Title: Thy Will Be Done 

Main Text: Matthew 6:10 

Preacher: Pastor Paul Orimolusi 

God doesn't want us to live a life of probability.
He wants His will to be done in our lives.
However, he gives us free will.

Today's Outline

  • The will of a man 
  • The will of Satan or the enemy 
  • The permissive will of God 
  • The perfect will of God 

The Will of a man 

  • - God has given us free will (i.e. the ability to do what we want) Joshua 24.15
  • - However, The will of man is always a selfish one.
  • - Has no reference to God (Proverbs 3.5-6)
  • - Filled with pride (Is 14.12-14)

The Will of Satan or the enemy 

  • - To steal, kill or destroy (John 1.10)

The Permissive Will of God (Number 22.7-12)

  • - Half baked success
  • - It is short lived victory
  • - leads to great regret
  • - It is like a thorn in the flesh (Psalm 106.15)

The Perfect Will of God 

  • - Requires self denial (Mark 8.34)
  • - It is sacrificial (Rom 12.1-2)
  • - Always giving thanks even when we don't feel like it (1 Thessalonians 5.18)
