God’s Will For You

Prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.            Romans 12:2 NKJV

In order to fulfill God’s will for your life, you’ll have to deal with:

  • What other people want you to be
  • Your boss wanting you to be more productive
  • Your health club wants you to be more fit
  • Your credit card company wants you to be more in debt
  • Your ego and personal ambitions driving you in the wrong direction

Seems like everybody has an agenda for you, and if you spend your life trying to meet their expectations you’ll never be free. Sometimes loving people means having to disappoint them. Seeking to become the person others want you to be is a shallow way to live. Nobody can tell you exactly how to change, because only God knows. Even you can’t tell yourself how to change, because you didn’t create yourself.

To love someone is to desire and work toward their becoming the best possible version of themselves. And the one person in the entire universe who’s qualified to do this is God. Unlike people, God has no hidden agenda or unmet needs He’s hoping you can help Him with. He knows what the best version of you look like. He delights in the very idea of it, and is already working to bring it to fruition in your life.

The Bible says, “In all things God works for the good of those who love him” (Romans 8:28 NIV). That means God is at work every moment to help you become His best version of you. And you’ll only be truly free when you make up your mind to be happy about being the person God meant you to be-the one He’s working on every day.

  1. I appreciate your insight into allowing God to provide us with a proper self-awarenes and identity. It reminded me of the scriptures where Jesus asked his disciples, saying, ‘Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?’ Mt. 16:13; Mk. 8:27. Until we discover and accept who God made us to be, everything else is a mere masquerade. Peace!
