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?

Far too many have been paralyzed with indecision because they are looking for a mystical inside track to a new revelation from God.

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.
