God’s Will Demystified?? Part of me understands exactly what the author is saying in this book… perhaps the other part of me does much life the way it’s put out there. I will let you decide for yourself.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
“For nearly two thousand years too many Christians have embraced a lie. The lie is cast in spiritual tones and seems, on the surface, to be innocent enough.
Yet, it’s a lie so deceptive that even the most pious believe it without knowing it, and its widespread practice has robbed the world of a thousand types of good that would have been hers had Christianity followed God’s path. It’s a lie so clandestine that it has weaved its way in and out of Christian history nearly undetected.
It’s a lie so sinister that it has robbed millions of people of their souls. What is the lie? It is that “God’s will” is hard to find. It isn’t.”
This is an interesting book. In it the author, Johnnie Moore, states that he is challenging the status quo, the premise that is held dear by Christians around the around the globe that if we just seek Him, God will show us His will for our life. In this book, What Am I Supposed to Do with My Life, the author says that we are not to stand still and wait. When we understand that the will of God has more to do with who you are than where you are or what you do. You don’t find it; you become it.
The author goes on to suggest that we are created by God and we are placed into our circumstances, i.e. family, location, skill set, etc. by God. All of those parts were put in place because they are what are necessary for us to become who we were created to be – God’s will for our life.
In our limited and finite minds, God’s will may not make sense, but God is always at work preparing us. We are born in the family we are born into for a reason, and not one event in our lives is ever waster. Though we may be surprised by the plan God has for us, the talents, personality traits, and experiences necessary for us to play our part in it are formed in us long before we understand why we have them.
