His Will

21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ ~ Matthew 7:21-23

Doing the will of the Father who is in Heaven is a lot more important than we think or teach. A lot of the time we’ll say we need to go to church to be saved. Or we need to read our bible. Or quiet time. Which yes they are all true. But what seems to be one of the most important, if not the most important, is “doing the will of the Father.”

How many of us can say we are doing God’s good and perfect will? How many of us can say that we are doing what God has called us to do? How many of us can say that “I am doing what God called me to do, every day of my life?” I’m sure not too many. Why? Simply, we weren’t taught how to. We were taught that we need to do God’s will, but not how to do that. Not how to find out our calling. Not how to hear His voice when He is speaking.

Are you where God wants you to be, or are you following in your parent’s footsteps because it’s the family business? Or maybe just doing it because it will bring security? Or maybe following your own selfish desires?

I’d urge each and every one of you to take a second and evaluate your plans. Are they following the will of God, specifically for your life? But how do you know? Spend time with God, and He will tell you. Jesus said, “My sheep know my voice.” As you build up your relationship with Him, the voice of God will become clearer and clearer every day.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and do His Will.
