Doing the Will of God
The perfect will of God for every born again Christian is person-specific. What you are doing now in God’s kingdom may be good to you, your ecclesiastical superiors and colleagues in your denominational organization. But is it the will, I mean, perfect will of God for your pilgrimage?
2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
3 For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. (NKJV)
Some Christians are engrossed in working for God. Unfortunately, no one can work for God. God’s expectation is for His children to walk with Him and not work for Him. To walk with God is to obey Him. Mankind has nothing to give to God
The key in walking with God is to know God’s perfect will for one’s life. It may not be what you think. Every Christian has the capacity for knowing the will of God for his or her life.
The denominational environment is very exciting. But it can distract from knowing and doing the will of God. I spent more than twenty years in the ‘organized church’ thinking I was working the work of God. What a waste. Promptings of the Holy Spirit to do what I was called to do were assiduously ignored. It’s prestigious to be daddy-in—the-Lord to very important persons in society. I valued the titles and accolades. All along I knew something was missing. There was a void. And dissatisfaction too, in spite of doing well with peer acknowledgment in church work.
Many people spend a long time in church doing what they were told to do rather than what God designed for them to do. If you are not satisfied with what you are doing now, take out time to seek the face of the Lord. Trust Him to reveal your divine assignment to you and be prepared to obey Him no matter how ‘unpleasant’ or ‘belittling’ the assignment may be.
Expect restoration of lost time. “So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten.” (Joel 2:25)
