DON’T DO IT! Don’t take on what God does NOT give you to do! Don’t take on what is NOT His will for you! Don’t take on what is NOT a responsibility He has given you! Don’t take on what God has NOT given you to do now even if it is His will for a future date!
Pray to God in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Seek Him. Wait on Him. Hear Him. Obey Him. Believers in Jesus Christ as Lord are to follow Jesus Christ as Lord. We are to do what IS His will for us. We are NOT to do what is NOT His will for us.
Some of us myself very much included tend to take on more than He gives us and thereby can find ourselves distracted, overloaded, worn out, overwhelmed, unavailable to do what God DOES give us, bitter, angry, resentful, self-pitying. We dishonor and disobey the Lord when we try to run the show and walk off of God’s path for us. Regardless of whether or not we are well-intentioned.
We are not to lord it over our lives. We are not to reign on our little self-made ungodly thrones. We are not to orchestrate day in and day out what we do and how we live as though Jesus does not exist and is not Lord of the universe and of our lives. We are not to live for ourselves any longer. We are to live for the Lord Jesus Christ!
“and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.” 2 Corinthians 5:15
We are not to take on responsibilities, burdens, jobs, roles, relationships, opportunities, to-do lists, plans, agendas, dreams, ideas etc. that are NOT the will of God and that go against Him and His will for us.
We ARE to SEEK and DO the will of God almighty. Yes, God ALMIGHTY! ALMIGHTY God. We are NOT almighty. God is to be magnified and exalted and raised up and worshiped and praised and loved and adored and glorified above everything and everyone in the universe. For Jesus Christ is Lord forever and ever! We are to do HIS will NOT our will NOT the devil’s will NOT the world’s will. The Lord’s!
“Teach me to do Your will, For You are my God; Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness.” Psalms143:10
Pray to God. Trust Him to answer. His Holy Spirit who lives inside His followers leads, guides, and provides for His followers. God by His Holy Spirit and always in line with the Bible makes known His will to His children, servants, and followers all of which we are when we turn from our sins, believe in Christ as Lord and in His death and resurrection, and genuinely surrender our lives to Him and His ways and will for us and RECEIVE THE PROMISE OF EVERLASTING LIFE WITH HIM!
Let us humble ourselves and follow THE LORD JESUS CHRIST – this moment, this day, tomorrow, and forevermore! Glory be to God almighty!
“I delight to do Your will, O my God,…” Psalm 40:8
