What is the Will of God?

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18New International Version (NIV)

16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

For my daily devotion, I use Sweet Blessings Scripture Writing Text.  It’s great! She provides a passage of scripture that you write out and you can meditate on it, write out your thoughts, etc.  This year she has been creating theme-based options for each month.

This month the topic is prayer. Something I need to do more of. As I read yesterday’s passage, the one above, I had to smile. How often had I heard (and said, even to myself) “What is God’s will for my life?” This passage gives us a good start on what it is.

  1. Rejoice always – not just when I feel like it. ALWAYS.
  2. Pray continually – If I’m praying I can’t be complaining!
  3. Give Thanks in ALL circumstance – hmmm… not just for the good things in life but the bad ones as well.

Maybe not the answer to all life’s questions, but a great place to start.
