As you aim to set your course this year, it is very important that you be in the right place and position. This is critical if you expect to get maximum results out of this year. So often we can allow ourselves to be busy but yet not doing the right things. Both of us, can name at least five people we know who are always busy but yet not have a fruitful life.
“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners,…” Psalm 1:1 (KJV). Here we see that standing in the way of sinners does not result in you being a blessed person. When you do things like this, you actually stop them from knowing God.
People who normally stand in the way can be known as blockers, dream killers, progress stoppers, haters, resistors of change. These people have been responsible for holding up peoples promotion, unanswered prayers, killed opportunities, delayed change.
So if this is true, as with people we can also stand in the way of God. Bear in mind this is a more dangerous place to be in. You put yourself in jeopardy of being hurt, damaged and even destroyed. We are talking here about the one who has orchestrated all things and responsible for your very existence. So to stand in his way means you oppose what He desires to do.
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2 (KJV). Think about this, God’s will is good, perfect, beneficial, fruitful. How is it that you can see yourself being able to successfully stand against that? My question is why would you want to stand against something that is not only beneficial for you but all mankind? If you ever have a thought or slight suggestion of that kind let me tell you that there is evil behind that. So I suggest you jump off that ride before it wrecks.
I want you to have a more fruitful and productive year so I think it would be best to team up with someone of great importance. The effort and activity you give will be most rewarded when you join up with God and his will.
Above all, God has a purpose and plan for your life. It only makes sense for you to partner with Him. This is why I want to hammer home to you to get in His will for 2013 and His will for your life. Also be reminded that God’s will is found in his word. What you desire to know and find answers to can be found in His word. There is no need for you to be ignorant to finding out God’s will.
Your life will only be easier when you partner up with God. If God is indestructible why would you try to box against him? Let me make this easier for you. Many others have tried and failed, so no need for you to add yourself to statistics. Don’t you want to make it into the Hall of Fame for those who helped to create history for building up the Kingdom of God?
Here are 7 quick things to help you know and get in God’s will this year.
God’s will is that you:-
1. Be in Christ
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)
2. Delight to do
“I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.” Psalm 40:8 (KJV)
“ Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.” Ephesians 5:17 (KJV)
4. Have patience after doing
“For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.” Hebrews 10:36 (KJV)
5. Be made perfect to do
“20 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, 21 Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.” – Hebrews 13:20-21 (KJV)
6. Be transformed to prove
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2 (KJV)
7. Don’t perish
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9 (KJV)
Do you find yourself more in God’s will or His way?

Are you ready to face eternity? If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour of your life and desire to make that commitment now please repeat the following prayer:
Lord Jesus be merciful to me a sinner. I realize that I have sinned against you and come short of your glory. I confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and I believe in my heart that God has raised him from the dead. I pray for your forgiveness and ask that you save me now and accept me into your kingdom. Give me eternal life today.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
