Sony’s Thoughts: When My Will Becomes His

The will is a powerful thing. Especially first-born and only children tend to have a strong will. We want what we want when we want it, and we don’t always want to wait for what we want. Sometimes what we want isn’t what God wants for us, though, and then we have a choice. Do we whine and complain or push to get it anyway, or do we trust Him, knowing that He knows what is best for us? As we draw closer to the Father, we begin to see more clearly. We still don’t always understand but we know that all things work together for good to those who love Him, those whom He has called for His purposes. Eventually, as we hit the place of complete surrender, our will begins to change and nothing matters but pleasing the God who loves us much more than we deserve.

This is my goal: to get so close to Him that all my desires are being met because they’re His desires … where it’s no longer I living but Christ living in me. I believe this is the point we find true joy in its fullness.

If you have a desire that God doesn’t seem to be granting, it may be a timing thing or it may be that He has a better plan for you. Keep drawing near to God and ask Him to make your desires conform to His. I’ve no doubt He will do so if you ask Him in sincerity.

Have a blessed week. Keep shining for Jesus. It won’t be long and we’ll be leaving here. Praise the Lord!
