No More Smoke Screens and Fog Machines!

Ephesians 5:15-17

Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people), 
Making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil. 
Therefore do not be vague and thoughtless and foolish, but understanding and firmly grasping what the will of the Lord is.

How can we as Christian live accurately? The word accurate implies being precise, exact, true, perfect and correct. To some these words may seem overwhelming. Thoughts may arise in their minds, “But I’m not perfect, nobody is. How can God expect this of me?”
Rest assured, God will never ask you to do something that He has not already equipped you to do. God is a just God. God is never unfair. He will never burden His children with impossible task or unattainable life goals and unreachable destinies. Everything God requires of you is fully attainable because of who and what He has placed in you. God has given us His Word (the Bible) and His Spirit (the Holy Ghost) so that we can live purposefully, accurately and worthily. The Holy Spirit lives on the inside of every believer to guide and lead us through the course in this life that God has individually chosen for us. He will never leave or forsake us.

John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 

That word Comforter means helper. The Holy Spirit is with you to help you live accurately. If you will cooperate with Him, He will always lead you into the perfect will of God and help you fulfill exactly what the Father’s will is for your life.

The above scripture warns us not to live vague. That word vague speaks of being hazy, unclear and blurred. Have you ever tried walking around town with blurred or impaired vision? It's very easy to stumble and fall when you can't see properly. The scriptures declare that your future is bright not hazy. God has given us spiritual insight and revelation so that we can see beyond the flesh, the world and the devils smoke screens and fog machines.

Through the prophet Habakkuk God reveals to us how we can know the will of God. Listen.

[OH, I know, I have been rash to talk out plainly this way to God!] I will [in my thinking] stand upon my post of observation and station myself on the tower or fortress, and will watch to see what He will say within me and what answer I will make [as His mouthpiece] to the perplexities of my complaint against Him. And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by. For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day.

Habakkuk had purposed to position himself to hear what God had to say to him. God did not disappoint or become angry with Habakkuk because he wanted answers concerning his future. God wants to show every believer great and mighty things (Jeremiah 33:1-3) but we must be still and position ourselves to hear. Once we have gotten instruction from God we can then go forward to live a life accurately, worthily and purposefully before Him. Don’t wander through life with unanswered questions concerning your destiny take the time to get the right answers from the one who knows, God!
