As Christians it should always be our desire to do the will of God. In doing the will of God for our lives is when we will discover how blessed we truly are. In doing God’s will it may not be the way we would do things, but we are submitting ourselves to the desire of God for our lives, because we want what He wants for our lives. One of the ways that we fulfill God’s will for our lives is by doing good in all situations that we find ourselves in. There will be times that we must do good things for people who have done wrong things to us, and in doing good towards them it shows God’s love working.
The Scripture reminds us that, this is the will of God, that by doing good we should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. I encourage you today to fulfill the will of God by doing good to all those you come in contact with today. Do good to those who have not treated you right, and have not been genuine to you, and when you do, remember that you are putting to silence the ignorance of foolish people. There are times when you will do good for someone and they will act like you were never there for them, this is not the time to stop, but the time to silence ignorance by showing the good of The Lord working in your life.
God has poured blessings into your life, even after you may have done something wrong, but when you know that you are blessed by God, you will show that same love and compassion to others. The best way to silence your critics is to continue to do the will of God in spite of what they have done to you, and watch how blessed you will be. I am grateful for how good God has been to me, and no matter what I will do all I can to show and do good to all I come in contact with, and my good will silence all ignorance.
Since I will always do the will of God for my life I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
Your will Lord is what I want for my life, and I want to show the love you have for me to others. In Jesus Name Amen.
