Why does it seem that Christians are more concerned about finding God’s plan for their lives instead of trying to find out how their lives fit in God’s plan?
- Christ, his teachings, and his apostle’s teachings ought to be central.
- When my focus is “God’s will for my life,” it is putting me before God. We request God to follow our will by demanding an answer from him, rather than us doing his commands and answering to his ways.
- By Scripture study, one learns God’s ways. Biblical teaching and wisdom are God’s gifts for decision making.
Sheer study and knowledge of God’s Word gives us his plan. Wisdom and his moral directives are central concepts to his plan to help guide our lives.
