“As slaves of Christ, do the will of God with all your heart.” Ephesians 6:6
The will of God is an often used phrase and the frequent subject of prayer. There are times our commitment to love and serve Jesus Christ and his will is simple to understand, yet other times complex. What is the cause of this seeming paradox? The complexity appears when we attempt to sort and clarify the details for our individual lives. During these seasons there are some critical questions to focus upon and process:
1) Will the direction pursued result in growth and depth for the love of God?
2) Will the choices reduce and eliminate self-centered goals and desires, in order to better position us to serve his command to share the hope of his Good News with the world?
Following these two questions comes the unfolding revelation and experience of God’s greater detail for our lives as he sees the motive of our heart directed toward the welfare of his kingdom’s goals.
George Muller was a man of deep love and devotion for God, with tremndous faith in God’s ability to lead and provide. His writings deliver good counsel for all in search of God’s will, “I seek at the beginning to get my heart into such a state that it has no will of its own in regard to a given matter.” -George Muller
I pray for your will, your heart, and your way in the matters before me contained in this day. Amen.
