Most of us, at least at some point in our life, believed that the desire was ours to be in service of the Kingdom of God or even to become a child of God. We did not realize that Kingdom desire comes from God and is directed toward us. To better understand this, reading the account of Nehemiah shows how God put the desire in Nehemiah to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem.
And I arose in the night, I and some few men with me; neither told I any man what my God had put in my heart to do at Jerusalem: neither was there any beast with me, save the beast that I rode upon. (Nehemiah 2:12)
It is God’s will or desire that we serve Him according to His good, perfect and acceptable will. Jeremiah is another one that God ministered His will upon. In this case, Jeremiah was not jumping for joy at the instructions of God. He told Jeremiah:
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. (Jeremiah 29:11)
It is God’s will that that counts; not ours:
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Romans 12:2)
For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. (Romans 8:29)
