Morning Thrive - "Obey"

Written by Pastor Craig Etheredge  |  Found in: Morning Thrive


Hey everybody! We’re talking about how to know God’s will for my life, and yesterday I said, “Well you need to seek to know God, before you know God’s will.” But here’s another thing- ask God to show you if you’re actually doing what He wants you to be doing, now. A lot of times we say, “God, I want to know your will for my life,” when God has already revealed His will to us through the Bible. You know, 98% of what you need to know to live your life is already articulated in God’s Word. So, are you already obeying what He’s already said? I think about 2 Timothy 2:22, when it says, “Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.” In other words, he is saying, ”Hey, there are some things you need to stay away from, and you need to flee from these things. And then you need to run toward some things, whatever is pure, bright and good, and you need to run with some good people that will encourage you.” So, let me ask you, “Are you doing those things?” Because why would God reveal more to you if you’re not doing what He has already revealed to you? Do you see? So, why don’t you start by saying, “God, there are some areas in my life that I know are not right. Lord reveal them to me. And God, there are some things that you’ve already revealed out of your Word. I need to be in your Scriptures. I need to be in church, and I need to be serving.” Are you doing those things, and are you running with the right kind of people? When you do those things, then the rest of it God quickly reveals to you. Alright? See you tomorrow.
