Finding God’s Will for Your Life

i love jesus

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.

Jesus, Lover of My Soul (My Testimony)

Jesus the Real, True, Pure, Merciful, Gracious, Holy, Lover of my Soul. I have had a lot of different loves in this life including people, relationships, things, clothes, music, movies, hobbies, you name it. But deep down I always was searching for something more, for that true, pure, gracious love that only Jesus can give. No one and nothing else seemed to satisfy me, not ever! (but I still am passionate about what God has blessed me with!). God is so Amazing in how he works things and brings us closer to him, and when God disciplines us through sanctification that’s real love, for he shows that he cares for us. Before I really came to know the Lord on a much deeper lever I was seeking a fulfilling life through people and friends, wanting to fit in with the crowd and look cool, going out to parties, clubbing and drinking etc. Although I knew that God was there and kinda knew that what I was doing wasn’t really good I still thought I could just let it slide and not worry about it yet (what people call procrastinating) and I wanted to do this because everyone else was, I thought it was the way to enjoy life since everyone is doing it! I also used to be an obsessive shopper and would waste my money buying lots of dresses from Ally every weekend, but once I would get them, they felt like Nothing, I still wasn’t satisfied and had to go buy more. Only when I came back to truly know Christ again (when my eyes were opened) did I realize how many clothes I had built up and that I really didn’t need to have bought all of them, but I know it only happened because I didn’t have Jesus to fill that void in my heart beforehand. Only when I came back to my first love (Jesus) did I end up throwing out a lot of clothes and giving to the more needy and now I hardly ever buy any new clothes anymore because of all the ones I’ve built up from years ago. My friends thought I was a nutcase for not wanting to partake in these party/clubbing events anymore, since it’s what all young people do right? But the conviction I had upon my life was so strong it brought me to tears for I know it was the Holy Ghost convicting me of sin, and I know I had wronged God in every way and didn’t want to continue on the path of unrighteousness. I wanted to cease doing evil and start on the path of righteousness. Psalm 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. After that I stopped going out and partying and started looking for good churches to fellowship in. I tried a Baptist church, 2 Pentecostal churches and 1 Church of Christ, all of which I still found were a bit off topic, I was REALLY searching by now, and I wanted the truth, not some more jibber jabber. So by then I left the churches and started studying the Word of God for myself with a few family bible studies at home as well, this is about the time I was truly filled with God’s Holy Spirit. Later I found out my Dad got a new job in Adelaide which meant we were going to be moving, this greatly grieved me. Even though I had changed my life and turned back to God I still didn’t want to leave Perth, I would miss all my family, nephews and nieces. So I tried as hard as I could to stay in Perth. I did as much as I could in my own strength to stay, but God had bigger plans for me. No matter how hard I tried, I always failed. This really humbled me because it showed me that I must trust God’s will for my life, not my own. Proverbs 3:5-6 For a long time when I was lost and still searching I kept praying to God to free me from the dens and workers of iniquity and to cleanse me from all unrighteousness. I was really praying that God would bring some good faith filled Christians into my life, some people that were really seeking the truth too that I could fellowship with, I just didn’t know that these people would be in Adelaide. Only after we moved to Adelaide did I start to realize God’s plan for my life. I found some great faith filled believers to fellowship with in church and bible studies. My dad also started finding people off the street when witnessing and bringing them home for bible studies at our house. It was satisfying to finally be able to find rest for my soul. God satisfied my soul with his word so I no longer craved these things of the world. God really answered my prayer and I know I am now in a much better place, even though I may not have a lot according to the worlds standards but I have much more in Christ Jesus who died for me and the life to come. Praise God!
