Be in the Middle of God's Will

Look at a simple yet seemingly complex verse in Eph. 5:17: "So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is."

God's will is God's desire for us.  As we live by Christian values each day, we will naturally obey God's will for our lives (doing good to others, forgiving, being patient, showing tough love, witnessing, etc).

The special assignment to serve as a missionary overseas, changing jobs, dating and marriage, which neighborhood to live in, who to disciple, what action to take when wronged, what church to attend and where to serve, etc. require extra effort to discern (prayer time, godly advice, biblical support, signs from God, etc.).

Discerning and doing God's will is a responsibility that God commands Christian's to pursue.  We cannot stick our head in the sand and claim ignorance regarding the things of God.  We must understand the will of the Lord.

Christian's take time to understand and then obey God's will for you each day.  Guess where you will be in the future?  Right in the middle of God's will.  

FYI: A daily pursuit will remove much stress for those who struggle with God's will for their lives.

God Bless,

Pastor Brian E. Kennedy, Sr.
