Three Minute Reboot: God’s Will

I want the fullness of God in my life rather than something that seems mediocre. I was reading in Haggai today about how the Israelites were to rebuild a new temple; however, they decided that rebuilding the temple wasn’t of much importance; instead they were making homes for themselves. Although they were making lives for themselves, they were never truly satisfied: “You have sown much, and bring in little; You eat, but do not have enough; You drink, but you are not filled with drink; You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm; And he who earns wages, earn wages to put into a bag with holes. “ Haggai 1: 6.

As I meditated on these words, I thought about my life. Am I seeking my own plans, trying to fulfill the desires I have in this world? Better yet, does my life show I’m open to God’s direction, wherever that might lead me? I don’t want to just live a mediocre life. I want the best God has for me, not just the good things of this world..

Ready, Set, Reflect!
Stop for moment and think about the things that take up your time and focus. Where is God on that list? Where is the Word on that list? Where is rest on that list?

Lord, I thank You for always seeking what’s best for me. When I wonder off the path, You will not leave me out there wondering. You love me enough to continue to show me the way. Your love is enough!

John 10:10 says, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
