Resting on Faith

The best way to discern God’s Will is to pray and hear from God. We cast our cares upon Him, because He cares for us (1 Peter 5:7; Psalm 55:22).

God commenced our life at conception with each day already planned out and the entirety of our days numbered (Psalm 139:13,16). He created us with a specific purpose in mind, and He has a perfect will for each and every one of us (Ephesians 2:10). Are we fulfilling that purpose?

 

Christ will live this wonderful purpose through our life by His Spirit. He gives us both the desire and the power to accomplish God’s Will for our life (Philippians 2:13). We abandon all confidence in our self, our flesh and our human abilities. When we choose to totally relinquish our plans and surrender to His faithfulness, we enter into His divine rest (Hebrews 4:10). We live in reverence to Christ as our Lord (1 Peter 3:15).

 

Depending completely and ceaselessly on God, we do the works, which God calls us to perform with our life (Ephesians 2:10). We love those He leads us to love, pray for whom He calls us to pray for, share the gospel with those whom we feel Him nudging us to talk to and serve those He directs us to serve. Our whole goal in life is to bring God glory in everything we think, say, feel and do.

 

We live in victory, which Jesus won for us on Calvary’s cross, and we do greater works than He did because His Spirit abides in us. There are no expectations in our heart, no demands or requirements that we hold out for God. We do not dictate to Him what He should do, but we entirely surrender to His will for our life. The more we walk in the Spirit, the more we want to walk in the Spirit.

 

Our confidence in God comes through the faith of Christ in us (2 Corinthians 3:4). We entertain no ambition or desires apart from knowing Christ (Romans 15:13). Having a productive day in the things of God and for the Kingdom of God is the most fulfilling time we can ever experience. We wait on God’s direction, through His Spirit within us, and we see His hand on everything in our life.

 

Prayer:

Father God, thank You for filling us with Your Spirit at the moment we open our hearts to accept Christ’s sacrifice for our sins. Thank You for leading us each moment of the day by Your Spirit and for keeping us in the center of Your will. We enjoy the fellowship of Christ and we dwell in You as Your Spirit dwells in us. We depend on You absolutely and we trust You to give us both the desire and the power to serve You with our life (Philippians 2:13).

 

Thought for the Day:

We rest in the faith of the Son of God, who loves us and gave Himself for us. – Galatians 2:20
