Guidance & God’s Will
"The will of God means death to our own will, and resurrection only when we have died to all our own plans." - Sinclair Ferguson
God Guides us first through his Word, then through our heartfelt desires, then the wise counsel of others, and then our circumstances. At that point we must rely on our own sound judgment...God gave each of us a brain, and he expects us to put it to good use.
- Bruce Waltke from Finding the Will of God
What is God's remedy for dejection at apparent failure in our labours? This—the assurance that God's purpose cannot fail, that God's plans cannot miscarry, that God's will must be done. Our labours are not intended to bring about that which God has not decreed. - Arthur W. Pink
And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever. - 1 John 2:17
