For a long time I believed that if God’s will was done in my life, then it means I got the short hand of the stick, that God didn’t care about my wants, needs or desires. When I was writting this blog, the Holy Spirit kept bringing me back to the story of Adam and Eve, precisely when the serpent convinced Eve that God didn’t want them to be like a god and they would know good and evil . You know the end of the story, Eve ate the forbidden fruit and boom the fall of humanity. I feel like that how’s my life has been going, I keep falling for the enemy lies instead of trusting God’s will for my life.
Have that happened to you, where you know God’s will is better but yet you find a way to do your own will. You know his plan is to give you a new life and yet you can’t seem to get out of your old one. You are not alone for It has been the same for me for a long time. I put my plans, desires and wants above God’s will and that resulted in me pushing him away and doing own thing.
When Jesus lived among us, he made sure to tell the disciples and the Pharisees that he came to do God’s will and not his. He continued telling them he came from heaven to do the work of God so that humanity would believe and be saved. So what is the will of God?
The will of God is whatever God has called you to do, to be direct, the work God has call you to do. Now please understand we share a common work but we all have a unique work or will God has assigned in our lives.
God’s will, not my plan
I didn’t want God’s will to be done because I didn’t have a genuine experience/relationship with him. Without a genuine relationship, you can’t fully trust that God’s plan is not to hurt you, or to deceive you but it is instead to give you a better, and brighter future. You know God’s character based on scriptures but its through experiences with him you will come to trust him.
This new shift in my relationship with God help me to be at ease with his will in my life. I am no longer afraid or concern about my future because I know who God is and I trust he will work everything out my for my good.
To conclude, it is a blessing for God’s will to be done in our lives. For his plans is never to hinder us or forsaken us, but it is to give us life, abundantly. I hope you began to start trusting God today with your life, wants, needs and desires.
