YOUR HOLY WILL
"The gift of my will is a gift of ME "
Teach me to do your will; for you are my God: your spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness. Psalm 143:10
The will of our glorious God is for us to know Him, to seek Him as our first priority, and be drawn out of darkness by our love for Him. To give up living to our own will and die to self. To give to others as if to Him. To believe in the Light which is Him, and wait quietly for Him who is within each of us, so He can re-create us to be pure as He is pure, and bring us to see Him in his glory. To adore Him forever, and to be his sons, in total union with Him - so that all of our judgments, words, and actions are controlled by the promptings of God - His will, not our will.
To seek Him as our first priority
But seek you first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33
To seek God, find Him, and be united with Him is the single and sole purpose of life. He [God] has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in you all. Keep on seeking and you will find. Matthew 7:7
..Seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. Deuteronomy 4:2
You must do the will of the Father so as not to be banned from heaven.
Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
Even those who think they are Christians, will be banned, unless they do the will of the Father, which he told us: This is My Son, My Chosen One or My Beloved; listen to and yield to and obey Him! Luke 9:35
So you must come to Jesus, silently listen, hear him speak to you, and then obey his commands.
To believe in the light – which is Him
In him was life; and the life was the light of men. John 1:4
He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men's hearts. 1 Corinthians 4:5
While you have light, believe in the light, that you may be the children of light. John 12:36
[While in the Light, as it shows you the condition and motives of your heart and teaches you,
believe in the light - that the Light is Christ, who is the Light; that you may become children of the Light. For in Christ is the Life, the light of all men. And God is Light.]
I am the Light of the world, he that follows me shall not wait in darkness, but shall have the Light of Life. John 8:12
To give up living to our own will and die to self, so we can live by His will.
And they that were of the second birth, were taught of God, and needed no man to teach them; and were come into the everlasting covenant.
And those are the second birth, who are born again of the immortal seed by the will of God, and not by the will of man.
To leave the pleasures and lusts of this life and turn to Him
That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. 1 Peter 4:2
For it is written: they that are in the flesh cannot please God. Romans 8:8
To turn inward and wait quietly for Him to re-create us to be pure like Him.
Therefore, hearken to that, and take heed to that which calls your minds out of the vile affections, and the world's lusts, to have them renewed; the same will turn your minds to God, the same light will set your affections above, and bring you to wait for the pure wisdom from God from on high, that it may be justified. Wait all in that which calls your minds inward, and turns them to God; and here is the cross witnessed, that the mind shall feed upon nothing but the pure light of God, and on the living food which comes from the living God.
Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. Titus 2:14. That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life. Luke 1:74-75 Truly my soul silently waits for God; From Him comes my salvation. Psalm 62:1
Let Your mercy and loving kindness, O Lord, be upon us in proportion to our waiting and hoping for You. Psalm 33:22
To give to others as if we are giving to Him, because He is in each person:
'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ Matthew 25:40
Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law. Love does no harm to a neighbour; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. Romans 13:8-10 [But until you are filled with love, by dying to self, you cannot completely love your neighbour as yourself, nor can you fulfill the law, yet.]
To defer - yielding our will to others - as a practice to make our own will subside. We should do this in all cases, unless it is immoral, dangerous, or of major consequence.
And he sat down, and called the twelve, and said to them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all. Mark 9:35
Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:4
If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; you also ought to wash one another's feet. John 13:14
To worship Him in Spirit and truth
Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth."John 4:23-24
We should, indeed, surrender our whole being unto Christ; and cease to live any longer in ourselves, we are lost in him; and this can be effected only by the annihilation of self, which being the true prayer of adoration, renders unto “God, and unto the Lamb, blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, forever and ever.”
This is the prayer of truth: it is “worshiping God is spirit and truth.” because we here come to know the Spirit to help our infirmities, and make intercession for us; and being thus influenced by the pure spirit of God, we are thereby drawn forth and freed from our own carnal and corrupt manner of praying [to that of quiet waiting]. We can pay due honor to the Almighty only in our own annihilation which is no sooner accomplished, than he, who never suffers a void in nature, instantly fills us with himself.
It is the spirit that quickens; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak to you, they are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63
So all may come to drink into that one spirit, that does baptize them and circumcise them, plunging down and cutting off the body of the sins of the flesh, that is got up in man and woman by their transgressing of God's commands. So that in this holy pure spirit all may serve and worship the pure God in spirit and in truth.
He has given us free will so that we have the possibility of giving something precious to Him: the gift of our will.
And He said to me, “The gift of My will is a gift of Me”
Whoever has my commands and obeys them, He is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him." John 14:21
We should give up our whole existence unto God, from the strong and positive conviction, that while we are faithfully endeavoring to follow him, the occurrence of every moment is agreeable to his immediate will and permission, and just such as our state requires.
Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for you are the God of my salvation; on you do I wait all the day. Psalm 25:5
We can trust our Lord's will to complete His union with us because He is all knowing, all wisdom, all loving:
He knows all – He walks outside of time –sees all that has happened and all that will happen, and can change it whenever it is good to do so. He can change the universe to his ends.
That which has been is now; and that which is to be has already been. Ecclesiastes 3:15
Who then is like me? Let him proclaim it. Let him declare and lay out before me what has happened since I established my ancient people, and what is yet to come— yes, let him foretell what will come. Isaiah 44:7
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. Hebrews 11:3

Remember the former things of old, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me, Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things that are not yet done, Saying, 'My counsel shall stand, And I will do all My pleasure,' Isaiah 46:9-10
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, said the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. Revelation 1:8

by Him should be our fondest hope.

[And Jesus, in His wisdom said], Repentance and remission of sin should be preaches to all nations. Luke 24:47.
He is holy goodness, faithfulness and love – so He sees from the perspective of unselfish giving, from purity – what is best for each person, each moment.
In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. 1 John 4:9
And we have known and believed the love that God has to us. God is love; and he that dwell in love dwells in God, and God in him. 1 John 4:16

Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32
Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. Matthew 10:29-31
We are blind to what is best- even to what is happening- so to have his all knowing will is a treasure.
And I will bring the blind by a way [that] they knew not; I will lead them in paths [that] they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them. Isaiah 42:16
