What Does The Lord Require

Blank Facebook Post (16)

Have you ever found yourself pleading with God to show you what to do? How to please and serve Him…but not knowing how?

Well, here is a good place to start: Micah 6:8, we need to handle those around us justly — practicing patience and dealing with others in fairness, without partiality. We need to practice mercy — blessing others in need with what they don’t deserve but so greatly need. We need to walk humbly with our God.

It’s interesting to note that although there is action involved, each of those requirements starts with a soft and loving heart. We won’t act justly if we harbor resentment or hate. We won’t show kindness and mercy if we seek to serve ourselves. And a prideful heart will always walk ahead of God.  Finding God’s will for your life is really pretty simple. He wants all of your heart. He wants a surrendered life.

Maybe all God is asking of us is to stand for what is right … to choose kindness … and to walk closely to Him, submitting our will daily.

As for me, I want to embrace all that God has for me, and that means obeying what He’s already shown me.

I hope God’s Word encourages you today. Maybe it really is this simple. Act justly. Love mercy. Walk humbly with God. Now, the choice is yours.

Father, please make of me what you will. As you fashion me, please bless me as I seek to be a person of justice, mercy, and humility. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
