Do you struggle to wonder what God’s will is for your life?
Many of us do.
Although it isn’t a quick answer, the best way to find God’s will for your life is to read His Word. The Bible will tell you the answer to that question.
Romans 8:31 tells us, “If God is for us, who can be against us?”
Actually, finding God’s will isn’t the hardest part. Deciding to follow His will is where we get tripped up.
People need the skill and discipline of being persistent. Too often the impulse is to give up and then, if we’re honest, pretend that God hasn’t revealed His will to us.
Good old Abe Lincoln had it right when he said that the only important response is to make sure we are on God’s side, not whether He’s on ours.
God has already told us that He’s on our side. He sent His Son, Jesus, to take the penalty for our sin. It doesn’t get any more “on our side” than that.
Change your thinking a bit. Don’t focus on what you think God is supposed to do.
Resolve instead to follow God, and do it every day.
Lord, your will is the thing that drives us on, to find our purpose in life. Thank you for sticking with us. Help us to stick with you. Amen.
