Living with the End in Mind - Tuesday's Dose - 26th July 2016

"For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad." - 2 Corinthians 5:10 .

One night Diane Sawyer was interviewing Billy Graham on ABC News. She asked the question, "Billy, when you die, how do you want people to remember you?" Billy said, "I don't know what people will think of me, but what I'd really like
is to hear the Lord say to me when I get to Heaven,
'Well done, good and faithful servant.'" Then he paused and looked at her and said, "But I don't think that He will."

We would think that if anyone was going to hear this statement from God, it would be Billy Graham. But what I think Dr. Graham meant was that while what we do for God is important, loving God for who he is is considerably more important and significant that what we do for God.

I don't know who first coined the phrase/s, "Living with the end in mind" and "Living life backwards." But the idea is that if what we want said of us at the end of life's journey—especially by God when we stand before him face to face—we need to clearly define our God-given life purpose today. And then we need to start living now to ensure that we fulfill this purpose. That is, we need to live life with the end of it in mind.

So my question to you, Dear Reader, is this: "When you die, how do you want people to remember you and what do you want God to say to you?"

Prayer:  Our Heavenly Father, 
Please help me to clearly define my God-given life purpose and what I want to hear you say to me when I die—and help me to start living today with this end in mind. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus
Loving Name I Pray, 

Have a blessed Tuesday and God Bless You.

Discovering God's Will for Your Life - Sunday's Dose - 24th July 2016

"I take joy in doing your will, my God, for your
instructions are written on my heart."  - Psalm 40:8.

A Daily Dose Devotional Reader asks, "How does one know that God is speaking to him or her? I am very confused because I do not know what God wants me to do with my life."

In younger days I used to struggle with the same question; that is, how can I know the will of God for my life? The following comes from what I learned:

First, and most important, is that it is always God's will for us to put God first in our life and live in harmony with what his Word, the Bible, teaches.

Second, ask God to help you discover what your God-given life purpose is, and then do what is necessary to fulfill this purpose. This will be achieved by using your natural gifts and talents to serve God—and we serve him by serving/helping people.

Third, when using your God-given gifts and talents, you will enjoy and find fulfillment in the work you do (either paid or volunteer). Referring to Jesus, David, the Psalmist,  wrote: "I take joy in doing your will, my God." When we live in harmony with and do the will of God, we, too, will find joy and fulfillment.

Fourth, unless we have a "specific call" from God for a specific task such as being a missionary (or other ministry), we can do any of a number of things and still be doing God's will. For instance, picture God's will as traveling on a "train" that will take you to heaven when your life on earth is ended. While God is in charge of that train, we have all the freedom to move around in that train involved
in many and varied activities and doing the work in which we find fulfillment.

Fifth, realize that God is not co-dependent. He will give wisdom and guidance if we ask him to (See Proverbs 3:5-6) but he doesn't make our decisions for us. So don't wait for a special vision, just put to use the talents you have in serving others through your local church, a para-church organization, or with a volunteer service organization.

Sixth, every morning pray and commit and trust your life and way to God and trust him to lead you in the way that is best for you to go. I have prayed this prayer almost every day since my youth and, as I look back, I can see how God has answered this prayer in so many ways I never would have dreamed possible.

Prayer: "Our Heavenly Father, 
Please help me to discover my God-given life purpose, to live in harmony with your will, and to develop and use my God-given gifts and talents in a way that will best serve you and fulfill your purpose for my life—and therein find joy and fulfillment. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Sunday!
