If we could just do this, then it will go nicely with us. We are in need of wisdom. We’re faced with many, many choices daily and on our own we don’t make it. That is why we need the Holy Spirit to shower us with intellect. Yes as Paul would say: 10… As you know more and more how God operates, you will learn how to do your work.
Searching for God’s will is nothing new. Paging throughout the Psalms, you find the great David calling out to God time after time, begging God to help him since he did not know what to do: Psalm 27:11 Point me down your highway, God; guide me along a well-lighted road; reveal my enemies whose side you’re on.
She informed him that when we follow Jesus, all goes well and we’ll know exactly what to do in each situation – in other words, we’ll understand what God’s will is. However, as soon as we choose not to follow Jesus, we are on our own and soon make the incorrect decisions.
But what does this imply in practice, once we must walk in God’s will every day? In the following few verses David finds wisdom and makes a few good ideas to help us find God’s will for our lives: I’m sure now I’ll see God’s goodness at the exuberant earth. Take heart. Do not stop. I will say it again: Stay with God.
Believe, hope, trust, be courageous, keep on being strong, try back, get up, hold on and sit and go at God’s feet. All these should be our motto, as if we can do that, we’ll surely remain within the will of God.
If we can do that, the net effect will be as follows:
10We pray you’ll live well for your Master, making him proud of you as you work hard in his orchard. As you understand more and more how God operates, you will find out how to do your work.
How I long for it! How I long to find a smile on God’s face when He appears at my activities.
Once again I realize that I should work harder at being. Like David, I beg God to take my hands along with his Holy Spirit and to show me how. That is what happens in the stillness – there in his toes God shapes me and there that I get wisdom to make choices every day. That is where my faith develops strong, where I can hope again, where I get courage, where I can get up out of the ash, and at which I no longer want to give up.
Are you certain?
Can you make enough time for God?
