"For after David had done the will of God in his own generation, he died and was buried with his ancestors." Acts 13:36 NLT
What is the Lord's will for your life? It is His will that all come to salvation. It is His will to bless us. It is His will that we worship and glorify Him. But what specifically is His will for you?
The Bible says that after David had done the will of God in his own generation, he died. He had completed his purpose. From the line of David our savior Jesus would come into the world. David knew what his purpose in life was and he completed it. Many of us wander from one event, one addiction, one relationship, one job, to another, always searching for our purpose and the meaning of our life.
The Bible says; "For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago." Ephesians 2:10 NLT
Our first step in recognizing our call is to have a relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Next, what has God put on your heart? What are you compelled to do? What cause stirs your heart? What talents do other Christ-followers see in you? What need is God calling you to meet? What strengths and personal failures have prepared you for God's purpose in your life?
None of us are here by accident. We are here for a purpose greater than ourselves. Ask God to confirm His purpose for you. Maybe it is taking a step of obedience in a certain direction. Then as you go, God will reveal more to you.
Remember, God uses the weak and foolish things of the "world" to bring Him glory. If you feel inadequate to the call He has for you, good! That means you have more room in your life for His Holy Spirit to operate.
May it be said of us that we fulfilled God's will in our generation!
"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. And now the prize awaits me—the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of His return. And the prize is not just for me but for all who eagerly look forward to His appearing." 2Timothy 4:7,8 NLT
