Got to agree with Brian.We can get so wrapped up in worrying that were praying /attracting something that wont actually happen because its NOT Gods will. That would take all the power out of that promise and would render all asking powerless because we would always have a massive doubt at the back of our minds that whatever we wanted wasnt Gods will and therefor wouldnt happen. I beleve Gods graet mind is entirely ammenable to your suggestion and requests.Christ had such a faith in the affirmative that He went as far as to say that you must just assume youve already got what youve asked for. If God was constantly bartering for terms or denying you then Jesus would have been issuing false advice. He would never command you to believe you had something which in fact you didnt. Gods one with you,if you want something that truely good and will do no one any harm its already yours.If it belongs to Him then it belongs to you.

It is my belief that God's will (or "wish") is that people live their lives productively. For some people, that means being healthy, wealthy and wise. For others, it means living a life of austerity or difficulty while they learn life lessons. For all, it means abiding by certain well-known principles that form a foundational ethical framework by which effective decisions can be made.

The Biblical passage that you refer to simply means that, if you live your life according to God's principles and wishes for your life, that your life will reflect the productive result of the application of those principles. It means that you can trust those principles.

Major [life] decisions are usually subjected to a routine process of "finding God's will." By this it is meant that God has already drawn up the blueprint and we must now try to discover it, and the speed of discovery will be related in some way to our spiritual maturity. It is a cat-and-mouse game of guidance in which we look for hidden clues to what God wants, trying to build up a composite picture and making a decision based on a judgment as to what He appears to be saying at a particular time. Typically the elements are the Bible, counsel, circumstances, and inner "peace", especially through prayer. The Bible is used something like a recorded weather forecast or, at worst, a horoscope.

God does indeed know the next step for each of our lives, but there is no mandate in Scripture by which we should seek to know it. On the contrary, we are explicitly commanded to avoid all kinds of divination.

Confusion has probably been caused by semantic coincidences. In our current translations, there are two NT Greek words which are commonly rendered "will" in English. One of them, boule (and its cognates), primarily signifies God's purposes; it is unchangeable and irresistible, and in this respect these future plans for our individual lives are unavailable to our inquiry. For example, the word occurs in, "Who resists his will?" (Rom. 9:19), and, "This man was handed over to you by God's set purpose and foreknowledge" (Acts 2:23).

The other word which is usually translated "will" in English is the Greek word thelema and its cognates, occurring more than fifty times in the NT. It refers to something that is desired or that one wishes to happen. It is this "will" that we are commanded to know (Eph. 5:17), although in our sinfulness we often disregard it. We are commanded to "stand firm" in God's thelema (Col. 4:12). In every instance of its use in the Bible, it signifies God's wishes as to how we should conduct our lives. For example, "It is God's will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men" (1 Peter 2:15).

"Can someone please itemize the specific will of God for:..."

I believe His will for all of these things are different for each human.

We may know in general what He thinks about those qualities of the human experience but if we truly knew what he wanted for each of us, it would be a different ball game.

God's will is creative, to love thy neighbor, and to be happy, prosperous, to grow and expand. To live in Truth, which the truth is: that God is omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, and omnibenevolent. Since God is omnipresent that means in, around, through, and permeates all, then God is part of us or is us and since God is all abundance then we are abundant, Financial Prosperity, Health, Love, Peace, Wisdom, Justice, Freedom, Guidance, Understanding,Faith, Spirit, Power, Love, Youth, Success, Victory, Happiness, Purpose, Achievement, Mastery, Dominion etc. All of this is for us which is for God.

I asked a similar question What is God's will and how do you follow it?

God is omni... God is everything, and there is nothing but God. Gods will is Our will. There is only One, Love and Light. Smile, Enjoy Life. Our will is to enjoy life, and Gods will is to enjoy life. We are human beings not human doings. To be, we smile, and open our hearts to ourselves. Try this, Close your eyes, take a few complete breaths in through the nose and out through the mouth, exhale Ahhhh. Smile, then, place your hand on your heart and feel the interaction between your hand and heart. Continue smiling and taking chest expanding breaths. This is You and God communicating. Enjoy!
