Ephesians 5:17

“So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.“ (NASB)


“So then do not be foolish (aphron: unwise, without reason, senseless, stupid, without reflection or intelligence, acting rashly), but understand (suniemi: consider, be wise, perceive) what the will (thelema: desire, pleasure, of what God wishes to be done by us, commands, precepts) of the Lord is.“


So, don’t be a senseless fool that acts rashly, but consider and understand what the Lord desires of you that brings pleasure to Him.


God’s will - two words so often thrown about with such little care or concern. Today, be wise and take time to consider, to ponder on what brings pleasure to God’s heart. Don’t be found flippantly running through life without understanding His will for you. Be wise, be deliberate, be one that is truly found in the will of God.
