What's Next?

That's a good question.  Have you ever thought about it?

When Abraham asked God, "What's next?" God told him to move.
When Noah asked God, "What's next?" God told him to build an ark.
When Moses asked God, "What's next?' God told him to lead the nation of Israel out of slavery.

Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

First of all, the question, "What's Next?" is a spiritual question.  Paul said, Do not be conformed to this world...  The answer to your question isn't from worldly wisdom, but Godly wisdom. 

Secondly, Paul says, be transformed by the renewal of your mind,...  Allowing the Holy Spirit, through the Word of God, to give you a Godly worldview helps you to make wise decisions about your future. 

Thirdly, ... that by testing you may discern what is the will of God ... Paul wants you to think this through.  Do not shoot from the hip.  If you have the desire to follow Jesus and understand His ways your heart and His will can be in sync.  

Fourthly, ...what is good and acceptable and perfect.  Good - the good that encourages worship and honor unto God.  Acceptable - that which God will be pleased with.  Perfect - That which is complete.

PRAY Dear Jesus, show me what's next in my life. AMEN
