QUOTES ON THE SUBJECT:

“God Guides us first through his Word, then through our heartfelt desires, then the wise counsel of others, and then our circumstances. At that point we must rely on our own sound judgment…God gave each of us a brain, and he expects us to put it to good use.” Bruce Waltke in “Finding the Will of God? A Pagan Notion?”

“So go marry someone, provided you’re equally yoked and you actually like being with each other. Go get a job, provided it’s not wicked. Go live somewhere in something with somebody or nobody. But put aside the passivity and the quest for complete fulfillment and the perfectionism and the preoccupation with the future, and for God’s sake start making some decisions in your life. Don’t wait for the liver-shiver. If you are seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, you will be in God’s will, so just go out and do something.” Kevin DeYoung in “Just Do Something”

That is a great question Justyna. In which case I would say to pray and weigh out the pros and cons of the decision, then give each pro and con a score in terms of importance. If you still don’t know and your heart is truly to glorify God then I am certain He will show you!! :) Sorry, no fortune tellers here.

Wow, very good and helpful video! Thank You Jacob! Still, I think I should read more, because what to do if two choices seem to be equally worthy in terms of glorifying God. What if you really can not decide whats God’s best will? :)
