Do you ponder as to what the will of God is for you is?
Maybe God wants you to start a church or maybe He would like you to go to a Bible College? Perhaps He wants you to go overseas to do missionary work? It could be He wants you to go back to school? Who really knows what God wants from you, anyway?
Often there is a lot of confusion in individuals as to what the will of God is for their life; consequently, people often live without a true purpose, aimlessly and without a vision. You may even hear these Christians sing this song, “One day at a time, sweet Jesus…,” and they are glad they have survived through another day without tragedy or incident.
His will for us is one of the most exciting things a Christian can experience. Could it possibly be that the enemy has blinded us in this area so we can’t even see the obviousness of it?
First, let’s see what God has to say about knowing His will. 1 Thess. 4:3 says: “Now this is the will of God for you: set yourself apart and live holy lives…” (The Voice) We simply need to live a pure life before Him to be in His perfect will.
Secondly, another way of truly knowing His will is to simply present ourselves, our talents and gifts to Him and not allow the world to mold us into its image. Instead, we need to be restored in our minds from the inside out. This is God’s perfect will for us. Romans 12:1-2.
Thirdly, we can know His will by simply being thankful in all circumstances. That is a tall order, especially when a neighbor is getting on your nerves and you can hear his loud music in your office while you are trying to hear from God and write a blog (smile). The Bible does not say to be thankful for everything, but in everything.
When we live pure lives, present ourselves to Him, don’t allow the world to mold us, and become thankful in all circumstances, we are in His will and we will shine His light, like the light-bulb that lights up the room in the pictured below.
I hear Jesus say, “I have called you to a life of joy and purity and I am the only One who can release that in you. I have created you to be at rest and simply shine My Light to the world. You need not do big things for me–just follow Me, and I will be big in you and through you.”
