CORAL GABLES, Fla., July 30, 2012 — One of the biggest questions Christians ask is: “What is God’s will for my life?” As they wait for a big “sign” from above, they often experience fear over the possibility of missing “it” (“it” being God’s perfect plan). I’ve witnessed so many people sit in indecision, afraid to take even the slightest step forward, in fear that they will somehow get off course and miss God’s best. I have to admit, I’ve often been one of those people.
Well today I’ve got some good news for you! God’s plan for our lives is pretty simple. We are called to love the Lord our God with all of our heart, soul, and mind and to love those He puts in our path. As we walk in this love, we are called to glorify Him in the way we live our lives and interact with others on a daily basis. How can we know how we are to live? Get in His Word and you’ll find God’s will for every day living.
So often we want God’s BIG plan for our life when He is just waiting for us to walk in obedience to His Word on a daily basis: to walk in integrity, love, compassion, generosity, trust, forgiveness, and justice - to name a few.
It doesn’t matter how old we are, or what gender or race we may be. It doesn’t matter what we do for a living or how much money we have. It doesn’t matter if we are healthy or facing health issues. It doesn’t matter if we live in the city or in the depths of the jungle. Whoever we are, wherever we are, God’s will remains. We are called to love and serve Him, and to love and serve His people.
Every day we come into contact with people, whether in our homes, ministries, or businesses. During these interactions we have an incredible opportunity to touch the world for Christ, to bring hope, joy, and peace into a hurting world through our love and service. You don’t have to head off on a huge mission trip to do this, you can do it right where you are today!
One of the greatest joys I’ve experienced over the past decade with In His Wakes has been to see God take something so simple - water sports - and use it to touch tens of thousands of lives. How? Because of love and service. Through the simple act of showing unconditional love in the water and on the shores to at-risk youth, God has been glorified and lives has been changed.
