DOING GOD’S WILL

It is essential that as believers, whatever we do, do it in God’s will. We need to have a clear knowledge of what God has for our lives. We cannot allow our own desires to get ahead of God’s will. We live in a time in which if we are not careful, we can substitute our will for God’s will. Not only that, we might believe we know what is better than what God knows. Whenever we pray, it always has to be let Thy will be done. Whatever we do, must be done to the will of God. This applies to each one of us. All of us have the capacity to dismiss the will of God and inject our own agendas. The scripture in Ephesians 5:17 reads in this manner:

“Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.”

Paul warns us not to be foolish, but to seek always the will of God. Paul understands precisely what it means to be in the will of God, for he was foolish at times. Thinking he was doing the will of God until the Damascus Road experience. In the following verse, Paul speaks of not being drunk with wine but to be filled with the Spirit, for it is the spirit that guides us in all truth. The Spirit makes itself known to us when we are doing the will of God. We must always be aware of moving outside of the consequences when we step out of His will. When you get a chance, read this entire chapter for practical applications for doing God’s will. I close this devotion with these words, “Forgive us, Lord when we seek to do things our way. May your will be done in our lives, we pray. Amen.”
