Doing God's Will

Doing the will of God from the heart.  Ephesians 6:6

   We are admonished to seek out the will of the Lord. In Ephesians 5:17 we read. "Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is."
   Some people, however, misunderstand the will of God. They think it must be a harsh, joyless thing, intended to make us miserable. But listen: God's will comes from God's love.
  If you love someone, will you want to make him miserable? Will you go out of your way to punish him if he doesn't do exactly what you tell him to? No, of course not not if you really love him.
  The same is true with God. God loves you, and because He loves you. He cares what happens to you. He loves you too much to let you wander aimlessly through life, without meaning or purpose. The Bible says, "You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy"  (Ps. 16:11).
  Covet God's will for your life more than anything else.  To know God's will and to do it is life's greatest joy.
