"It is only the continual seeking
after (with our whole heart) a "REVELATION"
of the Father's word (will)
that will cause us to be continually conformed to His will
in our thoughts, our words, and our actions...
Where with shall a young man cleanse His way?
By taking heed
and keeping watch on himself
according to Your Word,
conforming his life to it.
With my whole heart
have I sought You,
inquiring for and of You,
and yearning for You;
O let me not wander
or step aside either in ignorance
or wilfully from Your commandments.
Your Word I have laid up in my heart,
that I might not sin against You.
Blessed are You, O Lord;
teach me Your statutes.
With my lips I have declared
and recounted all the ordinances of Your mouth.
I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies,
as much as in all riches.
I will meditate on Your precepts
and have respect to Your ways,
the paths of life marked out by Your laws.
I will delight myself in Your statutes;
I will not forget Your Word"....
Psalm 119:9-16 Amplified Translation
Revelation Knowlege of God's Word (WILL)
Glenn H. Jackson
There is only one way to live the life that we are called to live in Christ - and that is according to the revealed knowledge of God's Word [Will].
It is only the continual "seeking" of the revelation of that Word [Will] with our whole heart that will cause us to be conformed to the will of the Father in our thoughts, our words and our actions.
Every child of God needs to have a deep and reverent fear of "wandering away" from the commandments [Will] of God. There are many believers who plead ignorance of God's will in order to continue on in their own selfish desires, but the time has come wherein ignorance of God's Word - wilful or otherwise - will leave the child of God "open" to extreme satanic attack in this most critical hour.
To the degree one hardens their heart towards the Father and His Word, it is to that degree that they will prevent the entrance of that Word into their heart and, thus, they will "allow" themselves to be steered by Satan into ever increasing darkness and confusion.
Every child of God must come to the place wherein they rejoice in doing the will of God more than anything else! At any given time we are going to be found doing either our own will [as the result of self-desire] or the will of God as a result of our perfect heart-agreement with Him. There are no other alternatives!
As we make God's Word our delight on a daily basis we will be kept by the Holy Spirit on the narrow path of perfect obedience, and the Father's ways will become our ways and our ways His ways. And, by the power of His Word, we shall be continually transformed and renewed in our hearts and minds - and our every "motivation" shall seek only to glorify and exalt His holy Name to the greatest degree - in any given moment.
