Logic has become a popular term in our day that goes by many different names. It has become the culmination of acquired knowledge, wisdom, and the result of many hours of research. It has also been referred to as a sixth sense, the receiving of a gut feeling, or the expression, “it makes sense.” Logic contrary to what we call it allows humanity to make their many choices in life, which is always a gamble that can cause tremendous suffering when wrong choices are made. Although we make hundreds of decisions every day, there are a few that could have profound consequences if the wrong decision is made. Unfortunately, those consequences are not always immediately observable as we see through a glass darkly, limited by time and space (I Corinthians 13:12). Most will do all their homework, run the numbers, and have even done their research, but for fallen humanity, it’s always a gamble. Granted, some of fallen humanity doesn’t even bother doing any kind of research but allows their felt needs to direct their choices in life, even if they know it’s wrong or costly. When humanity removes God from their decision-making or just pays Him lip service, then the consequences can be devastating. So, it’s essential to understand God’s will even if it’s beyond logic.
Unfortunately, we live in a world that has completely removed God from their decision-making by following the spirit of Antichrist. The spirit of Antichrist tells them that they have the power within themselves to make the correct decisions. They are told that all the information is at their fingertips. The spirit of Antichrist says we can have the proper discernment by weighing all the facts. Many of the facts examined are outrageous lies, half-truths, and propaganda or conspiracy theories circulating on the internet. Therefore, discernment becomes a self-imposed logic. This type of thinking has created think tanks of learned men and women that will also examine the history, often changed, the psychological profiles of nations or cultures, and world economics to determine the best course of action for the world to take in its decision-making. Again, God is completely removed from the equation, or He is simply paid lip service by allowing Him to validate their decisions. The will of God is no longer required or sought by most of humanity. Although some Christians may sincerely say that they want to follow God’s will, they are at a complete loss on how to understand it and without understanding His will, then it cannot be effectively followed.
Logic and all that it entails will not allow us to understand God’s will. If you have all the facts that can be observed, you still will not understand God’s will. Without understanding God’s will completely then it is impossible to make the right choice. To understand God’s will, we must look beyond logic by stepping out in faith. If we sincerely pray seeking God’s will, then He will impress His will upon our hearts through His still small voice. The good news is God’s will for our lives will not violate the Holy Scriptures, which is our standard for all of time. God’s will may seem illogical because we cannot see all the facts. Simply put, we cannot see the future, which could adversely affect our decisions. God can see the future because He is already there. Jesus Christ said I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning, and the end. In my personal journey, I have followed God’s will even when it did not appear to be the logical choice. I followed God’s will even if my research told me otherwise. I followed God’s will even if it was against my heartfelt desire. I trusted in God’s loving providence to work out everything to the best for His chosen children. I trusted God because He has shown me multiple times that His will was the best choice even if it was against our human logic.
So, God’s will is truly beyond logic. If we can no longer trust our instincts or our time-honored research, then how can we determine God’s will? We must learn how to listen to the Spirit who will always put us on the right path. Although we may not immediately arrive at the proper choice, we are now on a path keeping in step with the Spirit until the proper choice becomes evident. This is very important to allow God through the Spirit to lead us to the right decision. This is the hardest part for humanity who pridefully wants an immediate decision without waiting. Even many believers have no desire to follow the Spirit one step at a time waiting patiently for God to reveal His will. Most want immediate gratification even if it leads to the wrong decision. On the other hand, if we keep in step with the Spirit, then we soon realize that God opens new doors giving us a completely different perspective. We begin to see things that we never saw before. Also, when we keep in step with the Spirit, He brings to our memory certain Scripture texts that will shine a bright light into our souls, either to validate or nullify our decisions. Every step of the way God will reveal His will in His time and not ours (Isiah 55:8-9).
The Bible says, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:2). This takes time. It’s a process. One step at a time we move closer to God allowing Him to transform us by renewing our minds. We are no longer locked into time and space, but we understand that there is a much bigger picture that encompasses all of time. We begin to see everything from a new perspective. Decisions are no longer based on only what we see but on God’s will who knows the future. So, if we can’t see the future, which we can’t, then it always takes faith, believing God knows best even if it seems illogical at the time. In my journey, I have stepped out in faith many times even when the decision seemed illogical, and have been greatly blessed with what I have termed as God’s little miracles. It would be easy to fill up an entire book of these little miracles, but one will suffice. Early on in my ministry when finances were tight, we were faced with a decision about purchasing an expensive new tire (that was not quite the right size, because of its unavailability) or trusting God to make the trip with our old tire. Well, we prayed and trusted God to make the long trip with the old tire, and halfway to our destination the tire blew out, but to our amazement a service station was spotted in the middle of nowhere that had the correct size tire at a much cheaper price. All glory to God for His perfect will.
Dear children, if we trust in God’s loving providence to always lead us to make the right choice, even if it seems illogical at the time, then all of our anxieties will be exchanged for peace that defies understanding. Think of the times in your life when you said, “if I had only known, then my decision would have been different.” God knows, so this should motivate us to always follow His will. Now, let’s take this to a higher level that deals with the entire world and not just our personal choices. Prophecy sheds light on the choices of an entire world. New Testament prophecy is meant to give God’s children direction in every age from the first century until now. The prophecy is not static for only one time in the future, (often misunderstood by the lukewarm church), but is dynamic for the entire end times. So, what does the Revelation prophecy tell us? In every age, there has been the spirit of Antichrist leading God’s children astray to trust in their own logic while the prophecy warns the world that the consequences of their sins are increasing exponentially through world wars, natural disasters, and global pandemics. The spirit of Antichrist has blinded humanity into believing that they have the power to defeat the enemy in their proxy wars, to stop the pandemics by engineering our DNA, and to stop global warming with their latest decisions. Yet, humanity misses the only solution, which is following the will of God through global repentance. For the world, this seems illogical, so they will reject the will of God and suffer the consequences of world war and complete devastation. Dear children, God’s will is beyond logic. The world must repent now by following God’s will exclusively or face Armageddon.
Let us pray: “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10).
