This Sunday: Inside the Mind of God

Last Sunday we talked about how relying too heavily on our own intuition can be a dangerous thing -- even if it appears to draw its direction from Scripture. Just because you can find a passage of Scripture to support a view doesn't mean God is leading you in that direction. Using Scripture to affirm God's will on specific issues requires balance and discernment. And learning God's mind may require more than simply discovering a Bible verse.

This Sunday, we'll be challenged on how to approach the Scriptures when discerning God's will on the issues in our life. It should prove to be extremely practical and, hopefully, powerful for the decisions we have to make in the future. Hope to see you there!

So are My ways higher than your ways...
my thoughts than your thoughts."
- Isaiah 55:9

The past few weeks, we've been talking about making decisions or discovering God's will for our lives. We started by framing the discussion with boundaries. The personal will of God we seek is somewhere between His providential will and His moral will. Next, we discussed how God wants us to seek out wise counsel to make decisions. This week we begin the will-discovering process by examining whether we can learn to think more like God. Hope to see you there!

"A wise man will hear and increase in learning,

and a man of understanding will acquire wise counsel."

Proverbs 1:5 (NASB)


"He who walks with wise men will be wise,

but the companion of fools will suffer harm."

Proverbs 13:20 (NASB)


This past Sunday we looked at 1 Kings 12 and the example of where Rehoboam sought advice and how he regarded it. This Sunday, we'll be confronted with some practical advice on how to seek good counsel and what it's relation is to finding out God's will for our lives.
