Knowing the Will of God

A lot of us say we want to know the will of God as an excuse not to be faithful and responsible.

His written will:

God entrusted this life to us, and it’s our job to live it, not to push the responsibility back on Him. I hear this all the time, “I just want to know: I’m waiting on the will of God.” It is usually an excuse to do nothing. What’s unfortunate is those people discount the will of God that is written — the Bible. It is full of His will for us.

No exemptions:

I believe we don’t want to do the obvious because too many are waiting to hear God tell us we are exempt from His word — very unfortunate. He will never say that. While we are waiting on God, we are to keep doing what we know to do. I may not know whether I should take this job or that one, but I do know to go to church, involve myself, support first the kingdom in every way.

Just do it:

The reason so many don’t ever get the direction they desire is that they are unwilling to do what God has already said. Why would He give us the answer when we ignore what He already has said? He won’t.

Let’s be people who do what we know according to the word of God, and then see how God will lead and direct our steps.

Wisdom Is The Principal Thing

Wisdom Is The Principal Thing

Proverbs 3:13-16 (NLT) — Joyful is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gains understanding. For wisdom is more profitable than silver, and her wages are better than gold. Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. She offers you long life in her right hand, and riches and honor in her left. 

Get understanding:
Solomon describes the value of wisdom. Proverbs uses the term wisdom in reference to something more than mere intelligence or knowledge. Biblical wisdom is the ability to apply knowledge in a godly way. The capacity to follow God’s will is incredibly valuable, more so than any material possession ever would be. Nothing a person can desire can compare with wisdom. This includes all possessions, accolades, and luxuries.


Get wisdom:
A person may desire fame or fortune, but wisdom is far better. Instead of believing God for things all the time, maybe we should seek wisdom above all else. It’s wisdom that will cause us to be successful in life. Let’s seek wisdom and watch what God does in our lives. 


Wisdom!

Be Thankful

Be Thankful

I Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NLT) — Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. We are commanded to be thankful. I believe it is something we need to learn.

Entitlement vs thankfulness:

Billy Graham said, “Thanksgiving — the giving of thanks — to God for all His blessings should be one of the most distinctive marks of the believer in Jesus Christ.” The opposite of thankfulness is entitlement. Entitlement is a belief that we have a right to something we didn’t earn. Somehow, we deserve what everyone else has, regardless of whether we worked for it or earned it; somehow, we have a right to it. This is known as covetousness, which is a violation of the 10th commandment.

Unthankfulness:

Francis Schaeffer said, “The beginning of men’s rebellion against God was, and is, the lack of a thankful heart. God said in Romans 1:20-25 (NLT) that when they knew God, they weren’t thankful, so He turned them over to a depraved mind, a confused mind.

Choose this day:

We will serve somebody or someone. We can serve God and live or we can stay unthankful and serve addiction, fear, anger, no rest, etc. I’m sure you can continue that list. Let’s practice thanksgiving, being thankful, and watch and see what God does in our lives. Be thankful!
