The Will of God (2 of 4)
Series: The Will of God
Last week, I gave the introduction to the series we will be covering over the next 3 weeks on the Will of God. We defined the word "WILL" from the webster's dictionary and then translated those definitions into what the word of God says about the WILL OF GOD.
1. something desired,
2. a disposition to act according to principles,

Heaven, mansions, and rewards await those that wait for Him! Don't forget there is an inheritance waiting for you.
