Get out there

“One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.” Psalm 27:4

It is quite likely that the most popular prayer request is to hear the will of God for one’s life. Once you believe that He is as well pleased with you as with Jesus (see The Great Thought post) you are in a good place to hear.

First, have faith that He will absolutely provide everything you need. If that’s the case, you might be listening more intently – and perhaps no longer dismissing His leading into things you don’t think are possible. Second, put the Kingdom of God first, so in that way you’re not afraid about your provision and protection in life. Third, wean yourself off the pleasures of the world. I use the term “wean” because it’s a slow process, and one that’s never complete.

Finally, develop a few healthy disciplines/habits that will grow your spirit. Spend time with God in quiet, reflective prayer, as well as in times of worship (either words or song), and for inquiring about what His will for you, day by day. Believe that until your soul is truly satisfied, and your spirit fully alive, you have not started walking in the fullness of your assignment. Desperately hunger for it with as much energy as you can muster. Don’t hold onto any unforgiveness, grudges or resentment. Be totally available and generous with your life and money.

"Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32

And also remember Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

A great "secret" that eludes people is not from lack of disclosure. They get well announced but are ignored because they are counter-intuitive. Jesus had much to teach that fell on deaf ears for that

It's critical for your peace of mind to get what Jesus was saying in the heart of the Sermon on the Mount. At the end of Chapter 6, Jesus explains how we can be released into putting God first and see
