Faith is not the human act of merely consenting to theological knowldge but it is the divine act of submitting both our Intellect and Will to God's revelation. If the Intellect alone is employed, knowledge remains simply as true and good life-giving information. It does not transform our life nor does it give life. Faith without action is dead. Jam 2:26 Will is the faculty of the soul which seeks to love that which is known. And 'loving' is not simply liking the information but the act of becoming what we have come to know. In other words loving is to freely act upon the information in such a way that knowledge becomes a living experience.

Fathers' perfect will for me

Father, Your love for me is constant. My love for You is not. It totally depends on my mood and feelings. I feel differently at different times. I get hurt and I switch modes. I have negative feelings when things go against my will and expectations. Is the culprit then my will and my expectations or is it my emotions?

For I know the plans I have for you, declared the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  God's will is good, pleasing and perfect. 

God, I know you have a perfect will for me. Do I need to have my own will then? If I join my will to Your will, do I need to expect at all? Cause you bring to fruition all things beyond my expectation. Emotions they respond to my deposition like a mirror. If I smile, she will smile back and if I frown she will do the same.

To have my own will is a gift God has given me out of his great love and respect. Father may your will be done in my life and nothing more nothing less.
