Today. Just Today.

By: Tim Grissom
It may not seem that a man in his sixties should still be in search of God’s will for his life, but I find myself praying about it every day. Well, to be clear, I don’t usually ask God what His will is for my life, I ask Him what His will is for today.

Just today.

It isn’t that I don’t have goals, hopes, or plans that extend beyond today’s end; it’s just that the older I get the more I feel my heart needs a daily reset. So, I ask my Father every day, and sometimes more often than that:

  1. Am I where You want me to be?
  2. Am I doing what You want me to be doing?

I like to think that I ask God these questions not out of doubt, but out of surrender. Not because I’m discontent, but because I want to walk in a manner worthy of His calling (Ephesians 4:1).

The truth is, daily searching for God’s will is really a matter of daily seeking His heart. Perhaps that’s why God leads us by steps and not by lifespans. If He fully revealed His will for our lives, in detail and with no gaps or dark corners, maybe we’d stop going to Him with our questions.

So, if an incomplete picture of the future is a problem for me, it is also a blessing to me; it’s a weakness I can “boast” in (2 Corinthians 12:9) because it keeps me seeking God’s heart. Every day.
