Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.Matthew 24:42
So often we think that the coming of the Lord will be a surprise, but it shouldn’t be. We are called to be alert and ready with expectation, even though we do not know the exact time. Our pets have no precise knowledge of our return but often wait for us. They are looking and listening for any sign of our arrival, ready to greet us. There is excitement instead of surprise.~ Pastor Bob Barnett
Free To Be Wiseby Kirk Youngblood
How can I know God’s will for my life? Should I expect God to reveal it to me mystically, or has He already revealed His wisdom in Scripture, which enables me to be wise in my decision making? What faulty methods should I avoid in making decisions, and how can I apply biblical wisdom? Far too many have been paralyzed with indecision because they are looking for a mystical inside track to a new revelation from God. In Free to Be Wise: A Guide to Biblical Decision Making, Kirk Youngblood explains how you can avoid the common pitfalls of using a mystical approach to biblical decision making. You will be liberated to follow the wisdom God has already revealed in His Word. Youngblood has thoroughly researched this topic and explains the mysticism versus wisdom paths to learning God’s will for your life in a clear and easy-to-understand manner.
