Essential Duality

Is doing God’s will as essential to you as eating food? Why? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1483).

I hope it will never be God’s will that I fast for days on end cause I really like to eat.  Perhaps such a requirement may be the only way I will definitively know the answer to this question. But short of that, I usually think of God’s will as being less importune as churning hunger pains.  As a young man, I asked for God’s will in relation to my career. This was something that developed over many years, not “wham” all at once.  Even those who are called to a specific career at some definite point in time still must cultivate dimensional aspects of that career which can entail multiple decisions regarding the nuances of development. Once said that God’s will tends to hold sway in the long run for eternal purposes, it remains essential to qualify that with the full knowledge that God can require immediate action on matters both large and small. For example, marriages made in heaven can often have tentative, unplanned, uncertain, even dicey beginnings that require of all parties courage, risk, and ready abeyance to the will of God.
