We often say we want God’s plan for our life. God’s best for us. God’s purpose for us. God’s blessing for us.
But when it comes to actually discerning His will, things can feel a little blurry.
We easily can fall into the trap of overthinking God’s plan. Feeling confidence one day about a new direction, then complete confusion the next. Asking countless questions without finding peace in answers. Being so hard on ourselves that we think we’re not good enough for what God has for us.
Whether we realize it or not, we may be approaching His will wrongly. Making it an option over a command. Making it a complicated mystery over a practical lifestyle. Making it about fearing irreversible mistakes over embracing growth and truth.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll learn how to understand and follow God’s path for our lives in the Trust Series. This three-part blog series will cover:
- Having the courage to GO when God says, “Yes” (Part One)
- Discerning God’s true gifts when they appear (Part Two)
- Examining our lives to know whether we’re walking in obedience (Part Three)
Today, in Part One, we’re tackling the fear of taking steps of faith. This part is for those with the willing heart. Those who are ready for obedience and who are walking in it, ready for God to move.
