FOLLOWING GOD’S WILL

Following God’s will does not mean we will never have trouble. Trouble is a part of life. Having fulfillment and peace in the midst of trouble is what living in God’s will is all about. There is great confidence in knowing that you are walking in the will of God and doing what He wants you to do. When you are sure of that, you can better deal with what life brings you. So don’t think that trouble in your life means you are out of God’s will. God uses the trouble you have to perfect you. There is a big difference between being out of God’s will and being pruned or tested by God. Both are uncomfortable, but in one, you will have peace, no matter how uncomfortable it gets. In the other, you won’t.

Following God’s will is not easy. The life of Jesus confirms that following God’s will is not always fun, enjoyable, pleasant, or easy. Jesus was doing God’s will when He went to the cross. He said, “For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me” (John 6:38).

Following God’s will doesn’t happen automatically. That’s because God gave us a choice as to whether we subject our will to Him of not. We make that decision every day. Will we seek His will? Will we ask Him for wisdom? Will we do what He says? “Do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is” (Ephesians 5:17). God’s will is the way we should choose to live each day of our lives.

  1. Everything we go through happens for a purpose. Every trouble or heartache we go through, God wants us to lean on him, talk to him, cry to him, come to him, be real with him, even vent to him, let him know how we really feel. We also need to gear towards drawing closer to Him and in growing in love for Him. To be able to honestly say to him, “I love you”. Good things come to those who love Him. His plans aren’t to harm us. It’s important to be conscious and aware of God’s consistent presence within and outside of us. He lives in us. We are connect through his love, through him. I need to talk to him more often, more consistently, throughout the day. How else would I grow in my relationship with him? He doesn’t want an appointment in the day. He wants to always be with, you with him. He can most certainly be included in all we do as long as we are aware and are doing it for him.
