Everyone has the gift of faith. Whether you are lost or saved, you exercise belief by what you do. In the third part of his sermon series, Steps to God’s Guidance, Dr. Stanley explains that following God is a conscious effort, because His ways are higher than ours. Though we are prone to subconsciously follow our own desires, we must make a choice to follow His.
The grace of God is demonstrated by the fact that He has a plan and purpose for our lives that He wants to reveal to us. It’s a pathway He’s designed specifically for each one of us, yet some of us may fail to consider this. We move through life without giving God a second thought. Instead of wondering whether our lives have counted for anything, we can choose to believe that the Lord has the best plan for us, discover His path, and get on it as soon as possible.
If we don’t fully trust God, we may be reluctant to follow the path He’s chosen for us.
