Will you?

“…your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven…”
~Matthew 6:10


Are you actively seeking God’s will in Your life? Or do you settle for surviving each day and pursuing your own wants and desires?

I say “surviving” because I believe that’s all we do when we only seek our own will and not God’s. We make it through the day. Or we survive the week. Or we just barely endured this month. God has SO MUCH more in mind for us than merely “surviving.” He wants to help us LIVE more abundantly than our measly human minds can imagine.

So, what’s the plan for today? Get through it? It’s Wednesday, middle of the week… if you can just make it until Friday…what? What happens then? Do you LIVE for the weekend?

What if we LIVED for EVERY DAY? How would that look? Think about how God could use us if we surrendered to His will every day. Think about how every day could be an opportunity to do something amazing to the glory of God.

Keep in mind that seeking God’s will is not always a huge decision, but it is always life-changing. Taking the small step of humility each day, putting others before yourself…or choosing to not engage in certain conversations…or simply being flexible about your time so that God can use you.

Father, help me abandon my own will – my own wants and desires – so I can become more in tune with Your will. Help me put aside everything that does not bring glory to You.
