In yesterday morning’s sermon, I alluded to some ideas about how we view the will of God and what ramifications this has for our life.
Too many people narrowly define the will of God in terms of this or that decision they are facing. I think God, in His Word, is wanting us to see His will as something larger (i.e. sanctification in 1 Thessalonians 4:3, believing in Jesus as Savior in John 6:40). When we narrowly define God’s will in terms of who we will marry, which job to choose, or other decisions like this, we run the risk of missing out what God’s will actually is for us.
For more info, I would also recommend Kevin DeYoung’s excellent work, Just Do Something.
