Listen as we discuss how to discover God's plan & know what He wants you to do when making decisions - whether they be big or small.
Key takeaways about knowing God's plan in decision-making
“no special guidance will ever be given about a point on which the Scriptures are clear, nor could any guidance ever contradict the Scriptures”
- Providential circumstances
“It is never a sign of divine leading when the Christian insists on opening his own way, riding roughly over all opposing things. If the Lord “goes before” us, He will open the door for us. We will not need to batter down doors for ourselves.”
- Our convictions / higher judgment
“When we study and meditate on God’s Word, His laws are written on our hearts. Thus our judgment and common sense will be based on Biblical concepts.”
- Inner impressions of the Holy Spirit
“We must never forget that ‘Impressions’ can come from other sources as well as from the Holy Spirit.”
These tests come from the book A Christian's Secret of a Happy Life by Hannah Whitall Smith. We've reworked this classic, life-changing work into the Teach Uplifted Devotions for Teachers, which you can find out more about here.
