If we can only do this, then it’ll go nicely with us. We are in need of wisdom. We’re confronted with many, many options daily and on our own we do not make it. That’s the reason why we want the Holy Spirit to shower us with intellect. Yes as Paul will say: 10… As you know more and more how God operates, you will find out how to perform your own work.
Looking for God’s will is not anything new. Paging throughout the Psalms, you find the fantastic David calling out to God time after time, begging God to assist him since he did not know what to do: Psalm 27:11 Point me down your street, God; guide me together a well-lighted road; reveal my enemies whose side you are on.
She informed him when we follow Jesus, all goes well and we will know precisely what to do in each situation – in other words, we’ll understand what God’s will is. However, as soon as we decide to not follow Jesus, we are on our own and shortly make the incorrect decisions.
However, what exactly does this imply in practice, once we must walk in God’s will daily? In the subsequent few verses David finds wisdom and makes a couple of great ideas to help us find God’s will for our lives: I am sure now I will see God’s goodness at the lush earth. Take heart. Do not stop.
Believe, hope, confidence, be brave, continue being strong, try back, catch up, continue and sit and go at God’s feet. Each one these must be our motto, as if we could do that, we will surely remain within the will of God.
If we could do this, the net effect will probably be as follows:
10We pray you will live well for your Master, which makes him proud of you since you work hard in his orchard. As you understand more and more how God operates, you will find out how to perform your own work.
How I long for it! How I long to find a smile on God’s face when He appears in my activities.
Once more I understand that I must work harder at being. Like David, I beg God to take my hands along with his Holy Spirit and also to show me how. That’s what happens in the stillness – there in his toes God contours me and there that I get wisdom to make decisions daily. That’s where my faith develops powerful, where I could hope again, where I get guts, where I could get up from the ash, and at which I no more desire to give up.
Are you certain?
