Discovering God purpose and doing His will always require change. What needs changing necessitates partnering with what God has already complete.
“I desire to do Your will, O my God; Your law is within my heart.” – Psalm 40:8
There is a direct connection between finding and doing God’s will and having God’s Word in our heart.
In my life, I’ve met many people, who are unclear about what God’s purpose for their lives. Often I would ask, “How much time do you spend with God? Studying His Word? Prayer? Meditation on the Scriptures?” In the same way, I cannot expect to know my wife; what she likes, what she dislikes, unless I spent time together with her. How can you tell what God’s will is for your life if you don’t spend time with Him?
It isn’t enough to have a desire to follow God. Many Christians are master of desiring but fall short with the corresponding action. Zeal without action is futile. An old saying says, “Zeal without knowledge is a runaway horse.”
We must put our energy, resources into getting to know God.
Why? His purpose for us flows from His Presence; it flows out of the relationship with Him.
Why don’t you commit yourself again, this day, to seeking Him more in your life, by spending more time with Him?
“Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” (Jer. 33:3).
