I love watching movies that have a twist at the end. One of the most memorable is “The Sixth Sense”. The entire story followed Dr. Malcolm Crowe as he tried to help a young boy that could see “spirits” while also trying to restore a distant relationship with his wife. In the final few minutes, all of our assumptions about the story changed as we discovered Dr. Crowe had actually been murdered and he was one of the spirits Cole could speak to. I love this kind of twisting plotline in movies…but not in real life.
We need to know certain unshakeable truths to confidently trust in something. I fundamentally believe that when you recognize what is true and trustworthy, you will choose to seek it. Yesterday, I encouraged you to seek to know God’s will for your life to live out. You may find that difficult so your first decision truly may be, “Do I believe that I can know God’s will and trust it?”
If you are a believer in Jesus, you may say that you believe it is possible and true, but do your actions demonstrate that truth? Paul talks about God’s will in this way…
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:1–2 (ESV)
Truth: It is possible to know and follow God’s will.
Question: What am I pursuing that honors God?
