Take Your Place Within The Body Of Christ To Achieve God’s Will!
If you’re afraid that God’s will for your life will take you down a path you won’t like or that will greatly disrupt your life, think again! God designed you to fulfill a specific work that you will love and find exciting. Not everyone is called for ministry. God also works through us within businesses, careers and our homes. Whatever God’s call upon your life is, you’re going to love it!
Look To God With Complete Trust
Christians are often fearful to give their lives to God for service believing they may have to leave everything they know behind, including their family, friends and everything familiar.
Their minds go in every direction thinking about the millions of possibilities that God may have for them to accomplish for Him–and they might not like any of them or they might seem inconvenient. However, there is no need to fear and instead, every reason to be excited. If you’ve been reading this site, you know that there are three aspects of God’s will.
1. We receive salvation through Jesus Christ
2. We act upon God’s Will (the Bible) as we learn and study it
3. We commit our will to God and live His life plan for us (our purpose)
Salvation is obviously the first step a Christian takes with God. They may take a few more, but because of a lack of knowledge or the fear of losing their lives the way they know it, their steps begin to follow their own direction or the direction of those who the world promotes, regardless of their lack or void of God’s influence.
Sometimes Christians just want to be accepted by their families or peer groups. Following God will make them look like less of a person in the eyes of those they respect, so they follow a path that was not meant for them.
Do you know what happens when you follow the wrong path? YOU GET LOST! Are you lost? If you can’t answer that question immediately, then you are out of step with God and following your own path.
I’m not here to chastise you but provide you with the information you need to begin living God’s call upon your life. Today can be the day you begin again with God. It can be the day you start living the most fulfilling life God has waiting for you.
God’s Purpose Categories
The chart below organizes the four Life Purpose Categories. We can fit within one or all of those four categories, depending upon the talents we’ve been given and God’s desire for our purpose. You may already be where God wants, but if you’re not succeeding at it or you don’t like it, then you need His direction and will to give it empowerment and new life to make it fulfilling.
I don’t know what the will of God is for your life, but I can say with all assurance that it is unique, exciting and it will give you the most fulfillment of anything you could ever do. Whatever it is, it will take away the longing in your heart that always keeps you feeling something isn’t quite right with your life. Today you can begin to make your life “RIGHT WITH GOD.”
