Doing God's Will
I take joy in doing your will, my God, for your instructions are written on my heart.”
Doing God's will is not only obedient it (usually) makes me feel good or satisfied. Knowing that what I'm doing is for God or required by God gives me a great feeling. The Lord placed me on this Earth, so I can't even imagine not doing what God has commanded me.
I say that and feel that way, but...And you know what happens when you read "but..." There is an excuse coming! I know that I should do what God has commanded me, but there are sometimes when I don't. I am assuming I am growing as a Christian because when I don't obey him, I feel guilty about it.
Dear God, I pray that you will keep your instructions written on my heart for as long as I live. Lord, you are amazing and have done amazing things in my life, so doing Your will is the absolute least that I can do for you. And I want to do so much more as one of Your disciples. Please show me how I can serve and honor you. God, I love you! Amen
