliver a message; David was repentant and Nathan said,; “The Lord forgives you; you will not die. But because you have shown such contempt for the Lord in doing this, your child will die” (2 Samuel 12:13-14).
