Just Do Something

I just finished reading a very insightful book about the will of God. It’s called “Just Do Something: A Liberating Approach to Finding God’s Will or How to make a decision without dreams, visions, fleeces, impressions, open doors, random Bible verses, casting lots, liver shivers, writing in the sky, etc.” by Kevin DeYoung.

Quite a title, huh?

For the most part, I was highly encouraged and motivated by what I read. Kevin drives home the thought that in the name of ‘waiting on God’ for His perfect will, we are being inactive and simply don’t know how to make decisions. He says we shouldn’t wait on God’s will of direction, but should simply obey His Word and make decisions for His glory. Focus on what the Bible says you should focus on instead of waiting for something that may never come.

I believe this is true, but I also believe we should ask God to reveal His perfect will as we remain active in what we already know is good.

Check this book out. It will challenge your thinking!
