What is God’s purpose for my life? What is His will for me?
Have you ever asked those questions Friends?
There are three passages of scripture that come into my mind when my thoughts go down this road.
1 – ‘Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for THIS is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.’
2 – ‘Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.’
3 – ‘Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.’
Friends, there’s the will of God in Christ Jesus for us, that we continually rejoice, pray and give thanks.
God longs for that constant moment by moment joyful communion with us and for our dependence upon Him.
He loves His children and longs to help us live out our purpose!
This is God’s desire for me and for you Believer, the very purpose for which we were created, that our lives might bring Him, our God and Creator, pleasure and glory because Friends, He is worthy!!
If we were to ask these two questions more often – will it please God and will it glorify God? – then we’d more often be found communing with God in prayer, rejoicing and giving thanks whatever our circumstances.
Friends, may we each be given the grace we need to live our lives for God and may our prayer be ‘no more me, just all Christ in me!’
