Want – Five Minute Friday #FMF

Want – Five Minute Friday #FMF

What do I want? What does God want? Are the two compatible? Once again I think it comes down to our life’s purpose (which changes in seasons).

I am joining Five Minute Friday writers with a prompt of want
…and write for five, yes five minutes. 

want

Jeff Goins helped me find my focus at this point in time – God’s Word.

He asked:

What do you like?
What are you good at?
How can you help others?

After reading this statement found in The Art of Work by Jeff Goins:

When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it (Paul Coelho).

I changed it to follow what God wants:

If you are in God’s will, all your passions and abilities will open doors for God’s glory (Janis Cox 2016).

We need to pay attention to where God is leading us – that will show us what He wants. Don’t tell your life what you want, listen to God and watch where He leads.

More and more I am becoming aware that God leads me to where He wants me to go.

From a study called Experiencing God by Blackaby I remember one important lesson. Be aware. Pay attention to God and He will guide you in the next step. Be open.

But I have also learned that I can take a step in any direction (it is good to move) and God will tell me if I am going in the right direction and correct me if He needs to.

If you ask for things from life instead of from God, you ask amiss (Oswald Chambers).

Knock on God’s door. Spend time with Him so you will want what He wants.

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19, NIV).
