The Wills of God


     When talking about what God wants everyone to do, we must speak of the will of God (i.e. in the singular).  When talking about what God does for His people, we have to speak of the wills of God (in the plural), because God does so much for His people.

     In Psalm 138, David writes of three things that God does for His people.  Here, it is written, “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me.  The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; do not forsake the works of Your hands” (vv. 7-8). 

     What comfort to know the wills of God:

  • When I up to my eyeballs and disheartened by wearying, difficult, trying times, God will revive me (v. 7).
  • When the wrath of my enemies threatens me, God will save me (v. 7).
  • Jehovah never does anything halfway; therefore, He will mercifully and faithfully help me to fight the good fight, finish the race, and keep the faith (v. 8).

     “And, lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20) remains God’s expressed will of what He will do.
