God's Will (or Wills)

Kevin DeYoung, in his book Just Do Something (get it here or here) has this to remind readers as we are trying to determine God's will:

God's will of decree - what He has predetermined from eternity past - cannot be thwarted. God's will of desire - the way He wants us to live - can be disregarded.
