God's Will And Ways!

As the hart pants after the water brooks, so pants my soul after you, O God. (Psalm 42:1) 

 Godliness is something below the surface of a life, deep down in the realm of attitude---an attitude toward God 
Himself. The longer I think about this, the more I believe that a person who is godly is one whose heart is sensitive toward God, one who takes God seriously. . . . . The godly individual hungers and thirsts after God. In the words of the psalmist, the godly person has a soul that "pants" for the living God (Ps. 42:1-2). 

Godly people possess an attitude of willing submission to God's will and ways. Whatever He says goes. And whatever it takes to carry it out is the very thing the godly desire to do.

The Finishing Touch 

Following God's will and ways is the most exciting yet most difficult thing we will ever get to do as Christians. God's will and ways will always be adventuresome, mysterious, thrilling, even chaotic sometimes. Given how "unpredictable" God's will and ways can be in our lives, we will need as much hand holding as possible.

Regardless of which way God leads us, it will always be for our temporal and more importantly eternal good. Yes ,there will be moments in our walk with God when things will not make any sense and it will likely feel like He has abandoned us, but that is never the case. The most amazing part is that God is in the thick of our walk when we go through the toughest times of our lives when our faith in Him is challenged. 

My dear friends, take courage in knowing that no matter what it looks like in your life right now and in the days, weeks, and months to come, God's will for your life is to make you more into His likeness and the way is to heaven through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Be encouraged my friends, be encouraged! 

Thank you so much for reading this far my friends! May God continue to bless you and keep you in Jesus' mighty name! JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!!!!. . . . :-).
