Duty of Man

E 2:24 A man can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in his work

E 3:12 I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live.

E 3:13 That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil, this is the gift of god.

E 3:22 So I saw that there is nothing better for a man than to enjoy his work, because that is his lot.

E 5:18 Then I realized that it is good and proper for a man to eat and drink, and to find satisfaction in his        
             toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given him - for this is his lot.

E 8:15 So I commend the enjoyment of life, because nothing is better for a man under the sun than to eat and
                  drink and be glad.  Then joy will accompany him in his work all the days of the life God has given
                         him under the sun.
E 11:9 Be happy, Young Man, while you are young, and let your heart give you joy in the days of your youth.
             Follow the ways of your heart and whatever your eyes see, but know that for all these things God will
             bring you to judgement.

E 12:13 Now all has been heard;
                               here is the conclusion of the matter:
              Fear God and keep his commandments,
                                      for this is the whole duty of man.

God's Sovereign Will

God's Sovereign will is revealed through many scripture in the WORD OF GOD. 
The first and fore most basic part of this is COMMAND.
God commanded Adam and Eve not to eat the fruit in the middle of the garden but they didn't adhere to it.
The God's command for mankind in the old testament is given through MOSES.  The ten commandments.
The God's command for mankind in the new testament is given through LORD JESUS. The two Prominent Commandments.

There are several other commands of god which are indirectly referring to these commands. Infact God's has one purpose in giving all those commands i.e., to make man to have fellowship with him.

Adam and Eve Lost the Honour given by God to them by coming to them to have fellowship in the evenings by breaking the command. They failed to follow God which resulted in casting them out of his presence the garden of EDEN.


If God's will is revealed then to obey it the following are required

1. God's Time
2. God's Way

God's Time:  God's Time indicates that god's will should be done in the right time in which god determines us to do.  Acting Earlier or Late indicates that we are not following god with all our heart and soul. God reveals his perfect time just as he revealed his will.

God's Way: God's Way tells how to do the god's will in HIS way.  God's will for a given purpose can't be accomplished if we fail to follow his path.

GOD'S WILL is GOD'S WISH which reveals the best path or the best decision for given problem in our life how ever critical it is. God's will helps us to walk in the ways of god. God's will can be categorized into two parts

1.     God's Sovereign Will

2.     God's Specific will

God's Soverign will is common for all the believers and it cannot be changed.

God's specific will is for a particular person which states the best way to choose.

Jesus Prayed to the Father when he was about to handed over to the soldiers before the day of holding the cross. Jesus Himself  prayed earnestly that father "if it is possible to pass this cup from me then allow it but not according to my desire but according to your will". Jesus submitted to the will of father for his glory.

This speaks about the two wills
 1. The will of Father(Sovereign Will)
 2. The will of Jesus(Specific Will)

Most of the soverign will of god can be found in the word of god.
The specific will of god can be know only through prayer in holy spirit. God answers the prayer in several ways.

Some of the ways are

1.DAILY PORTION of the word of god

2.Gifted speakers


4.Fellow believers

5.Through the inner peace in our heart

6.Through Voice(external)

7.God has his own way to communicate(we can't say even as above 6 kinds, some time he conveys even with donkey's)

Each person can grasp the voice of god according to their gift of holy spirit.

The importance of god's will is given in bible by the very word of LORD JESUS as to stay any believer to be spiritually fit. "'My Food',said Jesus, is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.".Food is prominent source of getting energy to physical body. Similarly spiritual body needs the food to stay fit. A believer fails occassionally and confess his sin each and everytime just because he is not walking in god's will. He cannot withstand to the temptations and trails that comes in his way. Lord Jesus won all the tempatations in his earthly life because he is very clear about what god's will is.
