It’s easy for us Christian believers to say we want God’s will for our lives. It’s easy to say that we want his will for the world. But what we say is often at odds with what we do. Whose will are we really seeking most of the time? The litmus test is the way in which we interact with God. How we pray, how we worship, how we respond to his Word all reveal whose will we are truly seeking.
I admit that I’m not perfect. I don’t always seek God’s will over my own. But faith demands that I be circumspect. It demands the same from you. We have an obligation to examine ourselves; an obligation to examine our thoughts and actions and be honest about whether or not we are seeking God’s will over our own. And when such is the case, the obvious response is to humbly set ourselves aside and go after God’s will instead.
