The Joy of Willing

The Joy of Willing…

Believers have a strange idea that if you will something, then it can’t be the Spirit. And yet God’s word is filled with the opposite. You can’t read the Bible without reading the word ‘Choose!’

You can’t get saved without the word ‘choose.’ It says ‘Love God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength.’ That takes your will. And that’s the Spirit. Some believers think that following God means just going along with the flow.

Yes and no. There are different flows – the flow of the Spirit and the flow of the world. In order to serve God you have to choose the flow of the Spirit and you have to choose against the flow of the world. And that requires choice, determination, and decision.

So many believers spend their whole lives trying to find the will of God. You want the will of God in your life? Stop asking everyone about it. Choose it. Obey it. Agree on it. Decide it. Will it. And the will of God will be done in your life, on earth, as it is in heaven.

“Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your ancestors worshiped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:14-15

After reading your Bible today, choose one verse to obey and do what you know the will of the Lord is.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
