Two thoughts about God's will

I posted a while back concerning God's will, but as I was leading our staff in a devotion, some thoughts came to mind. We were reading in Ephesians 1 (always an awesome place to read), and I realized:
  1. God has made the mystery of His will known to us. How so? In Jesus Christ, who provides redemption, forgiveness, and reveals the grace of God. The plan for His will is to accomplish a complete restoration of this world through His Son. That has been revealed, and the mystery has been made known.

  2. Much of God's will is not 'lost.' We often pray that we might be able to find God's will, and yet references like Romans 12:1-2, 1 Thessalonians 4:3 and 5:18, and 1 Peter 2:15 tell us that God's will, although once a mystery, has been revealed to us.
