God's Will

Many of us are prone to think of God's will only as His plan for getting something done. That's why we pray, "Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven"(Mark 6:10). Getting things done may be immediate purpose of His will, but the ultimate purpose is His glory; and the glory of God is the highest purpose that can occupy the human heart and life. 
(Warren W. Wiersbe)
Those who submit to the will of God do not fight back at life. They learn the secret of yielding, of relinquishing and abandoning their own lives and wills to Christ. And then He gives back to them a life that is far richer and fuller than anything they could ever imagined. 
(Billy Graham)

"The man who does the will of God lives forever." 
(I John 2:17b)
