If you only knew the peace that comes with the conviction that you are in the place and circumstances where God wants you to be… and that you are doing the thing for which he created you. What a difference it makes!
As soon as you try living this way, you will find that God’s purpose for your life is maximum creativity, achievement and responsibility-not less.
But the truth is that our lives are made up of the sum of the small things. If we do not let God into these everyday details, practically speaking we are not letting Him in at all.
What is my plan of “letting Him in?”
Would you like to have God’s guidance for your life?
If you would, first you have to believe that He is God and can guide you.
But faith is not belief. Faith is belief plus what you do with that belief.
Belief becomes faith only at the point of action. If you want to hear God, you will have to face up squarely to the questions; “Am I willing to do whatever He tells me to do?”
What is my plan of “doing?”
This is a decision that must be resolved before you can receive any guidance from God, before your Christian adventure can begin.
“How hard it is for our proud wills to bow the neck and call Him ‘Master and Lord’! Yet how we must; if we are to take even the first step toward maturity, or fulfillment or greatness” (Peter Marshal-Under Sealed Orders).
The action is ours… Are you willing to tell God now that you will follow His plan wherever it may lead?
