“How do I know which job, school, or opportunity to take? Who should I marry? I don’t want to mis-step and miss God’s best for my life!” These questions cause so many to become paralyzed with fear when it is the time to make a move. How do I know the “Lord’s will”? Sometimes it is as simple as following the desires of your heart! Psalm 37:4 says: “Delight yourself in the LORD and HE will give you the desires of your heart!” You can read that as…He will give me what I want OR you can read it as He will GIVE you desires, His desires. That thing you desire just may have been put there by the Father!
Philippians 2:13 (AMP) “[Not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.”
But what if I make a mistake? Consider Jonah, he was in full rebellion and God redirected his course to allow Jonah to walk out “God’s Will”. Friends, if God did that for a man in rebellion, how much more will He rescue you from a mis-step. Pray and trust the LORD, if He doesn’t bring a specific “confirmation,” you can certainly rely upon the desires He Put in you! One more thing while you and the LORD are making plans for your life…enjoy the journey. This great adventure known as our Trek to KC has taught us many things. The biggest and hardest is learning to simply enjoy God in the moment. To relish the journey! Jesus didn’t simply endure the first 30 years of life so He could fulfill His destiny with 3.5 years of public ministry, crucifixion & resurrection. He had joy in the fullness of His days 33.5 years on the planet!
