1 peter 3:17 For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.

Heb 2:10 For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

As we are coming to the end of study of God’s will, if we look back about the will of God and His leading, one thing we can see commonly is sacrifice.  To do the will of God in our life, we need to sacrifice our fleshy desire, worldly pursuit and to make life-changing decision during the course of life. There are many who suffer, not because of the will of God but because of holding onto to their faith only. Faith when it is not executed according to the will of God, it is like a ship without the rudder and it is headed for a shipwreck.  If we are running on the course in which our Author and Finisher of faith established for us, then any sufferings that we endure will be counted worthy. If we are suffering while going in some other course other than what is set for us, then those sufferings and pains will have no reward.  Suffering that we endure according to the will of God is a tool that God uses to align us more towards His purpose. He will make Himself known to us through these sufferings and pain. When He makes Himself known to us through His desire, then we would be strengthened and we will be in a position to execute the tasks for God’s kingdom with clarity and patience.
