Jeremiah 29:11-13Unlike God’s “determined will,” His “desired will” isresistible and conditional. We have a choice to do thingsour way or His. The Lord designs a specific plan utiliz-ing a believer’s unique gifts and talents for the king-dom. He wants to share His desired will so that we can live successfully.First, God wants us to follow the moral laws, like the Ten Commandments, which apply to everyone.Throughout Scripture, we find principles that can add joy and meaning to our lives, such as the instruc-tion always to give thanks and put aside bitterness in favor of forgiveness.(1 Thess. 5:18; Eph. 4:31-32)Following those basic principles lets us discover the second part of God’s desired will—His intentionsfor our personal life. One good example is vocation. Before our birth, God predestined us to have specificskills, talents, and spiritual gifts, which suit us for certain types of work. Our vocation may change, butwith divine guidance, our work will consistently “fit” us.Finally, God’s desired will is active in our daily life. What interests us interests Him, no matter howtrivial. For example, we’ve all sent up desperate prayers when we couldn’t locate something we needed.Often we find the object within moments because a caring Father leads us right to it.The Lord wants to work in our life, and He’ll send blessings if we follow Him. Remember, He’s a lovingFather; what’s more, He is all-knowing and all-powerful—that is an unbeatable combination, no matterwhat comes against us. It is impossible to get less than the best when we do things His way.
