Isaiah 30:21
And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.

John 10:27
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”


You can find examples of God allowing men to do what they wanted to do throughout the entirety of the Bible, even though it did not perfectly align with His will for those men. The majority of the time, the people of God were full of disobedience and hatred for the will of God in its perfect form. Instead of passing judgment on His people right away, God would allow them to stray into His imperfect will, and then He would give them a sound and fitting thrashing for their disobedience!

In the book written by Bishop Dag Heward-Mills, you will learn how God permits people to have kings but then uses those kings to punish the people for their sins. He paves the way for people to have prosperity, but then he fills their minds with illusions and their souls with emptiness. He encourages the construction of idols by the people but later destroys them. He permits a prophet to go on a mission, but then he dispatches a donkey to reprimand the prophet when he returns.

This suggests that God does not contradict Himself by allowing people to stray into his imperfect will, as this implies that God does not contradict himself. It is His response to the disobedience, obstinacy, and defiance shown toward His good will. In the end, every man will be given what is appropriate. God’s judgments are always so precise and forward-thinking!

There are those who believe that this is an imperfect expression of God’s will. Many ministers of the gospel operate within this fallible will of God, which is the context in which they do their work. Certain individuals spend their entire lives submitting to this fallible will of God. Most importantly, it appears that everything is going well with people within the will of God, even though it is imperfect. Their ministries are thriving, and it would appear that God’s favour is upon everything that they do. However, having a lot of money and appearing to be successful does not necessarily mean that God is pleased with you.

It’s interesting to note that the majority of us are fooled by apparent favour and what other people refer to as “blessings.”  The presence of wealth and prosperity does not indicate that God is pleased with a person. The devil is known to reward those who serve him with financial gain. Satan promised Jesus that if he submitted to his authority, he would give Jesus the entire world. It is not the presence of money or anything physical that you should be looking for; rather, what you should be looking for is the presence of God and the voice of the Holy Spirit.

The Bible is replete with illustrations of God’s people deviating from either the perfect will of God or the imperfect will of God. People who are in the imperfect will of God may appear to be receiving blessings from God, but the reality is that God is not happy with these people.

Tomorrow, I would appreciate it if you could join me as we take a critical look at some examples of people moving into the imperfect will of God.


Dear Lord, we may seem to be in your perfect will, yet are in your imperfect will. Help us to first identify our location and move from your imperfect will to your perfect will rather vise-visa, Amen.
