Title: Finding the Will of God in a Crazy Mixed-up World
Author: Tim LaHaye
Genre: Christianity- Spiritual Growth
This book attempts to equip readers with a mental framework when approaching or seeking the will of God in their lives.
The author presents his views of God’s will in three levels: His “perfect” or complete will, “good” will and “acceptable” will describe God’s will for the people who fall into sin but then repent and still desire to do God’s basic will.
Though the three levels seems sound and logical, but yet I have my reservations on determining what is God’s perfect will and what is acceptable in a person’s life. Who are we to know or to judge? I also found some of the life examples given in the text not biblically sound or right. Therefore, this book ain’t the best to read for insights.
Do used wisdom and caution while adopting this concept especially in providing counseling to others in choosing what is perfect, good or acceptable which should be stemmed from God’s word and His ways and also in accordance to a person’s level of maturity in the faith.
Who should read it: Those who’re seeking for guidance and clarity in living out his/her life in God’s will.

Walking In Two Worlds
You are walking in two worlds. The full shift has already taken place and you are now learning to adapt to the new reality and to disengage your dependence upon the former. This process is not dependent upon your understanding of the intricacies of the process, but upon your obedience and trust in Me to guide you in the Truth. My Truth will always challenge and contradict your mind’s own thoughts and will. The Truth will bring you out of the darkness of your own soul and heart, and into the reality of walking with Me in the Spirit and in the fullness of the Light.
The world and those who love the things of the world do not love the Light, but they love the darkness. You have chosen to love Me, and to allow Me to change you. I have brought about the new changes so that you can now walk with Me more freely, but you must not lean unto your own understanding again, but daily give yourself fully over to Me. For you cannot understand the things of the Spirit in your mind and you cannot analyze them with your soul. You must surrender this tendency of control fully to Me and abandon yourself to My ways and to My thoughts, and to My wisdom which comes to you from above.
I am leading you upon a new path, which is one of absolute obedience and trust, but also of great transformation. Every area of the flesh, of the works of darkness, and of your lingering carnal tendencies must be fully eradicated, and be subjected to My Holy Spirit at all times. For what I am bringing you into can only be successfully walked out in full yieldedness. This new reality is the place of Truth that I have brought you into, and I have caused you to now walk in a spacious place with Me, and you will come to delight yourself in Me, and in My new Liberty, as you align fully with Me.
My Spirit gives Life to all who will draw from it, and who will cleave to it. My Life cannot be separated from Me, no more than you can be separated from Me, if you continue on in Me. Grow in My Grace in this new place. Learn of Me continually, and allow Me to reveal more of Myself to you, through the experiences that will unfold within you as a result of this new reality. For I am the Author and Finisher of Life and of Faith. I bring forth the knowledge of Life and the Truth as it is received deeply into you, will indeed set you free to run upon the new heights that are before you, this day.
Enlarge your thinking into new possibilities, break free of the old patterns that beset you, and look fully at Me as I walk with you. I have come to give you Life, even greater life that you have known up to this point. Life that flows from within you, and life that flows outwardly into every area of your life and influence. You are to walk in that life, and know that it is the place that I have brought to you, and have caused you to be the caretaker of. You are responsible for the Truth, and for the amount of Light that you have. You are responsible to continue to advance further into Me, into the things of My Kingdom, and into the greater realities of who I AM.
My World will remain and will stand forever. But your world will surely pass away in the end. It is time that you stand firmly in the reality of Mine, and to walk with Me, and learn to reign with Me, and to grow in the new Grace that has been given unto you. You are Spirit, just as I AM, and the natural world in it’s sinful reality and it’s influences can no longer hold nor bind those that are Mine. But the reality of your true inheritance will cause you to now walk higher in Me, and into your full destiny.
Move on, trust in My Word that is given unto you. I have shown you the pattern, and the Way that is now opened to you, walk fully in it. There is much to do, for many are stepping through, and the reformation is now begun. Lengthen your stakes, and take your hand off of the brakes, and let Me take you further in, at My Pace, for you have the new Grace. For you walk in two worlds, but your true identity and your destiny is in Mine. Prepare the Way before Me to move greater and to bring the full measure as you walk out this new treasure. For My Kingdom that is mature within you, is now a greater reality breaking out of you.
Walk in the Truth, and walk in Me, for you have been given eyes to see.
Colossians 1:12Giving thanks to the Father, Who has qualified and made us fit to share the portion which is the inheritance of the saints (God’s holy people) in the Light. 13[The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and the dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,
John 3: 18He who believes in Him [who clings to, trusts in, relies on Him] is not judged [he who trusts in Him never comes up for judgment; for him there is no rejection, no condemnation–he incurs no damnation]; but he who does not believe (cleave to, rely on, trust in Him) is judged already [he has already been convicted and has already received his sentence] because he has not believed in and trusted in the name of the only begotten Son of God. [He is condemned for refusing to let his trust rest in Christ’s name.] 19The [basis of the] judgment (indictment, the test by which men are judged, the ground for the sentence) lies in this: the Light has come into the world, and people have loved the darkness rather than and more than the Light, for their works (deeds) were evil. 20For every wrongdoer hates (loathes, detests) the Light, and will not come out into the Light but shrinks from it, lest his works (his deeds, his activities, his conduct) be exposed and reproved.
Romans 7:5When we were living in the flesh (mere physical lives), the sinful passions that were awakened and aroused up by [what] the Law [makes sin] were constantly operating in our natural powers (in our bodily organs, in the sensitive appetites and wills of the flesh), so that we bore fruit for death.
6But now we are discharged from the Law and have terminated all intercourse with it, having died to what once restrained and held us captive. So now we serve not under [obedience to] the old code of written regulations, but [under obedience to the promptings] of the Spirit in newness [of life].
John 6:63It is the Spirit Who gives life [He is the Life-giver]; the flesh conveys no benefit whatever [there is no profit in it]. The words (truths) that I have been speaking to you are spirit and life.
