Live to glorify God…

Does the thought of living a life that is glorifying to God, fill you with so much joy and excitement that you are overflowing and about to burst with happiness? Or does it fill you with so much fear and trembling that you are too afraid to continue?

Colossians 3:16-17
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
 
We have all been created with one purpose and that is to glorify God in all that we do. That means always giving our task at hand our full attention whether we like the task we are doing or not. It can be as simple as washing dishes, making our beds, doing some laundry, even going to work and church can become tasks that we just do because they are there to be done. But God requires more, He expects us to have a cheerful heart and to be glad that we are able to do such tasks.
 
Church however should not be a task, it should be somewhere we go to minster to others and to receive ministry. It is a very important part of life and without fellowship with other believers I believe that every other part of our lives begin to suffer.
 
We only get a very short amount of time here on earth to complete all that God has required of us. We therefore need to be focused on the things he has placed in our hearts and lives and not try to fill them with meaningless things.
 
Some people are called to be business people, others doctors, accountants, lawyers, teachers and Ministers, the list can go on and on. Some are called to be writers and speakers, or musicians. And then there are some who often feel that they are missing out or not giving there all, these are often the stay at home parents, who often don’t have the latest and greatest things, often cannot afford fancy clothes or to buy a house.
 
However these people just like all the other people mentioned and those that haven’t been mentioned, are just as important to and valued by God. Raising the future generation of this world is a very big task and not one to be taken lightly.
 
So as long as you are doing what God has called you to do and you know within your spirit and your heart that you are at the place He currently wants you, whether or not the sun is shining or the clouds are our, you can rest in the security of knowing your Lord and Saviour is in complete control and you have nothing to fear.
 
My quest for today is to make sure I stop and take time to confirm with God that I am where he wants me to be and then to thank him for all he has given me and all that is to come.
 
There is no season He hasn’t planned and no circumstance He is not in control of.
 
Don’t be afraid to dream big, as long as they are Gods dreams for your life here on earth!
