You won’t spend the rest of your lives chasing your own desires, but you will be anxious to do the will of God.1 Peter 4:2
Anxious to do His Will
When you are focused on the things of God and his will, you will find so much more joy in life then when you are enthralled with your own pleasures. A life spent glorifying the Lord is a life that will be rewarded not only here on earth but also in heaven. When you spend your life chasing after your own happiness, you will come up empty every time because happiness is only temporary. Especially selfish happiness.
Are you anxious to do the will of God? If you are anxious to do his will, then you will wake up every morning with a renewed purpose, wanting to please only him and not man. The decisions you made and the words you say will all be based on your motivation. If you are only wanting to satisfy your desires, then everything you do will be from that. However, if you allow God to be your motivation, you’ll find joy in serving him continuously.
A Prayer to Remember
May I live to please you and you alone. May I not focus on my own desires, but on your will for my life. Amen.
