We all know that every moment in our lives or in the different situations we encounter in our daily lives we are asked to live according to the will of God.Sometimes it is easy and straight forward,at other times it is complicated.How can our faith in God be reflected by our daily actions?
One way we can begin the process of doing God’s will everyday is to pray more regularly and frequently.By this ,I mean we humbly pray for ourselves.We acknowledge our weaknesses before God and ask Him to help us.
If we want to succeed in our studies ,business,work or relationships we tell God about it.What has this got to do with doing His will every day?Everything! If we do not tell God about the things that bother us,those things will occupy our minds and put us under a lot of stress.
When we are under stress ,we may sometimes act on the first thought that comes to our minds without presenting those thoughts to God first.However,if we are used to presenting every thing about ourselves to God, we shall get used to seeing God both as our father and friend.A good and trusted friend is someone you share your inner most thoughts with.
According James 1:21-23 , “Abraham our Father justified his faith by works ,when he offered his son Isaac upon the alter….You see that faith was active along with his works,and faith was completed by works…..Abraham believed God ,and it was reckoned him righteousness and he was called the friend of God.”
We too have to become friends of God by how we use our daily actions to show or demonstrate our fiath in God in various situations we find ourselves.
