What is God’s will for your life? Better yet, have you figured out what your purpose is? These are questions that constantly get thrown at you. Especially at a really young age! The truth is, it’s okay not to have a specific answer as long you have faith that God will work it all out!
The Ultimate Source
It’s quite literally insane that a generation today is supposed to have their whole life planned out by the time they graduate high school. From college seminars to guidance counselors, you rely on these resources to help you figure out what your life should look like in 10 years. Emphasis on “should“. I Mind you, these things are great but why do this generation let people who they barely know influence their life goals in such a way? I propose the only source we need to dictate what we should do with our lives is Jesus Christ.
God’s Will Is Best, Have Faith!
From personal experience, I knew that I didn’t want fear to dictate my life. So, right out of Highschool I decided to go to a non-credited ministry school. Of course, everyone’s journey is different and there’s so much freedom in that. But, I went in faith that God wanted me there despite what everyone else was doing. Unsure of what I was getting myself into, I hoped He would meet me there. He did…and it’s still one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my 22 years of life.
Faith vs. Fear
I say all this because of a quote I read last week by Christine Caine, Australian Evangelist. She wrote, “So often, we are paralyzed by the fear of missing God’s will. We literally do not move because we are waiting for 10 confirmations. Here’s the deal, most times you are going to have to step out in faith, to find out if it’s God. God is big enough to redirect you if you’re wrong.” Truth is, you don’t know what God’s will is until you find the will to take a chance.
Goodness of God
Be encouraged today and know that whatever God’s will for your life is, it’s good. Let Him be your ultimate source, ultimate influence, and loudest voice. Remember, He’s big enough to redirect you! Happy Adventuring! “And without faith, it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6)
