Many times we encourage one another by saying, “You can do anything you set your mind to do, as long as you have faith.” Yes, it’s true that through God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26), because God can do anything He chooses through anyone He chooses. But some the things that you want to do, even for God, it may not be His will for YOU to do them.
You may have a desire to have a virgin birth, and yes with God it’s possible, but that doesn’t mean it’s His will for you to do it.
David had a desire to build a house for God, but God told Him it was His will for his son Solomon to build it…
1 Chronicles 22:7-8
7 And David said to Solomon: “My son, as for me, it was in my mind to build a house to the name of the Lord my God; 8 but the word of the Lord came to me, saying, ‘You have shed much blood and have made great wars; you shall not build a house for My name, because you have shed much blood on the earth in My sight.
It is our responsibility to find out what God’s will is for us and the things He would have us do…but how do you know?
Ephesians 5:12 tells us to “find out what’s acceptable to the Lord.”
Proverbs 3:4-5 tells us Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
Be sensitive to His Spirit and where He is leading you. In Acts 16 the Holy Spirit forbade the apostles from going some places that desired to go preach.
“6 Now when they had gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia. 7 After they had come to Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia, but the Spiritdid not permit them.”
God has a will and purpose for each of His children, and we must pray for wisdom, understanding, discernment and revelation for God to show us those things He would have us to do.
I pray in the name of Christ that God reveals to you your purpose and your path.
