God's will isn't a guessing game
August 19, 2011
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
You know, some people think of God's will like some kind of cosmic Easter egg hunt.
But God's not playing hide and seek with you. This isn't some guessing game where God is saying, "You're getting warmer. Oh, now you're cooler." No! Our lives are not left to fate or fortune or circumstances.
God wants you to know his will more than you want to know it! And it's not something you have to fear, either. You may have heard me say this before, but it bears repeating: God will choose for you what you would choose for yourself if you had sense enough to choose it. It's true! God always leaves his best to those who leave the choice with him!
Now this doesn't mean that God's will is always easy. Sometimes God's plan can be dangerous and difficult. Just ask Jim Elliott, the martyred missionary who died for his faith taking the gospel to South America.
So God's will may not be easy, but it is always best, always perfect, always good, and always acceptable!
Don't wait until all else fails to try God's will! Seek God's kingdom first! Martin Luther put it this way, "Love God and do what you want to do."
Love God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength, and he's going to lead you.
OUR LIVES ARE NOT LEFT TO FATE OR FORTUNE OR CIRCUMSTANCES.

When life gets busy, it’s easy to miss your daily time with the Lord. Yet, what you think will save you time actually ends up sapping you of the power you need!
That’s why I want to send you a copy of my popular 365-day devotional book called A Daily Encounter with God.This powerful tool contains a Bible-focused reading for each day that will help you plug into Jesus Christ—your only true source of power.
Along with the devotional, I’d like to send you a copy of my I Am Second story on CD. It’s my prayer that my story will be of encouragement to you or someone you know!
Both of these resources are my gifts to bless you when you give an online donation today. So thank you for giving to help PowerPoint reach people with the Good News of Jesus ’til the whole world hears.
