What if you and I have been so focused on searching for God’s specific calling for our lives that we’ve missed God’s will? What if we’ve been looking so intently for writing in the sky that we’ve missed the written answer in our hands? Did you know that there are multiple passages of Scripture that begin with the phrase, “this is God’s will for you?”

I’m serious! I didn’t know this for a long time. And I found those passages only because I got so desperate to discover God’s will that I Googled it!

1 Thessalonians 4:3 reads, “For this is the will of God, your sanctification.” Later in that same book, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, we read, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” And 1 Peter 2:15 says, “For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people.”

What?! I had been searching for the will of God for I don’t know how long—and the entire time it was right here in the Bible! It makes me wonder what else we’ve missed, and what other callings might exist.
