7 things God wants for your life

1. God wants you to have a bright future

God doesn’t want you to hold onto the past but rather He wants you to move forward in your future. Your human nature will make you focus on all your shortcomings and mistakes. But God’s will is that you would forget your mess-ups and push forward to what He has in store for your future. Even if your life was a real mess right now that doesn’t really matter. What’s important is not so much how you started but rather how you finish the race. “…forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead” Phil 3:13

2. God wants generations to be positively affected through you

There are purposes that your parents may have missed in their life and God has graciously passed them onto you so that the blessings contained in those purposes would work for you. “The counsel of the Lord stands forever. The plans of His heart to all generations.” Psalm 33:11 There are even gifts that God passes down through generations that can work for you “I call to remembrance the genuine faith that is in you, which dwelt first in your grandmother” 2 Tim 1:5

3. God wants you to know and understand Him

God doesn’t just want you to wonder about Him. He wants you to know and understand Him. “…let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight,” says the LORD.” Jeremiah 9:24 The more you get to know God, the more you will put your trust in Him. You get to know God by seeking Him in prayer and action and putting His word and commands to the test.

4. God wants you to live life to the full

Jesus came so that you could live a life free from shame and regret and walk empowered by His wisdom, principles and God’s Spirit. “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10 It’s almost a really simple equation if not for the deception of Satan. Listen to Jesus and everything will be ok! God wants us to enjoy life. “…who gives us richly all things to enjoy.” 1 Timothy 6:17

5. God wants you to know that He is on your side

When you genuinely go to God for assistance and help He will truly be on your side to help. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 6:14 The Father is a God of love and mercy and would much rather pour His grace on your life rather than get angry. God is a patient, loving, caring and compassionate God. He wants the best for you and is daily trying to get your attention through creation, through people and in circumstances. The heavens declare the glory of God. The skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.” Psalm 19:1-2

6. God wants you to have a future of peace and prosperity

God’s thoughts towards you are that of peace and not of evil. “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 When God gives you instructions and commands for your life it’s not to hurt you but to prosper you. Always ask yourself “This thing I believe God wants from me, what could be the possibilities for the future?”

7. God wants your body and mind to be in good health

Does God want you to be in good health and have a sound mind? You bet He does. He also wants you do prosper in ALL things. That means your endeavours in life and your relationships. That includes your finances and your career. God loves you. “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”3 John 1-2
