This is a Much too Convenient Excuse Used By Many Christians

It is easy to use th phrase “God’s will for my life” as an excuse for inaction or disobedience.  It’s much less demanding to think about God’s will for your future than it is to ask Him what He wants you to do in the next ten minutes.  It’s safer to commit to following Him someday instead of this day.

Just Forget About What is God’s Will for You Life…

I think a lot of us need to forget about “God’s will for my life.”  God cares more about our response to His Spririt’s leading today, in this moment, than about what we intend to do next year.  In fact, the decisions we make next year will be profoundly affected by the degree to which we submit to the Spirit right now, in today’s decisions.
