Spiritual Sundays ~ The Rock Church
A wonderful benefit of visiting San Diego is attending The Rock Church with my family. http://www.therocksandiego.org/ Pastor Miles' sermon today was one of my favorite topics: Keys to God's Will, using the basis of Matthew 7:21:
Not everyone who says to me, "Lord Lord,"
will enter the Kingdom of Heaven
but only he who does
the will of my Father who is in Heaven.
I'm sharing thoughts that I don't want to forget about this message:
God's will is worth finding out! 1 Cor. 2:9 -10 says: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him, but God has revealed it to us by His Spirit." The world and people will not always reveal what I'm to do to be in God's will, but His Word will. Let it speak to me! God will never contradict Himself. His will brings life!
God's will is a process. It is not a science; it requires practice.
I'm realizing as a methodical thinker, I need to flee "patterns" in my thinking. There's no box God can remain in and I must think creatively. Take a step of action; God will show me if I'm on track. This is freeing as opposed to stuffy analyzing and fear of stepping out.
What about when God remains silent? Not sure what to do yet? When I seek His will, I need to remember that His goal is to make me holy. I'm on a journey with a long-term goal and even if I did know the end result of God's will in a certain situation, I need to focus only on today letting Him mold and shape me into his image. Integrity is built on surrender.
