I just can’t. I don’t know where it came from. Anyway, for God knows that in the day you eat of it, look what he said to her. For God knows. Then the day you eat of it, your eyes will be opened and you will be like God knowing, hold up, timeout, timeout. The devil said that the day you eat of it, you will be like, God, wait a minute, wait a minute. Didn’t we just read that they were already like God, so God had a way for them to be like God, but here’s the issue.
We Can’t Fall for the Counterfeit
The enemy has another way. He has another way and his way. He will try to come to us with the same end goal, be like God, be like God. God’s way of being like God or the enemy’s way of being like God and I’m telling you, the enemy will throw you and me all of options in our life and they will look like it’s the same goal with just with a minor shortcut, but we cannot fall for the counterfeit. We can’t fall for it.
He’s going to say, you want to get married? Hey, you can get married. This is what God wants for you. Man to leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife. It’s God’s will for your life. You can either do it with God or you can do it without God and this is what the enemy does. The enemy comes to us and gives us that ultimate or alternate option. And this is what he gave to them. And here’s the second myth we’ve got to bust about the will of God. Here’s what he said. He said, the day you eat of it, your eyes are going to be opened and you’ll be like God. God’s holding out on you, Mt. Carmel Illinois Church.
The reason he told you not to you that true, he’s holding out on you. Here’s the myth of the will of God, that the will of God is limited. So the Myth Buster is the will of God is limitless. People think the will of God is like that diet that if I follow the will of God, what can’t I do? I’m not going to have any fun. I’m not going to do anything fun. My life’s going to be boring. It has to be bland. I’m going to hang around with all of them church people that don’t do anything exciting.
So the will of God, Myth Buster. The devil tried to say the will of God in your life will limit you. It will hold you back. God was not holding back from them anything that they needed. Everything that they needed they could find in God. But the enemy came and said, if you’ll do it my way, then you will get what you want faster. The problem was there’s a catch. There’s a way that seems right to a man, but the end thereof is death. So he tricked him into thinking, if you can get this now, just eat it now and your eyes will be open. God had already caused them to be like God, but the enemy is trying to steal that. So I’m just saying to you, we’ve got to realize that the will of God, do we want to bust out of our heart is that it is not limiting.
Doing it God’s way is Freedom for your Life
It is limitless. It’s limitless. He wants to give you everything. Everything that you have. Now the second Myth Buster is the limitless. Let’s look at the third Myth Buster. Let’s go to second Peter, chapter 3 verse 9. So the first one, the will of God is the love of God. The second one, the will of God is limit less, not limited. Limitless. It’s freedom. We need to know this about the will of God for your life, Mt. Carmel Illinois Church.
You need to know that the will of God is freedom for your life. Doing it God’s way is freedom for your life. Doing it our way. We think we outsmart God all the time. We think we’re better than God out here. People make these posts that say, “Hey, you know what? We need to stop teaching girls about abstinence and we need to start teaching them about safe sex.”
There’s a reason that God has these guidelines for our life. It’s not because he doesn’t love us. It’s because he does love us. He wants to protect your heart. He wants to protect your life. He’s not holding back. He’s not putting boundaries. He’s giving us freedom, by doing it God’s way. It breaks chains, it doesn’t bring chains. Sometimes we get too smart in our own everyday world and we start thinking that God says this, but we know something better. But God’s saying to us, “Listen, the will of God is limitless.” Let’s look at the third one Mt. Carmel Illinois Church.
Second Peter chapter 3 verse 9 says this, “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise as some count slackness but as long suffering, (everybody say long suffering, long suffering, long suffering) toward us, not willing that any should perish. When we get to read that again, not willing that any should perish, not willing that any should perish.
That word any means one, some or every of all without specification. That means all of them. Not willing that any should perish or any should die. It should be left apart from God, but that how many should come to repentance. Now we got, we got to do this. I’ll make sure you’re understanding this, but as long suffering towards us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. How many should come to repentance? Oh, he’s not willing that any should perish. Any, Mt. Carmel Illinois Church.
