Stay in Touch with God to Find His Will for You

Bill Keller wrote a devotional today that I
recommend to you for your consideration. It has food for
thought. He has given me permission to copy his e-mails,
and I'm sure he would be happy if
you would share this
with people you know as well.

What's the secret to finding out what God wants you to
do for Him? Stay in touch through prayer, thinkging
about God and attending church. The more contact you
have the clearer His desires for you will be.

Please read on.


( Psalms 143:10 )

The goal is not to conform God to our will, but for us to
conform to His will. This Devotional today is a deep one.
One of the most frequent questions people always ask, is
how do I know what the will of God is for my life? Much
of the difficulty in determining what God's will is for
our life is trying to separate our wants and desires from
God's wants and desires. This is probably one of the most
difficult issues you will ever deal with in your walk with
the Lord and I just want to give you some basics to help
you in not trying to conform God to your will, but for you
to conform to His will.

The only way you can begin to understand what God's will
is for your life is to be in a daily, intimate,
surrendered relationship with Him. It is critical that
you are spending time with the Lord every day through His
Word, through prayer, and that quiet time where it is
just you and the Lord in fellowship. That is the only
way we can learn to hear His voice so that over time we
are able to discern whether it is God speaking or simply
ourselves. I can't begin to emphasize enough how
important it is to take the time each day to get alone
with God and have that time of fellowship. You only
begin to know God's will for your life when you really
know God.

The key is you have to be at a place in your life where
you are fully surrendered to the Lord. You need to be
able to say, "Lord, wherever you want me to go, whatever
you want me to do, I am completely yours". The biggest
hurdle to overcome in following God's will for our life
is the fear of the unknown. What is my life going to be
like if I follow God? How will my life be different if I
really let God have His way? Trust me, He loves you,
cares about you, and only wants the best for you. God
wants to bless you and those blessings are found as we
faithfully and obediently follow Him.

The more we listen to God's voice, the more we obey and
follow His voice, the less time we spend trying to force
God to follow what we want to do, and the more time we
spend trying to follow what God wants us to do. As we
grow and mature in our relationship with the Lord, we
find ourselves more concerned with what God is asking us
to do and we slowly begin to make His desires our
desires. My friend, THAT is the time when you find that
special place almost impossible to put into words. That
place where your desires have become God's desires. It
is clearly no longer your will that you seek, but it is
His will.

I love you and care about you so much. I will be praying
for you that you will get serious about finding and living
in God's perfect will each day. It is the only way we
truly know the peace, joy, and abundance of this life. In
His will, we can do all things because it is not us, it is
Him. Out of His will, we can do nothing. Nothing works
or makes sense. Take some time alone with the Lord today
and begin to pray in earnest for God to help you begin to
quit trying to conform Him to your will, but for you to
conform to His will!

As we are into the last 9 days of our 81st month, I want
you to please take a moment and pray, ask God what He
would have you do to help me today. I only ask that you
are obedient, give according to your ability to give,
and give what God is asking you to give. If it is $20 or
$50, fine. If it is $100 or $250, fine. If it is $500,
$1,000, or a unit in "The 300" of $10,000, fine. *Don't
assume that someone else will give. What they do is
between them and God. It is YOUR obedience God is looking
at, and YOUR blessings.
