God Has Already Told You

16 Apr

As Christians, we yearn to know the will of God for our lives. We want God to use us for His glory, but we often feel confused or stuck as to what to do or which direction to take. Do we sit and wait or just dive into something and see what happens? We may pray asking God to show us what it is. Then ask the Holy Spirit to confirm it. The difficult part is we often want our own way. We make plans only to have them frustrated or fall apart.

One of the things that took me years to learn is that while we are waiting on God to reveal his will for us, we should be doing the things we already know pleases Him.  God’s word tells us what His will is for every Christian believer. What does the Scriptures say we must do? Abstain from those habits that are bad and sinful, such as smoking, drugs, nightclubs, rock music, skin magazines, gambling, etc.  To stay away from everything that has the appearance of evil. (1 Thessalonians 5:22)  Jesus said if you love me you will obey me.

Carry out the Great Commission, tithe, help the less fortunate, use your spiritual gifts, volunteer wherever God’s work is being done. We are without excuse when we do nothing but sit and wait for God to act. He has already told you what you should be doing.
