If we believe that God’s will is perfect, then it follows that we should be students of his intentions and submissive to his desires. This involves the acknowledgement of ignorance on our part and a letting go of something quite dear to our hearts — the presumption that we know his will and his purpose. We must ask him to teach us, but before any class begins, we must prepare ourselves to receive the lessons which he deems appropriate for us to know. It is only in this way that we find great blessings, and take on life in accordance with the commands of God.
“When I applied my mind to know wisdom, and to see the business that is done on earth…then I saw all the work of God, that no one can find out what is happening under the sun. However much they may toil in seeking, they will not find out; even though those who are wise claim to know.” —Ecclesiastes 8:16-17
