Today, I have been reminded of one of the most important things that many of us forget with time. A lot of us tend to forget why we are here in this World…Where we are heading out to?…What are we supposed to be doing? We forget the fact that we’re here for a purpose and that God created us for His glory. We are called to shine as light in this dark world.
Do you know what God’s will is for your life? I know I’ve struggled to find out what His will was for my life. The bibles says in Romans 12:2 – “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect” (NLV).
I don’t think God could have been any more clear on this. We need to allow God to transform us into this new person. Our thinking will be transformed and we no longer seek to acquire the things of this world but rather strive to acquire the things above. In others words, we will no longer be in want of something. This becomes a good checkpoint. When God is your shepherd, you will not be in want (Psalms 23:1).
I know I personally have desires time to time for a nice car or a beautiful house but I am not in need of these things. So the next time, Satan takes you out for a spin and tries to indulge you in worldly pleasure as he did to Jesus (Matthew 4:8-9), rebuke it and set yourselves right before God immediately. Ask God for his divine help and let not the worldly desires get to you. We are here for a purpose so let’s fulfil that and head home.
Let’s obey Him because we love him not because we have to. Be a strong soldier in God’s army. If a soldier loses his determination to win the battle, he has already been defeated in his heart. Let’s not lose our determination. Let’s run the race faithfully till the end and overcome this world just like our father did.
