A Liberating Approach to Finding God’s Will
Hyper-Spiritual approaches to finding God’s will don’t work. It’s time to try something new: GIVE UP .
Pastor and author Kevin DeYoung counsels Christians to settle down, make choices, and do the hard work of seeing those choices through.
Too often, he writes, God’s people tinker around with churches, jobs, and relationships, worrying that they haven’t found God’s perfect will for their lives. Or – even worse – they do absolutely nothing, stuck in a frustrated state of paralyzed indecision, waiting…waiting…waiting for clear, direct, unmistakable direction.
But God doesn’t need to tell us what to do at each fork in the road. He’s already revealed His plan for our lives: to love Him with our whole hearts, to obey His Word, and after that, to do what we like.
No need for hocus-pocus. No reason to be directionally challenged. Just do something.
“The truth is that God is more committed to showing you His will than you are to discovering it. This book shows that discovering God’s will happens not as we ‘let go and let God’, but as we trust God and get going.” – Tullian Tchividjian, Pastor, New City Church
“DeYoung explains so well what Oswald Chambers wrote a century ago, ‘Trust God and do the next thing’. Sadly, our wrongheaded search for the elusive ‘will of God’ often prevents us from doing both. This book will help correct that problem.” – Gerald L. Sittser, Professor of Theology, Whitworth University
