Lately God has really been ministering to me in multiple ways (His word, His people, His spirit) about doing HIS WILL(to worship HIM in everything that I do.) This post comes after a few days of studying and reflecting on things that God has ministered to me over the past two weeks. There are a lot of independent thoughts and prayers.
Currently I am studying Proverbs and using Betty Millers Daily devotionals that are based on the book of Proverbs as a guide. Check it out http://www.bible.com/daily-devotional.php
God’s will is that we do everything for HIS good pleasure. (Ephesians 1:1-10) Our gifts that HE has given us are made for the edification of God.
We should operate in God’s time rather than try to do things in our own time. For there is a time for everything (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8) and when we operate outside of the timing of God, we are operating outside of the will of God. We are not bringing glory to God (worshipping HIM with our lifestyle) which is our whole purpose on earth.
If you sing, sing for just the GLORY OF GOD.
If you dance, just dance for the GLORY OF GOD.
If you praise, just praise for the GLORY OF GOD.
If you sing, if you praise, if you dance, in all things do them to the GLORY OF GOD.
We must humble ourselves to do HIS WILL daily. We must seek HIM daily through devotionals, prayers, exhortations, praise, worship est. We should seek to do HIS WILL with our whole lifestyle; No part of our life should not be consumed by HIM, our occupation, family life, friendships, learning, recreation, est. because it is not about how much money you have, people you know, it is about doing GOD’s WILL and worshipping HIM.
(Scriptures you may want to check out: Matthew 6:31-33, James 4:3, John 16:23-24, James 1:5-8, John 16:33, Matthew 6:19-21, Proverbs 1:2-7)
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; but fools despise the wisdom and instruction.” Proverbs 1:7
To have knowledge (be wise) is to know God. The only way to be well learned is to seek the scriptures. If God is the beginning of knowledge, a wise ALL KNOWING GOD, and HE is THE WORD, we should get to know HIS WORD intimately so that we are not foolish.
MY PRAYER (This may be your prayer too, so you can read it out loud as you are reading this if you agree.)
God I seek not to be foolish, but to be full of your wisdom. Help me to desire to learn your ways and your will. You have continuously blessed me even though I do not deserve, but I inherit your kingdom because of your love for me. Thank you for your love for me, the love that I received even in my past foolish ways. Hide me in your shadow, cover me with your wings of protection as you have done over and over in my life. Lord continue to work in me, break me, shape me, mold me, all of me, all aspect of my life to your perfect will for my life. Make my ways your ways. God your will. In Jesus name. Sealed by the blood of the Lamb. Amen
