Where Do You Fit?
After I preached at a certain Bible college, one of the students approached me. He was nearing graduation and had been seeking God’s will for many years but still had no direction. He said to me, “How can I figure out what God wants me to do with my life?” We were standing next to a lamp, and I noticed that it had been unplugged. I pointed to the plug lying on the ground and said to him, “How do you know what that three-pronged contraption is for? Should I stick it in my ear or use it to comb my hair?” He replied, “Of course not. It goes into the electric socket.” My friend, even a child who had never seen a plug or socket before could figure out that they were made for each other.
This is one way you can know what God wants from you. Where do you fit? What do you enjoy? What brings you delight and satisfaction? I have seen that the most effective people in any ministry, occupation, or just life in general are not the ones forcing themselves to do some dreadful task because they feel it is God’s will. Rather it is the ones who are doing something they enjoy so much, they feel guilty taking a salary for it.
My friend, when you find something in life that challenges and thrills you and makes you want to jump out of bed in the morning. Chances are, you’re getting close to discovering God’s will for your life.
