Understanding the Lord's Will 2

Audio Version:
Ephesians 5:17 (NET) For this reason do not be foolish, but be wise by understanding what the Lord’s will is.

After Lara completed her university education, she got two jobs in different cities. Because she was someone driven by the desire to please the Lord, she spent time seeking His face to know which job the Lord was leading her to chose, but the more she waited on the Lord, the more it became clearer to her that she was not to relocate but remain in the town she dwelt. This meant she was not going to be taking any of the jobs with mouth-watering offers. It was hard for her to accept, but she knew the voice of the Lord and was sure the Lord didn't want her to leave that town at that time. She stayed back in the town and didn't go for any of the jobs. Her mother just couldn't understand her and started getting concerned that her daughter was becoming too fanatical and misled. But with time, it was clear to everyone that Lara made the right and wisest choice. Two months after declining the jobs, she met the man she eventually married in that town. They had a very fruitful and prosperous life together. Lara ended up being the CEO of a very successful company that became as big as any of the companies she would have gone to work for.

When she was in her fifties, and she looked back at those decisions she made as a girl because of her commitment to doing the will of the Lord, it was evident to her that the wisest thing for a believer to do with his life is to understand the will of the Lord and walk in it. She would have missed the glorious life God planned for her if she was not devoted to doing the will of the Lord.

Go into today remembering that the wisest thing you can do with your life is understanding the will of the Lord and striving to fulfill it to the letter.

Prayer: Lord, help me understand and walk in your will for me. Deliver me from the distractions of the devil. Amen.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
