It’s easy to go about our day feeling as though we’re just doing more of the same old same old. For you, it might mean going to work every day and providing for your family. It might mean raising your children right and serving them with all your love. It means endurance, patience, and longsuffering through the challenges. What we often fail to see is that while we’re faithfully doing the daily works that are already there for us to do, we are doing the will of God for our lives. Too often we think that doing God’s will means some big assignment, something really special, when God has already laid out our assignments in a way that we tend to overlook.

The apostle Paul says, β€œFor we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them” – Ephesians 2 verse 10. That tells me that God has already prepared a way for us to walk in His will. And how do we walk in it? By our good works. Paul is saying that when you gave your heart to Jesus, you received the spiritual DNA of Almighty God and became His new creation. That means you are predisposed, or newly created in Jesus, for good works. So when you think, β€œI want to know God’s assignment for me”, that’s God drawing you to do the good works He has already prepared for you to doβ€”that is His will.

Think about the simple things that you will do today and consider the possible effects. When you overlook an offense, that’s a simple thing, but do you realize the effects it may have? What happens when you extend forgiveness to a loved one rather than hold a grudge? When you go to work with a good attitude even though your workplace is a difficult one, do you know the difference it will make in your children’s lives, your coworkers’ lives, or in your own life today? Might it have an extended effect for a year or perhaps even a lifetime?

The enemy doesn’t want you to see your good works as fulfilling the will of God. He doesn’t want you to see every good work as also working in you, changing you, and leading you to fulfill your destiny. We need to see these β€œgood works” not just as our duties but see them for what they are – they are β€œgood”, they are pleasing and honorable in God’s sight, they bring Him joy, and they are shaping our lives by His handiwork. When you do the right thing today, you’ll have an effect that reaches further than you ever dreamed or imagined, and it could be for eternity!

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
