Following God’s Will
It’s a Straight Talk:
We often have opinions and resolutions that are off God’s will for us. It’s a weakness we bear; having perceptions of the “best for ourselves” that are often not the best way to go. We can turn from this clause by not acting on how we feel or what we’d like, but going the way He instructs.
It is common that we think doing as we please would give us satisfaction and fulfilment. At this, we’re wrong.
What you choose to do in line with pleasure, desire or feeling may end up being futile. After the activity, we’d still be thirsty for fulfilment. Going God’s way would bring us fulfilment. After the venture, we’re not weary, even if the task was demanding: we’re refreshed and revived. Doing just what we think is best for us would give the opposite; tiredness and unfulfilment. The vacuum we tried to fill remains.
It is imperative to seek God and receive insight to His will and direction so we would align with the right path. Then, we’d get the satisfaction our soul thirsts for instead of the persisting vacuum we’d have if we go our way.
Sometimes we just need to go in prayer, not asking for what we want but seeking God and receiving direction to His way for us.
“Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.”
Romans 8:26-27 KJV
Frequently, we’re clear on what God wants us to do contrary to what we’d rather be doing. The choice to make is to submit and trust, His way is best. His thoughts are way higher than ours. Our options do not measure up to be compared with His.
