The Life God Wants You To Live

“In their hearts people plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps” Pr 16:9

Here are three important truths to help you enjoy the life God wants you to live:

(1) Believe God wants you to succeed. Give up the unscriptural notion that this life has no value. God has a special work for you to do – here and now. (See Jer 29:11) You ask, “What defines success?” Answer: the progressive achievement of a God given role resulting in feeling good about yourself. “Carefully follow the terms of this covenant, so that you may prosper in everything you do.” (Dt 29:9) 

(2) Consult God before you set your goals. The Bible says, “People plan their course, but the Lord establishes our steps.” (Pr 16:9) If you’re constantly stressed out and confused, you may be on the wrong track. Go back and check with God; read your biblewhat has He told you to do? It’s His will for you to succeed in the following six areas: Spiritual, relational, physical, mental, social, and financial. “Whatever he does shall prosper.” (Ps 1:3) 

(3) Invest in yourself. “Though it cost all you have, get understanding.” (Pr 4:7) If you’re willing to spend money at fine restaurants but not on good books, you’re future is already determined. And the first book you need to invest in is a Bible. John writes, “And the Word was God.” (Jn 1:1) That means each time you read God’s word, you’re depositing more of God into you. Wow! Think how that affects your life. Cultivate a teachable spirit. “Let the wise listen and add to their learning.” (Pr 1:5) This is the life God wants you to live!
