Product Description

God Does Not have a Wonderful Plan for Your Life

In today・s world most people are in fairly continuous vocational transition. Vocational decision-making is then not a once-for-all event but a lifetime process. In such a mobile society the heart of vocational living is a continuous process of discerning God・s purpose.

But for some Christians, concern :to be in the center of God・s will; leads to guidance anxiety. A plan, like a blueprint, is something that we must follow in slavish detail. But God does not have a wonderful plan for our life. He has something far better V a wonderful purpose! A purpose is like a fast-flowing stream that carries a boat along, within which life is full of decisions, adjustments, redirections, mistakes and even second chances.

And God・s purpose is not hard to find. Guidance is essentially a pagan concept. What Scripture offers is far better than guidance; it offers the Guide. The Bible is more concerned with our relationship to the Guide than our being in :the center of His will,; a concept not actually found in the Bible. Lacking signs and supernatural direction, Christians can still confidently move forward in their lives for good reason V if they are prepared to engage in a lifetime journey of discerning God・s calling.
