What is God's will for You?

"Rejoice always;
 pray without ceasing;
 in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Much has been written and spoken about knowing God's will. There may be circumstances in our lives when we seek to know His will regarding a job, or home, or some other decision we're about to make. However, there are scriptures such as this one that make it clear what God's will is for us all the time. We are to rejoice in knowing Him in all situations. Stay in constant communication with Him throughout the day (we don't have to be on our knees with heads bowed to talk to God; I'm speaking to Him right now as I write this). And no matter what is going on in our lives, we are to have thankful hearts. Even in the trials of life we can find reasons to thank God; our salvation being one. All this we are empowered to do through our relationship with Christ.


  1. I posted this verse on my facebook, before I read your blog. We were on the same page today. It can be hard to always rejoice, but with His strength all things are possible. Love the picture.

  2. Thank you, Sue. You are the model for rejoicing in the hard times.


I appreciate your comments and read each one.
