The will of God is unnecessarily obscured in the Christian world despite how often it is asked about. Will isn’t confusing. It’s about intention and purpose. It doesn’t mean a blueprint and grudging compliance. It is in the context of a relationship (remember, “Our Father”?) with One who is trustworthy and loving that we should follow. Peterson concludes,
“Quit speculating about the ‘will of God’ and simply do it – as Mary did [at the Annunciation], as Jesus did [at Gethsemane]. ‘Will of God’ is never a matter of conjecture. It directs a spotlight on believing obedience” (p. 180).
