Synopsis

How do I know God's will for my life?

We face decisions every day--some big, some small. As Christians, we want to submit the choices we make to God's will. Unfortunately, for many people the process of discerning God's will has become fraught with fear and confusion, leading to such questions as: Does God really guide us? If so, how? How will I know when he does? What if I make a mistake?

In this biblical and practical exploration of divine guidance, you'll find solid foundations for understanding how and why God guides his people. Discover the role of Scripture, discernment, wisdom, the counsel of others, and the Holy Spirit in helping you discover God's will.

A helpful study guide for individual or group use is included.
