God’s will is seldom achieved because we struggle with the way He wants it to be accomplished. His will, His ways, His thoughts are perfect an beyond human understanding and reason which is why we are moved by faith to the cross yet we struggle after salvation.
Everything was accomplished on the cross, and that included having a plan and purpose for your life because every spiritual blessing is made available in and through Jesus Christ. Everything has been made available, and yet we struggle. Here are some reasons why we struggle with the way God wants to move in our lives:
We think our experience has value
Our flesh rages against the soul and spirit
We desire a sense of achievement
Looking at the surface of our hearts we genuinely believe we want God’s will and the way He wants it achieved but when we look deep within, truth does shine into the darkness, and our true nature is manifested.
Unless you despise your flesh, you will never understand how corrupt it is and how it corrupts God’s will in our lives. Jesus nailed our nature to the cross, do your best to keep it dead. Obedience is better than sacrifice.
