What can I do to live the life God intended?

People often ask me, “What can I do to live the life God intended for me?” And though, I can truthfully say it is really through the grace and mercy of God, I do know there are some things that open your life up to experiencing more of his presence, power, and anointing.  If you really want to live the life God intended and not just talk about it, action is required.

You cannot separate life in Christ from the action of living according to the Word. What you believe is demonstrated through your actions. In fact, true belief always brings corresponding action. If you believe the Word of God is life-giving, life-producing, and powerful then you must do what it says.  You must obey it even if it seems counterintuitive. Unfortunately, many believers are in word only.  They talk a lot, but have little corresponding action.  This is not the Lord’s way. It is not God’s desire that one become puffed up with knowledge. It is his desire that we be transformed in our thinking in order to demonstrate his power through our actions.

If you believe in God and are fully persuaded of His power, pay attention to and obey the Word. Do what it says. Don’t allow anything to keep you from radical obedience.  Radical obedience goes beyond mental assent. The believer who is radically obedient takes the knowledge of the truth and moves to righteous action. The one committed to spiritual growth makes this a daily practice.  Those who share great intimacy with God know that consistency is the key.  If you really want to live the life God intended for you make radical obedience a habit.  The truth of his word gives you the power to do it. You will be amazed at how things will begin to change in your life.

 “For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.” 1 Corinthians 4:20
