“There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, “Thy will be done”, and those to whom God says, “Alright then, have it your way.” - C.S. Lewis
At one point or another we will all ask the question, what am I going to do with my life? Where am I going to end up? Who will I marry? Will I like my job? What is God’s will for me? (you get the idea) We have this desire to know what is ahead in our lives. We have this need to know God’s will and plan for us.
2 Peter 1:3 says “His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness.” Right now, wherever we are in life, God has given us exactly what we NEED. Notice I didn’t say what we WANT.
The things that we need and want can be completely different. So… when God makes it known what He wants for us (what we need), we either don’t listen, or delay action until it is convenient for us and what we want. Too often we become consumed with our wants and fulfilling the desires of our hearts — funny thing is, God already knows the desires of our hearts, and has already given us exactly what we need to fill them, His Son.
God’s will for us is that we are filled with the Holy Spirit - when we are led by the Spirit, we start an incredible journey to be more like Christ.
Enjoy this journey today!
