Could Moses part the Red Sea without God? Could the Disciples feed 5000 men with a boy's sack lunch without God? Could Lazarus come back from the dead without God?

We usually think about God intervening to make something happen, not stop something from happening. Sometimes He frustrates our efforts to accomplish His will.

Remember Jonah? He had a whale of a time running from God.

What about you? Can you think of times God empowered you to do something? Can you think of other times He stopped you from doing something?

Jonah was the CEO of his own life. He wanted to know God's will, but was unwilling to do it. Now, Jonah didn't mind hearing what God wanted. He definitely wanted the luxury of having the final decision.

Jonah obeyed God with his actions, but not his heart. He celebrated his own will while cowering to God's will.

I'm sure you are willing to experience His power in life to accomplish something. But are you willing to encounter Him to stop you from following your will? Do you want to know God's will or do you want to do Gods' will?

"Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is your spiritual act of worship." Romans 12:1
