God's Elusive Will?

Among other things, this Sunday's message on Proverbs 8 will find us exploring the question of how we can discover God's will. Are we supposed to pray for constant direction in decision-making? How much weight should we give 'impressions' we feel from the Lord? Questions like these have produced a lot of anxiety for Christians over the years - including yours truly.

To give you an indication of where we'll be going, consider the following quote from Kevin DeYoung:

God is not a Magic 8-Ball we shake up and peer into whenever we have a decision to make. He is a good God who gives us brains, shows us the way of obedience, and invites us to take risks for Him.

- Kevin DeYoung, Just Do Something, p. 26
