• Defining the Will of God Devotional

    Deuteronomy 29:29

    The right way to pursue the will of God for our lives is to ask, what is pleasing to Him? The Lord does not expect us to live according to what He has not revealed but to seek to please Him where we are now and in the many future possibilities that we contemplate. We will never be outside of God’s decretive will, but it is possible to live in such a way that breaks His revealed will. And to break His revealed will is sin. View Resource

  • Finding a Job That Fits Devotional

    Deuteronomy 29:29

    Do you find yourself in a job that is less than ideal but which you are unable to leave? Ask the Lord to give you joy in your work and look for someone who can help you find the good aspects of your present situation. If God has put you in authority over other people, look for ways that you can help those whom you supervise enjoy their jobs and see the importance of their work. Whatever your current area of work, serve your employers — and thus God — faithfully. View Resource

  • God’s Will, Hidden and Revealed Devotional

    Deuteronomy 29:29

    Though we should be appropriately concerned about making the right decisions and the potential consequences of all of our choices, it is pointless for us to worry excessively about where we will be in the future. We cannot know God’s hidden will that has decreed the future, so fretting about it is a waste of time. We simply need to consider what we know is pleasing to the Lord. If we please Him today, we have done all that He requires of us. View Resource

  • A Marriage Myth Devotional

    Deuteronomy 29:29

    Single Christians must be careful not to think there is only one person out there who would make a perfect spouse for them. If you are single and want to get married, do not rule out someone with whom you are personally compatible just because he or she is not the perfect physical or financial specimen. If you are married, remember your marriage vows today and commit yourself again, with God’s help, that you will not break them. View Resource

  • The Will of God Devotional

    Deuteronomy 29:29

    The distinction between God’s hidden will and His revealed will gives us a great deal of freedom. We do not have to worry about His hidden will, because we cannot know it anyway. But as long as we seek to obey His revealed will, we may freely do whatever is in accordance with this will. If, for example, we are presented with two choices for work and both of them do not entail sin, we can choose whichever job we like better without worrying that we are displeasing the Lord.
