What Does God Want to Do in Your Life?


Figuring out what God wants to do in our lives is one of those questions we struggle with because we tend to think that what we want just naturally is what God wants. More often than not, what we want is a problem-free, pleasant life, while God is looking for a life of godly growth and productivity. We measure success by visible results which tangibly influence our day to day lives in a positive way. God sees success in wise choices, patient trust and persevering obedience.

A man by the name of Nicodemus came to Jesus one evening with the question, “What does God want to do in my life?” The answer Jesus gave him was at first confusing because being like the rest of us Nicodemus didn’t initially appreciate what Jesus was offering. We know that later in his life he did because he became one of Jesus’ disciples. But at that first meeting, Jesus turned Nicodemus’ view of God’s working in his life upside down.

How about you? Are you ready to let God do what he needs to do in your life? Have you come to the point where you are prepared to accept that it is not only okay, but probably good, that God has a very different view of what needs to be done in your life?

Jesus’ conversation with Nicodemus produced some of the most life transforming statements human language has ever recorded. Join us for one of our weekend services. Open yourself up to what God wants to do in your life.
