This book will help correct the problem. Sittser, Professor of Theology, Whitworth University.
The church desperately needs a rescue from this confusion. Pastor and author Kevin DeYoung counsels Christians to settle down, make choices, and do the hard work of seeing those choices through. Or—even worse—they do absolutely nothing, stuck in a frustrated state of paralyzed indecision, waiting…waiting…waiting for clear, direct, unmistakable direction.

Please try again later. My pastor recommended this book, and it is one of the best Christian books I've read. I finally feel unstuck, like I can move forward without second-guessing whether all of my decisions are God's will. I also liked how the author sought out wisdom from his grandparents, as to how their generation viewed this topic.
I think we over-complicate things in our modern age. Lastly, the author's writing style is delightful, with humor interjected, and easy to understand.
The book is 10 chapters, and pages- the perfect length. If you are seeking God's will and are discouraged or frustrated that you haven't received a clear-cut answer, I highly recommend this book. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Well written and straight to the point. I thought it especially interesting to see how he correlated 'finding God's Will' to cowardice. He is a good God who gives us brains, shows us the way of obedience, and invites us to take risks for Him. Just why I haven't been able to find this book before? None of my Christian friends or local church members had this kind of approach when I was struggling with my life's important decisions.
Instead of advising me to seek God's wisdoms, most of them were so assured to say that I needed to pray more and all that. No personal responsibility, accountability, and initiative, as the book says.

Of course, as Christianity is all about Jesus Christ and His works for us, this liberating approach isn't about "be whatever you want" type. As for me, I think there is a right balance between seeking His kingdom and making decisions freely while trusting God. If I had read this book in college, I could have made much wiser decisions.

But - if you can believe it - the book is even better! There are two unique things about my reading this book: Richardson, for such a great birthday present! Kevin DeYoung wants to demystify and de-hocus-pocus all of the "will of God" talk that is part and parcel of the evangelical landscape.
Is it God's will for me to take this job Rather, He is arguing that God is not a sadistic trickster who craftily hides His will in such a way that His people literally have to go crazy trying to put the puzzle pieces in the right place. DeYoung does a few brilliant things in this book. First of all, he wonders aloud why it is that there is such a fevered pitch to know God's will about matters like vocation and marriage, but so little passion to obey God's clear will about loving Jesus and being conformed to His character?
Do more than care: Do more than believe: Do more than be fair: Do more than forgive: Do more than dream: Just do it or stop thinking.
