How is being in God's will like food?
It energizes us and keeps us going! There is nothing more exhilarating, nothing that makes your heart pump harder than realizing you are exactly where God wants you to be, doing exactly what he wants you to do - it's a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction to know you are who you were created to be. When you are in it, you don't need anything else to complete you! It feels so right - it tastes so good - and all your joy and contentment is wrapped up in living life to the fullest it can be. It nourishes your relationship with God, so that you get stronger and closer to him the longer you follow him and do his will. And God can use it to bring people together, as I wrote about the other night: God's will brings many hands and feet together to accomplish his plans that are bigger than any of us on our own.
"'My food,' said Jesus, 'is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work...'"
Can you say that? Do you depend on God's will daily, crave it like really good food? Does it make your stomach growl just longing for it? Taste and see how good His will is!
