God’s Will

1 Thessalonians 5:18 Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

When you are looking for the will of God, the first place to consult is his revealed Word. Here it says that his will for us is to give thanks. In all circumstances. Now that ain’t easy. It’s easy enough to give thanks in joy, in peace, in love, in the sunshine. But what about giving thanks in the rain, in the snow, in the depths, even in death? Note that we are to give thanks in all these things, not for all these things.

Now sometimes we want to know God’s will without wanting to do God’s already revealed will. We want to know God’s will in what job to apply for but we are not applying God’s already revealed job of giving God thanks in being unemployed.

God will make every season of life work together for good. Today, start giving thanks in whatever circumstance you are in. You will find your hopes lifted and your thoughts coming into line with God’s. You will find yourself doing… His will.
