Charles Stanley - The Rocky Road to the Will of God
We often focus our efforts on trying to discover the will of God–rightfully so! But after His intentions for us are revealed, there’s a crucial remaining step: our decision to obey and follow Him fully.
To successfully navigate God’s will, we need to recognize the obstacles that could trip us up. In this message, Dr. Stanley examines some of the things we allow (and even invite) to interfere with our progress on the path God has for us. The effects of pride and sin, ignorance and doubt, mistakes or deferred decisions, even our busyness will hinder what we accomplish and become for God in this life. The road may be rocky at times, but we should not let obstacles stop us from living according to God’s perfect plan. Never settle for less than His best!
Unbelievers scoff at the idea of God’s will, and believers often ignore it. However, it’s a reality that affects our lives every day. Either we are living in the will of God or outside it. Usually when we think about His will, our focus is on trying to discover it, but a more important issue is whether we decide to obey His revealed will or not. The road may be rocky at times, but we should not let the obstacles stop us from living according to God’s plan.
