Did God have something in mind for your life the day you were born? The number one question people ask ministers is, “What is God’s will for my life?” We want details and God rarely gives them for good reason.
One of the greatest gifts God ever gave man is the freedom to choose for himself. He never intended for His will to make us mechanical or static. Instead, He gives us great freedom, some would say too much freedom!
- The freedom to choose whether or not you want God in your life.
- The freedom to choose or reject salvation by His Son, Jesus.
He gives us freedom to choose but at the same time He has a will, a desire, a dream He’s always had for us. What is it?
Last Sunday afternoon I went for a prayer walk with God and I asked Him, “Lord, what is Your dream for me?” On the inside of me I heard Him quickly reply,
“To love the Lord with all your heart, and all your soul, and all your mind, and all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself.”
It’s not that often I get such a quick response to my prayer.
The upsetting part of this is, I thought I was already doing this, but, apparently not! I asked another question.
“Lord, how can I love You like You tell me to?
