Knowing And Enjoying God’s Will

‘The Lord is good to those who depend on Him, to those who search for Him.’ Lamentations 3:25 NLT

If you’re struggling spiritually today, here are three thoughts that will help you: First, realise that doing God’s will isn’t easy. Satan, your enemy, gives up nothing without a fight, and anxiety is one of his secret weapons. That’s why the Bible says, ‘Let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.’ (Galatians 6:9 NLT) Overcomers aren’t necessarily more educated or more talented than other people, they’re just more persistent. They push beyond the point at which others quit.

Second, believe that God’s will is for your total well-being. You are the offspring of a perfect God, so act like it. His covenant with you is forever, so think like it. Your total well-being is His desire and delight, so live like it. The apostle John wrote: ‘I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.’ (3 John 1:2 NASB)

Third, reach by faith for what God has promised you. Sickness acts like a thief. It can rob you of time with those you love, money that could be used to achieve your goals, and energy needed to fulfil God’s purpose for your life. The prophet Isaiah said, ‘Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows… and by His stripes we are healed.’ (Isaiah 53:4–5 NKJV) At the cross, Jesus purchased everything you need. So rise up in faith today and claim it, because as the Scripture says, ‘The Lord is good to those who depend on Him, to those who search for Him.’

My dear friend,
I lament often. God has plans to aid us and yet I work among those who hurt, are hurt by the worst things the secular world can throw at them.
There are times I lose contact with the fact God is good to those who seek after him- and I try to resolve social problems and suffering as if by my own understanding. I can respond to trauma experienced by people with education and skill alone (sugar!). It is grounding to have this confirmed- not by me alone do I respond, but the wonders of God working through me.
Thick and thin- He holds us and is constant (though we flutter here and there: yet seek after Him).
Indeed by His stripes we are healed... all is well, is well, with my soul: though I experience anguish for those I help.
Blessings in a massive way,
LB
