Nothing matters more than knowing God’s purposes for your life, and nothing can compensate for not knowing them.
This quote got my attention, because it seems very out of touch in the world in which we live today. At least, I think this is true in North America where I live. Most TV commercials talk about how you need to live life for yourself and make sure YOUR needs are met first before worrying about the needs of others.
The things we listen to and read have slowly changed our thinking to be a culture of ME first; then if there is anything left I will think about doing a little something for someone else as long as it does not cost me in a sacrificial way.
When you get to the point that you desire God’s purposes first for your life and want to serve Him more than anything else, it changes your whole perspective to one of ‘what does God want me to do’ rather than ‘what do I want to do.’
You are made to serve God, and that is the only way you will be truly fulfilled as you go about your everyday life. Even though you are losing control of self when you give the control to God, you are really gaining a life that you can never imagine.
The things of this world will pale in comparison to the awesomeness of seeing God work in your life. To be used by God in a supernatural way is an awesome thing, and it is the only way to feel truly fulfilled in this life.
God is taking your years here on earth to prepare you for heaven where you will live forever in a place of majesty and beauty that can’t be compared to even the most beautiful place on earth. Even if you live to be 100, what is that compared to an eternity of forever and ever?
Give the control to God and allow Him to use you in ways you never imagined!
