Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

Aligned to God’s Will
by Charles R. Swindoll

The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, 
and he who is wise wins souls.
Proverbs 11:30

If we were asked to respond with yes or no to the question, all of us would say, "Yes, I want to know [God's] will." 

But doing God's will is another matter entirely, because almost without exception it requires risk and adjustment and change. We don't like that. Even using those words makes us squirm. Experiencing the reality of them is even worse. 

We love the familiar. 

We love the comfortable. 

We love something we can control—something we can get our arms around. Yet the closer we walk with the Lord, the less control we have over our own lives, and the more we must abandon to Him. 

To give Him our wills and to align our wills to His will require the abandonment of what we prefer, what we want, or what we would choose.
