During that two month period I also learned about asking God’s will concerning the things I want…
Here is an entry in my journal during that time.
“Please help me to love and honor you to the greatest extent possible. I want this in my life. I don’t care about anything else. I just want you. I want to know and embrace your love, receiving it to the fullest measure possible. I want to be filled and flooded with your presences all the days of my life. I come before you and ask your will concerning these things I want.”
Wanting is part of being human, but not everything we want is God’s will for our lives. We can want a million dollars, but is that God’s will? Money is not ever to be a goal of my life. I have to lay that want down. While the want I expressed in my journal I believe is God’s will for my life, scripture supports this desire in Ephesians 3.
Not everything we want can be found in the bible, but principles supporting healthy desires will. I think of the men and women around the globe who work inside and outside the home to care for their families and to live a life pleasing to God certainly are. Staying close to the Lord will allow us to hear God’s answer to the question, is this Your will for my life!
