*TOPIC: HOW TO KNOW THE WILL OF GOD FOR YOUR LIFE – PART 3*
LET’S TURN OVER TO *HEBREWS 12:1*. IT SAYS,
*Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.*
Do you know that there is a particular purpose why you are created? Are you just living your life saying “anything goes”? If you are using your head to walk instead of your feet that are created for it, how convenient is it for you? This is what many people are doing on daily basis, they are living a life that is opposite what God has designed for them thereby positioning themselves in a wrong environment and live all their lives not convenient.
Beloved, if you are in a wrong location in life or career, you will be a terror in that territory because you are not designed to work there. Do you really have passion and satisfaction where you are right now? If no, Maybe you are in another man’s territory. Where do you belong? What are you specially design to become and do in life? Have you asked the maker of life the purpose of your life on earth? When everything is failing, you need to check your calling whether it aligns with what you are trying to do.
Our golden verse says you have to run with patience “the race” that is set before you, and the way you do that is by “looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of *your* faith”- Heb. 12:2a
Do you notice the “the race” that is set before?
Whether we believe it or not, there is a race before us and there is a cloud of witnesses watching as we run the race. This race is not about the earthly possessions but it is all about what you accomplish in your calling for the advancement of the kingdom of God.
What do I need to do to know the will of God for my life?
You will not know God’s will until you know and believe that there is a divine plan for your life. When you know it, then, you can proceed to spend time to ask God who created you in His own image what he had in mind when he created you. Don’t stop praying for it in just a minute and claim you desire to know His will. This is a prayer we must continually pray until we are sure that we know it and begin to walk in it. Some are called to be doctors to influence medical professions, some accountant to influence the banking sector, some pastors as teachers to influence the spiritual world and draw men unto Christ, some businessmen and women to finance the kingdom of God and influence the business world, etc.
Where do you belong to? You could be a teacher called to influence education. There are countless professions God has raised men to influence him. Could you please take this weekend out to seek God’s face for your next phase in life.
Final words: It is better to seek God for 3 days to know his will for your life than to be wandering in life in frustration and doing what you are not destined to do.
