“Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is” Ephesians 3:17, NKJV.
The will of God is the compass of your life and His Spirit leads you according to it. When His will turns, we are to turn with it. When it is still, be still and know that He is God. When it moves forward, you move with it. His Spirit will always lead us into a blessed life. However, we can experience frustration, loss and unnecessary hardship when we attempt to make something His will–that is not.
From small to big decisions, no matter how great your desire is, no matter how badly you want to work for a specific company, no matter how much you want to stay or leave somewhere, no matter how good she looks, or how it appears, let your goal be to not confuse your own will with His.
Develop a habit of asking the Lord what His will is for you. It is unwise to live without understanding this and where He is ultimately taking you. The safest place for you is in the center of His plan, and we can’t afford to live outside of His will in these times.
People need you where He instructs you to be. You are blessed and the greatest blessing where He wants you to be and doing what He wants you to do. Where the Lord plants you, you will surely grow. Who He says to marry, that is what will last. Refuse to lean on your own understanding right now, no matter how something appears or feels. Trust in the will of the Father and be confident that He knows what you want. Everything you desire and more will be found in His will.
Prayer: Father, thank You for wisdom and counsel today. I humble myself and submit to Your will for me. Help me redeem the time because the days are evil and understand your will for me. Quicken me Holy Spirit to the knowledge of His will with the decisions before me and You will not lead me wrong. I believe You know what I need, and You want to bless me. I focus on Your will. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
