The Lord has a plan for your life. He has a perfect will and a specific course in mind for you. However, many Christians are frightened of God’s will. To them, the idea of a divine plan isn’t attractive, because it requires a great deal of faith in the Father. And while we are usually quick to believe God for someone else’s needs, we are often slow to trust Him with our own.
To make matters more confusing, many people misunderstand what the Lord’s will actually is. Some believe it’s a special bit of knowledge that He imparts only to super-spiritual people. Others think it is simply His call to do something dangerous, painful, or uncomfortable. Too often, God’s will is seen as something we have to do whether we want to or not.
The truth is, God’s will isn’t something to fear. It is meant to give us clarity of purpose and power to live a life of abundant blessing. It provides us with direction at every turn and answers to important questions.
In an age where even our cars can receive real-time, turn-by-turn directions from satellites floating high in space, why do so many of us resist that kind of guidance for our very life? Most likely, it’s because we want some advice about how to proceed but prefer to do the driving ourselves. We may let God suggest where we should go, but we want to be the one who holds the steering wheel.
The Lord knows where you’re going and how to get you there safely. Don’t trust Him with just the final destination; let Him guide each step of the journey.
