John 6:38 For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.

The daily struggle we often have is between our will and God’s will.

Our will wants to sleep around, but God’s will wants us to wait until we get married. Our will wants to hoard all our money, while God’s will wants us to be givers. Our will wants to complain, while God’s will wants us to count it all joy.

As soon as we realize that God’s will for our lives is better than our will, we’ll no longer have to struggle. We’ll see the benefits of God’s will and side with Him over our own flesh. Choose God over self.
