INTRODUCTION: Apparently, people have always needed to know what God wants from them. It’s true that He has revealed what He wants … and expects. But people have attempted life on their own terms, and what God wants of them gets “lost” in the darkness of human wisdom and striving. Then comes another reminder (sometimes in a deafening or dreadful way) of what God wants of us. My purpose this morning is simple: I want to think about this matter of what God wants from us.
I. HE WANTS OUR ATTENTION.
A. People forget God!
The ego is that part in us which feeds off praise, compliments and success. When we live in the ego we are inevitably subject to feelings of superiority / inferiority, pride and worthlessness, success and failure. If we want to avoid these negative emotions we need to transcend the ego. If we can transcend the ego, we will find that people are instinctively more attracted to us, even though we are no longer trying to impress. It may seem a great paradox, yet, limiting the role of our ego can make a radical difference to our lives.

You may not know me,
but I know everything about you.
I know when you sit down and when you rise up.
I am familiar with all your ways.
Even the very hairs on your head are numbered.
For you were made in my image.
In me you live and move and have your being.
For you are my offspring.
I knew you even before you were conceived.
I chose you when I planned creation.
One of the greatest benefits afforded to every Christian is the privilege of answered prayers. In the Bible, Jesus made this tremendous promise, “And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive” (Matt 21:22). However, despite the Lord’s willingness to answer prayer, it is obvious that some prayers have gone unanswered. Why is this? The following are the most common reasons why some prayers do not get results:
1. Lack of Fellowship with God and His word
John 15:7 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.”
Do you know what your future will be like?
You can know your future by just listening to what you are saying today. With your words you are prophesying your future. Your words have creative power, power to create your future. What you are experiencing today is the result of what you have said in the past. And what you say today will be what you will experience in your future.
People who are always talking sickness will see more sickness in their bodies. People who are always talking defeat and failure will experience more of the same in their future.
