Is a Struggle With God’s Will Also a Struggle With Faith?


Reinhard Bonnke - Story Photo - FacebookRenowned Pentecostal evangelist Reinhard Bonnke recently suggested that when Christians struggle with God’s will, it’s also a struggle with faith and here’s why.

“If we have to wrestle with God over His will, where is faith? And isn’t the struggle really with our own will, not His? People spend long hours hoping that God will approve their own plans, and they can say ‘I prayed about what I am to do.’ God has a revealed will. It’s the Bible,” Bonnke wrote in a recent post on Facebook.

“So ‘If we ask anything according to His will he hears us.’ (1 John 5:14) That is why Christ gave us the petition ‘Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven’ (Matthew 6:10). Jesus said again ‘If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.’ (John 15:7) The primary aim of prayer is not for our will to be done, but to bring about the revealed will of God, not to persuade God to our way of thinking, but His. God bless you as you do His will,” he ended.
