Finding God’s Will For Your Life.

  No comments    

So many people wonder around the Earth day in and day out trying to figure out what it is they were meant to do with their lives.  They go on pointless venture after pointless venture, only to fail miserable which only adds to their frustration. With the world the way it is today, people seek to find a simple solution in the form of get rich schemes and instant fame. Everyone wants the simple way out and they do not ever consider if it was something they were called to do.

Let me explain this further. The Bible states that’s “For many are called, but few are chosen” Matthew 22:14.

This means that everyday God is calling out to each and every one of us to do something great.  He wants us to step into the destiny that He pre-ordained for us before we were even born and not go about doing things our way.

The reason why, people never get to be one of the chosen is because they never sit and think about what God created them for.  The way I see it, as humans we were created by God and therefore we work for Him.  This is not to say that all of us are meant to be preachers or leaders in the church, but there are gifts inside of us in which God gave us that He wants us to use to glorify His name. After all isn’t this what Christianity is all about?

Aren’t Christians called to live the life of a Christian, so that whatever it is they are doing people can look at them and tell that God is working through them?  In fact this is what God wants.  He wants to show the world that those who follow Him and truly seek His desire for their lives, that He can work in such a way that others will be amazed, by simply looking at your life.

God wants people to think “God must be real, look at her. I remember how she used to be, but now not only is she religious; but she is also successful and happy at what she is doing.  And she did it praising God all the way.”

This does not mean that you are out in the middle of the street proclaiming to be John the Baptist, trying to baptize people in the local pool. It means that whatever surroundings God has placed you in or people you interact with, you try to mimic the way of Christ.  This means being nice to those who talk about you, speaking love over hate, having nothing negative to say about others even if they have talked about you. People will see the God in you by what you do not want you say.

The Bible states “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33
This means that you first need to talk to God and seek Him with all of your heart, mind, body, and spirit. And once you have achieved this, God will add all that He has planned for you.  People mess up and waste time by trying to thrive in areas they were not meant to thrive in.  This leads to frustration and wasted time.  But going to God first, understanding His will for your life, will get you to your destination a whole lot faster and easier then you trying to do it on your own.

In closing, do not be the person who gets to heaven and God shows you all He had planned for your life and you never even came close because you were too busy following your own path.  Be one of the chosen now, seek God, and get started on His path to success.
