We ask God to give you complete knowledge of His will and to
give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. All the while, you will grow as
you learn to know God better and better.
Colossians 1:9-10 (NLT)
What is God’s will for your life?
That’s a big question. Not many of
us can answer.
We’re often told that our goal
should be to discover our life’s purpose – that God created each of us with
particular talents and experiences to play a specific role in His master plan.
Whether we seek it out or stumbled
upon it accidentally, the discovery doesn’t happen all of a sudden. It takes years
of practice following God in the ordinary, everyday things, listening to His
voice when deciding who to sit next to at the table, when to accept a new
responsibility, or which radio station to tune to.
In my last post
I invited you to
spend one day consciously and continually seeking God’s will. Learn to
recognize His voice and practice following His guidance.
What does that look like?
It definitely means maintaining a
conversation with God, also known as prayer. It might mean asking God for
wisdom before making a decision or responding to the internal voice telling you
what to order for lunch. It might involve acting on an urge to say something to
a stranger. For that one day, you might take particular notice of your
seemingly random, fleeting thoughts.
Will you join me for one intentional
day? Ask for His involvement. Try to
listen and respond.
Let’s share our experiences in the
comments! I’m betting there will be some amazing God-incidents.
