Missing the Will Of God

One of the great fears of many Christians is missing the will of God. This is not as easy as is frequently taught. Jonah tried very hard and very deliberately to miss the will of God. He failed. We are told that God is at work in our life to bring about His purposes (Ephesians 2:10; 1:11; Romans 8:28). I am not advocating determined disobedience, though God can even bring that around. But I am questioning whether by some slight misstep or small inadvertence we can find ourselves out of the will of God. God is not so easily thwarted as that.  


  1. The older I have gotten the more I believe that the will of God is about being conformed to the image of his Son.
