Our Wants vs. God’s Wants For Us

July 7, 2012 — 5 Comments

Hebrews 12:11 “No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.”

When God takes away something good in your life, it’s not just to take it way. It’s because He is making room for something better.

We HAVE to recognize our calling. The question is: are you willing to allow God take away something you want now in order to make room for something in your life you ULTIMATELY want?

Following God’s will for your life takes sacrifice, trimming your selfish desires and replace them with Godly desires.

    This post came at the right time. I actually read this verse a few days ago & it kept haunting me. I’m posting another post later about the “stir” feeling that’s been at me all summer long…but for now this post sums up my thoughts & feelings.
