ONLY HIS WILL

ONLY HIS WILL
“Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the
inheritance of the saints in light:” Colossians 1:12
“Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the
inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of
darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:” Colossians
1:12-13
“And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in
time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the
prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of
disobedience:” Ephesians 2:1-2
In every village, town, city, state or nation, there are usually two kingdoms at
play: the kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness. Colossians 1:13 says,
“Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into
the kingdom of his dear Son:”

This scripture shows that every child of God has been moved from one of these
kingdoms to the other. If you are truly saved, you are no longer in darkness but in
the kingdom of light. As light, you should not be afraid of operators in the
kingdom of darkness, such as witches, wizards and those in the cult, because you
have a greater One inside of you (1 John 4:4). If you are afraid of them, this
indicates to you that all is not well with you; there could be some cracks in your
wall, and sin might be responsible. Whatever compromises your holiness
compromises your divine security. When these operators of darkness see that
your light is shining brightly, they will withdraw and dangle carrots of temptation
at you, and if you fall for it, they will strike at you.

Moreover, the reason why God translated us from the kingdom of darkness to the
kingdom of His dear Son is because He is interested in having His will established

both in Heaven and here on earth. Although nothing short of God’s will is done in
Heaven, on earth, there is still a struggle to establish God’s will, because man
handed over control of the earth to the kingdom of darkness in the Garden of
Eden (Luke 4:5-6). As a child of God, you are therefore an agent of re-establishing
God’s will in any corner of the earth where you find yourself. If you want to
establish and fulfill God’s will, you will make no room for lies, sin and pretense.
Among God’s children on earth today, you will be shocked to know how many of
them really seek to do His will in all areas of their lives. Many of us want God to
change His plans and ways to suit ours, but that is an expectation in futility. God
does not change: He is ever the same (Malachi 3:6). As conservative as He may
appear to be, His technology in Heaven is billions of years ahead of ours on earth.
In fact, He is the One who gives our researchers, thinkers and inventors the latest
discoveries they get. Such scientific discoveries are new and news to us, but not
to those in Heaven. To them, the best we have on offer is stale news. In Heaven,
there are no gimmicks or tricks. Everything revolves around God, and He is in
control of time. When God therefore gives you an assignment, He has
expectations regarding when, where and how it should be done. If you miss out
on any of the details, you will be on your own. To what extent are you doing His
will?
Ask God for grace to know Him, and for courage to do His will in every situation.
