God’s will September 26, 2021 – Posted in: Jadesola's musings
“Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.’ But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.’
Matthew 7:21-23 NLT
Knowing that the matrix of success with God is different makes it scary.
The people in this place were not unbelievers, they were actually believers.
They had results, physical results, and they could have been celebrated, praised, they Might even have been called God’s general but God might be saying I never knew you.
Physical results are not proof of the presence or absence of God, Doing God’s will is.
Success with God is doing the will of the Father. Whether you’re getting results in 10s, 100s or 1000s.
Whether you’re serving locally or globally, whether you’re preaching to a congregation of 10 or 100s or 1000s what’s important is doing it according to the Father’s will.
Move one cm out and God doesn’t know you 😢
With God success is personal, the will of God is only known by the Father, which will be revealed to you as you work and walk with him.
You’re here to do the will of the one who sent you.
For I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to do my own will. John 6:39 This is the ultimate!
May we be healed of the addiction to people’s approval and live our lives according to pattern of he who sent us. Amen
