“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Romans 12:2 NIV
The will of God is perfect. God’s plan, God’s desire, God’s agenda, cannot be anything but perfect. His will is entirely without ﬂaws, defects or shortcomings. In conception and
execution, His will is perfect.
Every good and perfect gift comes from above, from God (James 1:17). For it comes from a flawless realm and a faultless being, and even our flawed world cannot make it defective. His plan to save man was ﬂawless in conception, for the Lamb was slain before the foundation of the world (Revelation 13:8), and was perfect in execution, for the Lamb died on the cross and rose after three days.
The will of God is perfect. It is complete beyond practical or theoretical improvement. No matter how hard man tries to improve on it, he cannot. He will end up creating his own will. For it is whole in conception and should maintain that wholeness in execution.
God’s plan of making Abraham a great nation was to be executed through Isaac his son, but Abraham tried to improve or salvage the will of God when the promise of Isaac delayed by inventing Ishmael. But no matter how hard Abraham tried, Ishmael remained Abraham’s will. For God’s will was perfect and whole in Isaac, needing no improvement.
The will of God is perfect. It exactly fits the need in every situation and in every purpose. God who in His sovereignty knows the needs, designs His plan to perfectly meet those needs. No need beats the imagination of God’s will; for His plan precedes the needs, and comes in just in time to meet the needs.
When Moses was reiterating the law to the Israelites in Deuteronomy thirty two verse four, he exclaimed concerning God’s will, “… His work is perfect, all His ways are judgment… ” David the psalsmist sang in second Samuel twenty two verse thirty one that “as for God, His way is perfect, the word of the Lord is tried… ”
Whenever the will of God is put to the test, it always passes, with a perfect score. It may appear flawed when beheld with the eyes of flesh and analysed by hearts of stone, but when those eyes are anointed with eye salve (Revelation 3:18), and those hearts of stone fall on Christ and are broken (Matthew 21:44), the exact nature of God’s will is discerned as perfect. For the word of God, which is the will of God is perfect, converting the soul (Psalsm 19:7).
