I guess we all get up in the morning and think about what we are going to do today. There are of course daily task like eating, hygiene, and cleaning that we know we will do everyday but what is the thing that we can do today to be pleasing to the Creator? I think about this often as in my heart I want to serve the Lord. I want to make an impact for the Kingdom of God and I also know that doing the will of God is by far more important than what I might want. I have counseled people who tend however to overthink this and begin to feel inadequate because they feel like they can never do enough to please God.
The simple answer to God's instruction for today is of course found in the Scriptures. I wanted to give you a couple of passages to help you to think about this simple task of God's Instructions for you today.
33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. Matthew 6:33 NLT
1 I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. 2 Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. 3 This is good and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-3 NLT
So the simple answer for God's Instruction for today is to seek Him. Seek the Lord. Talk to the Lord about about everyone in your life. Then go forward into your day with the confidence that God is with you. Let Him put the people and the opportunities in front of you that He directs. Give thanks for every opportunity and every trial you may face today.
Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. Lamentations 3:23 NLT
