I will always show you where to go. I’ll give you a full life in the emptiest of places—firm muscles, strong bones. You’ll be like a well-watered garden, a gurgling spring that never runs dry. –Isaiah 58:11 MSG
Do you have a when-and-then mentality? According to Pastor Rick Warren, this is a choice problem. You are as happy as you choose to be. Happiness is a choice. Choose to enjoy what God has provided for you now. We always have dreams and certain things we strive for, but don’t let that affect your attitude now.
God provides for each of His children when they make a choice to let Him into their daily lives. Ask and you will receive as it says in Matthew 7:7. Seek God daily when making decisions. A wonderful way to greet your heavenly Father each day is to thank Him for your life and all He has done for you.
Seek His wisdom, and allow His light to shine through so you can lead others to Jesus. Don’t get stuck in “when this happens then” I will be happy. Choose to live a God-directed life and you will be complete as you walk with the Holy Spirit by your side.
- Know without a doubt that “when” you seek God first, “then” all things will fall into place.
- Philippians 4:11 (MSG): “Actually, I don’t have a sense of needing anything personally. I’ve learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances.”
