2.God’s Will for you is to serve Him with all your heart regardless of your circumstances. (1 Thess. 5:16-18)

3.God’s Will is being done in an imperfect world, with imperfect circumstances, through imperfect people.

4.The Will of God is revealed and made known in pursuing genuine relationship with Christ not religion or rules. (John 15:4-8 TPT)

5.God’s Will is found in your wholehearted, relentless pursuit of Him. (Jer. 29:11-13 NIV)
