In addition to having the correct motives, we also need to grow the desire to do God's will.
Most of us begin obeying God out of fear (Deuteronomy 10:12). We fear what God would do to us if we disobey, just like we obey figures in authority because we fear punishment. In other words, we obey because we want to avoid pain.
As we learn to obey God, however, we start to realise that He can be trusted - that He will not punish us unnecessarily. We start to see that He always keeps His promises, and that He will reward us with a sense of peace when we obey Him - He shows us when we are on the right track. This growing trust in God, His character, and His ways - rather than fear - then becomes the primary motive for doing His will (Psalm 9:10; 22:4-5).
Next, we discover that when we obey God, we feel a deep joy and sense of satisfaction; we find ourselves obeying God because it is such a joyful thing to do (Psalm 5:11; 19:8).
This joy will grow into love for Him, which ultimately becomes our primary motive for doing God's will (1 John 5:3; 2 John 1:6). This goes to the heart of our relationship with God. By this point, we will do God's will even if it brings pain or fails to bring pleasure, simply because we love Him. Our love for Him keeps us on the straight and narrow road, in the valley of the shadow of death, and on the way of the cross as we follow the One who said to the Father, "Not my will, but yours be done" (Luke 22:42).
When we love God with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind (Luke 10:27), we will come to cherish Jesus like a hidden treasure or a pearl of great value - something that we are willing to give up everything for (Matthew 13:44-46). And as we learn to value Jesus, our obedience to God will grow ever more complete.

What is your motive at this point?
My desire to do God's will is partly due to fear what God would do to me if I disobey, especially when Jesus might say "I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!" (Matthew 7:21-23). I am worried of going to the burning hell. Instead I want to have joy and real rest for eternity in heaven with God. I believe we all need His protection, correction, guidance, care, provision and love.


Despite the fear, I am in the opinion that God has protected and provided what we need, especially every morning when we went for our predawn walk along the Park Connector Networks (PCN). The weather are mostly fine and the trees are not falling. We are still safe from wild dogs, snakes, monitor lizards and security mishaps. We are still safe despite the blinding, blinking flash lights of racing e-scooters and bicycles. We have started to realise that He can be trusted; to keep us safe and providing our needs.

He even provide many uncles to converse, share their experiences, and walk with us. This is something which we never realise can occur before, when we were in the employment workforce. We had thought that being isolated would be the foregone conclusion.

I have experienced joy and sense of satisfaction when my partially defective table clock suddenly started to function normally again. I have given up hope of it being able to display its original movements again. That clock was with me for the past 28 years and is still working accurately. It has better health than mine own.

However, my poor health is now in stable state although with room for improvements. I am given the opportunity to exercise and practice healthy living lifestyle. Although my eyesight is failing I can still see and my lifestyle is not seriously affected. My financial status is the same but I do have better peace of mind because God is providing all along. I still experience irregular heartbeats which make me feel tired easily. But after some morning walking it can go away temporary.
I have challenges in my health, finance and relationship, but I also experience joy, peace and satisfaction whenever I managed to complete a reflection blog, among other success.

I am growing in my trust in God, His character, and His ways - rather than fear - as the primary motive for doing His will.
I believe, with God's help, there will come a day when my accumulated joys and happiness grow into total love for Him, which ultimately becomes my primary motive for doing God's will.

Which areas in your life do you find it easier to obey God, and where is it hardest?
Areas in my life that I find easier to obey God
Study God's Word
Let go earthly achievements, especially stop pursuing a successful employment position
Stay single instead of being married and having babies
Going to God for help

Areas in my life that I find hardest to obey God

Attend church and contribute tithes.
Be merciful to others just as God is merciful to me [2]
Livelihood without regular salaried income
Accept harsh rejection in relationship although I have rejected others too
Flee from the harmful attractions of the world especially through the Internet

We need to Nurture the Desire [1]
In addition to having the correct motives, we also need to grow the desire to do God's will. This desire to be obedient to God is not a static experience; philosopher and writer Dallas Willard observes in Renovation of the Heart that doing God's will is a process, and can grow in depth and quality. We learn to surrender our will to God's, then to abandon every part of our lives to God, whereupon we will discover contentment with God's will, and finally we will actively participate in God's will. [23] This is essentially a process of discovering ever deeper motives for obeying God.

In Meditations of a Hermit, Christian martyr and writer Charles de Foucauld writes of what it means to love Jesus deeply: "The hour in our life in which we are best employed is the hour in which we best love Jesus. I must remember only Jesus, think only of Jesus, estimating as a gain any loss the price of which I have more  room in myself or thought and knowledge of Jesus, beside whom everything else is nothing. I must reserve all my strength for Jesus." [25]

When we love God with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind (
Luke 10:27), we will come to cherish Jesus like a hidden treasure or a pearl of great value - something that we are willing to give up everything for (Matthew 13:44-46). And as we learn to value Jesus, our obedience to God will grow ever more complete.

Despite the fear, I am in the opinion that God has protected and provided what we need, especially every morning when we went for our predawn walk along the Park Connector Networks (PCN). The weather are mostly fine and the trees are not falling. We are still safe from wild dogs, snakes, monitor lizards and security mishaps. We are still safe despite the blinding, blinking flash lights of racing e-scooters and bicycles. We have started to realise that He can be trusted; to keep us safe and providing our needs.


He even provide many uncles to converse, share their experiences, and walk with us. This is something which we never realise can occur before, when we were in the employment workforce. We had thought that being isolated would be the foregone conclusion.

Dear Lord, Please help us to grow in the desire to do your will. We want our desire to do your will not because of out of fear as the primary motive.

Please help us to show mercy to others too. We realise that we are all sinners in the same boat and need to rely on you for mercy because of our own guilt. We need your loving kindness and tender mercies to blot out our transgressions. We ask for your help to be more like you by displaying mercy to others. Also Jesus our merciful Savior has stated that if we want to be shown mercy, then we too should show mercy to others.<br>Through Lord Jesus Christ we pray. Amen!

Celebrate the royal wedding with a day at the beach.

The royal wedding is just days away and you will want to stock up on all of the souvenirs while you still can.

While commemorative plates with Ed Sheeran's face and royal wedding condoms might be strange, these Prince Harry and Meghan Markle swimsuits from Bags of Love might be the weirdest souvenir yet.



Design your own swimsuit and rock your individual style at the pool or beach.

Soft, stretchy and supportive!

Printed with cheeky slogans, they can double up as leotards to wear under a skirt or shorts for the evening shenanigans (silly or high-spirited behaviour; mischief).

Harry is keen on breaking protocol and doing things on his own terms, so whatever we previously thought about a beard and a uniform, let's reconsider for the rebellious royal.

Public relations manager Ekaterina Vankova explained that the royal frenzy has people printing the future bride and groom on bathing suits and "rocking it proudly on the beach." Prince Harry's beard is also cheekily placed on a "sartorial placement," which supports the movement of "accepting the body" and "who you are."

Those interested can purchase these swimsuits for US$38 each.
