Finding Our Way Through the Maze

Finding God's will for your life is complicated. Often, things do not come together as we originally thought they would. There are times when we do not know where we are going and what to do next. There are times when we need to make hard decisions. At these times, it is a comfort to know that God is in control of the world and in control of our lives (Ephesians 1:11; Romans 8:28; Isaiah 43:13). We see God at work in the story of Jonah, who deliberately disobeyed God, but God brought Him back to the right track. We see Paul, wandering around Asia Minor until God finally showed him where He wanted him to go (Acts 16:6-10). I am convinced that if we are willing or even, like Jonah, can be made willing, God will lead us to where He wants us to be. But people have been given the idea that there is one clear will of God for their lives and they must be diligent not to miss it. And if they miss it, they are relegated to second best for the rest of their lives. But I am convinced that, apart for blatant, continual refusal to deal with clear sin in our lives, God will lead us to where He wants us to be. And we can trust Him for that (Proverbs 3:5,6; Psalms 37:3-6; 127:1,2).
