I Like This But….

“Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10

I was thinking about something I liked when I remembered this is not the way to make decisions as a believer in Christ as Lord. Just because I like something doesn’t mean it’s the Lord’s will. Sometimes it is. Sometimes it isn’t. I may like something, but this doesn’t mean I should do it or have it or go there or buy it or work for it or anything at all. I have learned to seek the Lord and to trust He will make clear WHAT HE LIKES.

I don’t want to live according to what I like. I want to live according to what Jesus likes. What He wants. What He desires. Because I don’t want to live for me. I want to live for Him. Oh, sure, this can be tough sometimes. But it’s always rewarding when I choose the way of Jesus.

You may like something, friend, BUT. Is it the will of the Lord? Seek Him and find out. Then do what HE DESIRES. What HE WANTS. What HIS PERFECT WILL IS! For Christ’s sake. Yes!
