It doesn’t matter how much we intellectualize the path which we choose, any path outside of God’s will is less than His best for us. In order to live in God’s BEST for me, the great question I should ask myself EVERY day is: What is God’s will for me today? However, I will NEVER know God’s will if I do not KNOW God! We know God when we pursue Him with passion. Why, exactly would we NOT pursue God with passion??? What prevents us from pursuing One Who loves us more than we’ve ever been loved by anyone—including ourselves? What prevents us from passionately seeking to befriend the most brilliant and powerful One we can EVER know?? What prevents us from pursuing the Giver of ALL of our talent, time and resources??? For me it was not only my heart’s ignorance of God but also my mind’s deception based upon the world’s rationalization and intellectualization as it strives to make the things of God appear as foolish and unattractive. So I chose to reject God’s way in favor of my own way because I went with what I knew instead of opening my mind and heart to what God could teach me. My life was wrecked shambles directly attributable to my profound ignorance of God’s love and wisdom. You see, God offers us the wisdom of His presence—but only on His terms. Only when we come to terms with Him, will we ever be wise enough to follow His ways. His Word says: “For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God.” (1 Cor. ‭1:25-29)‬ ‭God has a divine plan for each of us. The question for each day should be: “Are we wise enough to passionately pursue Him—and thus, find and follow His plan?”‬‬
