Choice! And?

Doing God’s will is a choice. That is made clear by Jesus’ statement, “If anyone chooses to do God’s will, he will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own” John 7:17

Biblical decision making begins with a willingness to submit our intentions to God’s perfect will and humbly follow His direction. The problem is most of us don’t know how to figure out God’s will in every decision we face—especially the big, life-altering decisions.
