God’s Will?

“Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious spirit lead me forward on a firm footing.” Psalm 143:10

One of the biggest questions people always ask, is how do I know what the will of God is for my life? The only chance you have of ever knowing what God’s will is for your life is to be totally surrendered to Him, let me repeat this so you completely understand it. The only chance you have of ever knowing what God’s will is for your life is to be totally surrendered to Him. I say this every morning and you too have got to be at a place in your life where you say it as well. “Lord, whatever you want me to do, wherever you want me to be, I am yours.” Let me assure you right here, it is no accident that you live where you live, and where you work .The biggest hurdle to overcome in knowing God’s will for our life is the fear of the unknown. 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.

The other basics to knowing God’s will is to be totally “plugged in.” By that, I mean praying every day, in the Word, fellowshipping, and serving God everyday. It is only that intimate daily contact that allows us to really hear what He is saying. God talks to us in a variety of ways . . . through His word, in passages of scripture that prick our hearts, and in prayer as we hear that “still small voice” guiding us. A big way is through the circumstances in our life. God knows how to open doors and shut doors. Many of our problems occur when we force our way through a door He has shut.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!

    Thank you so much for these words today! “Many of our problems occur when we force our way through a door He has shut.”…that is a powerful statement.

    In my life, I know that “Our Lord works all things toward good for those that love Him.” I love Him and trust Him, and each day ask that He allow me to be His vessel…even when I make the wrong decisions, sin, or don’t even realize He is working through me. He pours His love to souls in need through those of us that open our hearts to Him, and when I am confused or not “happy” at circumstances, I know there is a lesson for me to learn, and I trust that the Holy Spirit will guide me to learning those lessons. Most of the time it takes years because I am slow to learn.

    Love and blessings to you,
    Bernadette
