6 Attitudes for Fulfilling God’s Will
Adapted from “How to Fulfill God’s Will” by Andrew Wommack
When I was a kid, I would mow our yard back and forth in long straight rows so you could see a pattern in the grass.
The way I did it was by picking an object in front of me and mowing straight for it. If I tried to do it by looking down at the grass in front of the mower, it would be crooked every single time.
- If you’re going to win and fulfill God’s will, you have to look unto Jesus and stay focused on Him. Nothing external can defeat you. I know that’s a statement many people wouldn’t agree with. Really, what defeats you is how you think.
- You have to control your thinking! That’s where it starts. The reason you have to look unto Jesus is because it’s in your mind that you faint. If you’ve started to follow God’s will but now you’ve come up against something that looks impossible, it’s all in the way you think that will determine whether you experience victory or whether you quit.
- Nothing can destroy you unless you get weary and faint in your mind! You’ve got to get to where you look to Jesus and consider Him more than what you see in the mirror, more than what you feel in your body, more than what other people have to say to you—more than anything!
- You have to get to where God’s Word impacts you more than anybody else’s word! People pleasing just won’t get you there. God’s Word will!
- You have to keep yourself encouraged. You will not fulfill God’s will with a defeated attitude. You’re going to have to resist discouragement. You have to overcome obstacles that have been put in your path. I’m telling you, it takes effort.
- To endure over the long haul, you’re going to have to toughen up. You’re going to have to get to where you don’t let things bother you. God has called you to win! God has called you to be an overcomer! You can overcome anything that the devil forms against you!
I tell you, if you are going to fulfill God’s will, you’re going to have to adopt these attitudes. You need to realize that “better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof” (Eccl. 7:8).
It’s wonderful to find God’s will and move in that direction, but really, it’s only after you finish your course with joy that you realize all the benefits!
