What the Lord wants is for us -His children- to operate at a much higher level where our thoughts, words and actions are absolutely in sync with His perfect will for our lives. This is possibly only when you've learnt the secret and power of consciously spending time with Him in fellowship. Spending time in fellowship with the Holy Spirit and the World will help you know what God wants for you; it will get you in sync with His perfect will for your life.
Some have gotten into the wrong jobs, wrong businesses and even the wrong relationships because they weren't careful to recognize and follow the guidance and leading of the Spirit. Meditating on the Word and fellowshipping with the Spirit are important for you to walk in God's perfect will. Apostle Paul had a very successful ministry while he was on earth, and one of his secrets was that he spent time in fellowship with the Lord, to know His will. In 1 Corinthians 14:18, he tells us: "I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all..."
Paul spent a great deal of time praying the will of Father, in other tongues. Little wonder he gloriously fulfilled his calling and destiny in God. His life was in sync with God's perfect will. This is what the Lord wants; for your life to be in sync with His perfect will for you! He wants you to fellowship with Him through the Spirit and the Word to know His will and walk in it.
Romans 8:14 says "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God." In place of prayer and meditation there's communion; a rubbing of minds and "drinking together" with the Spirit such that you override the limitations of human reasonings and understanding. That's when you're able to discern the perfect will of the Father and walk in it! You're able to make the right choices and decisions and take the right actions.
This is God's desire for you; that you walk at a high level with Him, knowing His will, intent and purposes concerning every situation. And this is only possible as you fellowship or participate with Him through prayer, studying the Word and meditation.
Thank you Father for giving me the Holy Spirit, by whom I've been called into fellowship with you, and with your Son Jesus Christ! I'm taught, directed, strengthened and energized to know and function in your perfect will today, as I fellowship with you, in Jesus' Name. Amen!
