Determining God's Will

“Love God and do as you please.”  -St. Augustine

Often times we ask God to tell us specifically what His will is in making a decision.  “Is this the right person that I am supposed to marry?”  God is more concerned with how you decide to live when you do get married than whom you marry.  (This isn’t to say that God doesn’t care about who you marry.  Obviously you don’t want to marry someone who will lead you away from God.)  The point is you must be the right person, the righteous bride of Christ.  As Pastor Steven Furtick says, “If you embody God’s ways then you will be in His will.” 

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him (1 Colossians 3:17, NIV).
