Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

Many of us wrestle with discovering God's will, doing God's will, wanting to know God's will. But we know a great deal more about God's will than we may at first think.

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
---1 Thessalonians 5:16 TNIV

No we don't know God's unrevealed will; we don't know so much of God's will that we still don't have to pour over God's Word in study, commune with God in prayer and in fellowship with God's people. But we do know God's ethic in his commands; God has told us the things to do, and invites us to live in faith. And here in Thessalonians we are told to rejoice, to pray, give thanks through it all: THIS IS GOD'S WILL.

"But Dale, I just wanna know God's will." I understand that, friend, and we do! Now let us be about doing it. That is God's will.
