The Will Of God for You

Posted by Heather McNab on Wednesday, May 7, 2014
Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.
 
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 MSG

So many people want to know what is the will of God for their lives.
There are standards that the bible lays out for us. I trust that if you start with these than the calling and purpose of your life will line up and God will cause great things to happen for you as you walk it out.

This verse above in the message version of the bible is very clear on how we are suppose to live.

First of all, we are to be cheerful no matter what. That is hard to do in the face of challenge, pain, turmoil, tragedy, etc.. but it would not be in the bible if we were not able to do it. This takes a change of mind, it takes making a choice to be cheerful. it makes people wonder what you are up to. 
In this world this is so much depression, fear, etc..that when someone is cheerful, that makes people ask questions. 
Some won't understand, others will be happy with you, but  know that being cheerful is a choice you make for YOU..not anyone else.


To be cheerful means to be in good spirits, pleasant, bright, whole-hearted, ungrudging.  
If we acted like this, we would be a shining light to the dark world around us and theres no telling what can happen.

2nd of all, we are to pray all the time.  
What does this mean? it means to be in fellowship with the Father all the time. He desires to talk to you, love you, spend time with you,even throughout our busy days. Acknowledge Him in your ways, in your days and see how things start coming together for you!

Next we are to be thankful no matter what happens.  
Being grateful is a heart attitude. it is not based on circumstances or what happens in your life. You only attract what you are thankful for. 
Gratefulness is such a beautiful thing. Being thankful brings honor, respect and also creates favor in your life.

Now if you focus on these 3 things, this is the will of God for your lives in Christ Jesus.
Its quite simple, yet being Cheerful, prayerful, and grateful, are 3 things that lack in the body of Christ.

Too many times we see sad, broken and complaining people trying to be something they arn't.  

So today i challenge you to live like this and be
Cheerful
Prayerful and
Grateful

and see the changes that happen in your life TODAY!!

God bless you all,

Heather Anne
