“Anyone who loves Me will obey My teaching.” - John 14:23
Whenever you are trying to find out what God wants you to do, there are always two questions involved. One is your question and the other is God’s question. Your question is simple, “God, what do You want me to do?” God’s question is: “Are you already doing what you know I want you to do now? If so, will you do what I want you to do if I tell you?”
God is not obligated to guide you if you are not going to follow His guidance. He is not obligated to direct you if you are not going to follow His directions. Many of us need to just get honest with ourselves and realize that the real problem is not in finding God’s will in a situation, but doing it. We will only know God’s will for tomorrow if we are doing what we know is God’s will today.
If you are robbing God with your finances, living in sexual sin, neglecting God’s Word, or rejecting a command of God in your life, why should God guide you? You will never know the unknown will of God for your life until you are doing the known will of God for your life.
If you are not a Christian, God wants you to give your heart and your life to Him today so that He can guide you forever. If you are a Christian, God desires obedience in every area of your life. This is how we show our love to God…by obeying Him.
Application: Are you living in obedience to God right now?
