Knowing God’s WIll

Knowing God’s Will

 

1 Samuel 23:2: David asked the LORD, “Should I go and attack them?” “Yes, go and save Keilah,” the LORD told him.

 

“Well, are you gonna run for Congress or not?” Julie asked her best friend, Marcie. “You’re one of the most well-known people in the district. You’ll win.”

 

“I’m not sure.”

 

“What’s to be sure about?”

 

Marcie took a long breath. She had become a Christian about a year before. In church she learned about God’s will and doing God’s will and things like that. She wanted to please the Lord. Did he want her to run?

           

“Is this one of those God things you have?” Julie finally asked.

 

“It’s important to me,” Marcie answered. “God is important to me. I have to do what he wants.”

 

“Fine, then pray about it, and see what happens.”

 

“Okay.” Marcie went home that night and prayed. God soon answered in a matter of days, giving her what she thought was a “go ahead.”

 

Is God concerned about things like getting elected to Congress? God wants to be involved in every aspect of your life. It’s not so he can control you. It’s so he can lead you to fulfillment.

 

Do you want to know what God wants today? Start with prayer. Talk to God. He’ll tell you.

 

Prayer: Father, I want to do your will, not mine. Lead me. Amen.
