THE ART OF HEARING-THE PEFECT WILL AND THE IMPERFECT WILL OF GOD

THE ART OF HEARING-THE PEFECT WILL AND THE IMPERFECT WILL OF GOD

Scripture: Romans 12:2

…that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and PERFECT, WILL OF GOD.

Reflection.

The will of God can be described as perfect or imperfect. The imperfect will of God is called imperfect because it has the semblance of the true will of God but is not really what God wants.

The perfect will of God is the complete, mature, and full will of God. The imperfect will of God is what God allows men to do even though it is not His first choice for them.

The Perfect Will of God

1. The perfect will of God is the place where God really wants you to be. God is pleased with you when you are in His perfect will, and He is excited when your name is mentioned.

2. In the perfect will of God you are excellently positioned, fitting exactly into the original plan of God.

3. In the perfect will of God, you perfectly meet the needs for which God designed you.

The Imperfect Will of God

1. The Imperfect Will of God allows His children into the imperfect will because of their rebelliousness and rejection of His original and perfect plan for them.

2. When you are in the imperfect will of God, God is not really pleased with you. He is just accommodating you, being patient with you and giving you time to repent.

3. In the imperfect will of God you may seem to have God’s favour, but you are incomplete in your service to the Lord and not fulfilling God’s original purpose for your life.

4. The imperfect will of God is the place where you are inappropriately positioned and unqualified for your job.

Moving from the Perfect to the Imperfect Will of God

All through the Bible, you will find examples of God allowing men to do what they wanted to do even though it was not His perfect will for them. Most of the time, God’s people were full of rebellion and hatred for the perfect will of God. Instead of passing an immediate judgment, God would allow His people to stray into His imperfect (inappropriate, improper, unacceptable, non-ideal) will and then receive a sound and fitting thrashing for their rebelliousness!

In this message, you will discover how God allows people to have a king but uses kings to punish them. He allows people to have prosperity but then sends delusions and leanness into their souls. He allows people to build idols and then destroys them. He allows a prophet to go on a mission, but then sends a donkey to rebuke him.

Let us look at some of the examples of people moving into the imperfect will of God.

1. ISRAEL ENTERED THE IMPERFECT WILL OF GOD BY INSISTING ON HAVING A KING. 1 Samuel 8:4-7

2. BALAAM MOVED OUT OF THE PERFECT WILL OF GOD WHEN HE CONTINUED TO REQUEST FOR A CHANCE TO PROPHESY TO THE KING OF MOAB. Numbers 22:9-22 NASB)

3. THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL MOVED OUT OF THE PERFECT WILL OF GOD WHEN THEY LUSTED AFTER PROSPERITY. Psalms 106:13-15

4. THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL ENTERED THE IMPERFECT WILL OF GOD WHEN THEY FORCED AARON TO MAKE A CALF. Psalms 106:19-23

5. NADAB AND ABIHU WERE IN THE IMPERFECT WILL OF GOD WHEN THEY OFFERED A SACRIFICE THAT GOD HAD NOT ASKED FOR. Leviticus 10:1-2

6. ABRAHAM ENTERED THE IMPERFECT WILL OF GOD WHEN HE PRODUCED AN HEIR THROUGH HAGAR. Genesis 16:1-2

7. THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL MOVED OUT OF THE PERFECT WILL OF GOD WHEN HE ALLOWED THEM TO DIVORCE. Mark 10:2-9 (NASB)

Remember that in the perfect will of God, you fit into His original plan for you. His original plan was not divorce. God allowed it because He recognized that the people’s hearts were hardened. God may seem to be allowing certain things in your life and ministry. Perhaps it is because your heart is hardened.

Pray.

Dear Lord! Please, help us to be in your perfect will, amen.

Please share!
