Why do people reject God or reject seeking his will for their lives? Is it because they think their lives will be ruined and they can’t have their own way? Most people just sit at the door and don’t knock neither do they seek to enter in because, as it states in Romans 3:10-12 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Because of the hardening of peoples hearts, most people will not understand God’s will for their lives and will choose to reject Christ or who he was, and start to think of his story as a fairy tale. The truth of the matter is, we as cursed human beings can never understand God’s will for our lives without first humbling ourselves and being open to receive his word, repenting and turning from our sin and then letting the anointing of the Holy Spirit do a good work in us, because God gives grace to the humble and rejecteth the proud. The gift of the Holy Spirit is what opens our eyes to his word, so we have much understanding. I was only transformed when I learned to humble myself, and the Holy Spirit revealed to me the things I needed to change in my life. I know God can give the Holy Spirit to whomsoever he chooses because he is a Sovereign God. We do have free will and so I know we can still choose to reject God’s Will for our lives but we will find we are NEVER satisfied, we will have highs of happiness and then lows of unthankfulness, making us feel emptier inside. It says in Mark 8:35-36 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it. For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? If you are a chosen sheep of Jesus Christ, pre Elect from the foundation of the world, God knows the plans he has for you, It says in Philippians,
Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
So God is going to keep performing that good work in you, he is going to keep sanctifying you, conforming you to the image of Christ, even if you choose to reject him, he will use all trials and everything you learn in this world to bring you closer to him. God works all things together for the good of them that love him. If you have a lot of confusion in your life, there is a reason for that. You probably want something he does not want, and you aren’t being true to your heart. It is only by his will that you can be set free. Another thing, don’t let pride be the ruler of your life, that’s how you become unprofitable without understanding, and without God we can do nothing, we really have to set aside every weight that weighs down our hearts and makes us prideful. Really start by praying because prayer is powerful and asking God for guidance. Ask him to be the leader of your life, the ruler. But you must first believe that he is the Christ and that he died for you. As it says in Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. You will find much Joy and Blessings abundant when you find God’s perfect will for your life. Being thankful and praising him for his blessings will also bring you much peace, Philippians 4:6. God will make your paths straight. God will not forsake you, he is with you every moment of every day.
When we choose to follow after righteousness, God directs our paths in the way he wants us to go, we being set free in the spirit will be full of Joy and Understanding which is much more satisfying than anything this world can give. Part of the reason we get confused or worried about what our future holds is because of doubt which is sent from the Devil. How many times in the bible does Jesus say, do not fear, only believe and talk about not doubting. When we Trust in Jesus, all is well, that doesn’t mean we wont have trials in our life, but all things work together for the good to them that love God, this means, all your trials are either going to be used for a Testimony to bring Glory to Jesus or will be used to bring you closer to him. Everything happens for a reason. When you seek God’s will it is no longer you who lives but Christ that lives in you. It says in Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. When Christ lives in us we aren’t giving in to our fleshly lustful desires and wants we follow after what Christ has for us and he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. When Christ lives in us our whole lives are revolved around serving him and praising him for all his blessings. Keep seeking God continually and he will come through for you.
And if you Love the Lord, you will Love his Will for you, instead of questions why, there’ll be praise for all he brings you through.
