His Perfect Will

If we fail to get want we want in life, I don't think we have failed to find favor with God, but I believe it's possible we have found something we want that God views as less than favorable. Whether it be a matter of timing, or a matter of envisioning something separate from what God has planned, behind it all, He has a purpose. That purpose may be to stretch our faith so that we can grow in the grace and knowledge of Him (2 Peter 3:18). Or perhaps His purpose could be to cultivate within us over time a Godly character that bears with greater intensity the fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22,23). So before we get caught up in what we may or may not have, let's get caught up in an adventurous, head over heels pursuit of the One whose love and affection we already do have. And in the process, I believe we'll find what we thought we were looking for all along: His perfect will.
