Knowing God's will Part Two

Knowing God’s Will Part Two
Romans 12:1-2

Simplify your life. I live with a very down to earth practical way of thinking. I simply exercise common sense. If what I am doing in life is not working I just try a another stragery to accomplish the dreams and goals that I have.

Don’t get stuck just doing the same old thing and getting the same old results. Step out by faith and try something new and fresh. Come up with a plan and and present that plan to the master architect. Let him take it, and expand it a hundred times and give it back to you.

Life was designed to be an adventure no matter how young or old you are. I have heard people say over the years, “No one really knows what God has for them to do in life.” The Bible says in 1Corinthians 2:9-10, “Eye has not seen nor ear heard neither has it entered into the heart of man what God has for them that love him.

But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit, for the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.”

It has never been God’s intention for us to wander around in the dark not knowing what He has for us to do. Here is a key to knowing what God has called you to do.

God’s purpose will keep coming up on the inside of you and will burn in your heart.You will be more excited about that endeavor then anything else. For me, my heart burns to minister to people the love and power of God and to teach people how to play music. That is what I spend most of my time doing and most of the time it does not even feel like work.

My body gets tired somtimes but inside I am bubbling over with the joy of the Lord and I am totally fulfilled. After some of you read this I know that the Lord is going to instruct you to go in a new direction in life. Some of you will pick up old dreams that had to be put on the back burner because of circumstances.

I am telling you right now those things that God has for you will come to pass so start pursuing them again, even if you have to take baby steps toward them. We serve a big God! Start dreaming big, talking big, thinking big, and living big.

You have been called to be a big producer. John 15:5, “I am the vine, you are the branches, He who abides in me, and I in him, bears much fruit; without me you can do nothing.” By staying open to the leading of the Holy Spirit and being quick to repent when you miss it, your life will produce much fruit.
