God’s Will and God’s Way
Learning something new can be challenging at times. But once you discover how to do something new it can be rewarding and great. Learning to do God’s will can be challenging but the reward is worth it all.
In Psalm 143 David is crying out to God for assistance. It’s a desperate cry for help indeed. But right in the middle of this song, David seeks to know the will of God because he knows it is the best thing. He knows that God is in control of all things but he wants God to reveal His will to him. Obviously he knows he is going through this storm for a reason but he wants God to show him what he needs to learn from it. This is the best attitude to have when we face difficult and trying times. Instead of praying for God to remove our trials we should face them with a perspective that God is trying to teach us something.
Just think about all of the challenges that David faced during his life. He was the youngest and smallest of his brothers but still knew he had a purpose. He took on the biggest and strongest giant and experienced victory. He committed many sins but found forgiveness through God’s love and grace. He lost a child who was only a few days old but knew the child was with God in Heaven. The list can go on and on but David was always aware that God was deepening his faith and increasing his spiritual strength. That is how we need to look at our own life.
As you seek to learn God’s will and way for your life, count it all joy when you suffer for the cause of Christ.
