Description : How can we discover God's will for the complicated decisions of time, money, relationships, education and career? How do we know which is best among a variety of "good" options? In this updated and substantially expanded edition, M. Blaine Smith shows how God unfolds his plan for our lives -- through the Bible, prayer, reason, abilities, circumstances, desire and the counsel of others. He packs each chapter with stories which illustrate how he and other Christians have learned to make decisions that please God.
Description : Every time we pray the Lord’s Prayer (or the “Our Father”) we are asking that God’s will be done. Do we realize what we are saying when we ask that God’s will be done? Is there any connection between the prayer that God’s will be “done” and Jesus’ statement that we are responsible to “do” God’s will? Most people, upon hearing the phrase “will of God,” react in one of three ways: with fear, confusion or resignation. Are our lives predetermined for us ahead of time? Is God’s plan something like a blueprint, a road-map, or more like a work of art or an act of love? Does God decide for us or leave us to make our own decisions? Is there a reason for everything? How can God be a loving God if he is responsible for the evil in the world? Does God want us to be rich? Do miracles still happen? Can prayer alter God’s will? Is it God's will when a student returns to the campus with a gun to kill his fellow-students? These are only a few of the questions raised and discussed in depth in this devotional guide to understanding the will of God. Other philosophical reflections in capsule form cover a wide diversity of topics in Part Two of the book, ranging from war and peace to servant leadership to what it really means to be “great.” Written from a Christian point of view, the book may be used as a tool for private reflection or to help with group discussions such as a community book club.

Description : During the tumultuous era of World War II, the city of London shattered under unrelenting bombs dropped by Nazi Germany. Millions of buildings were destroyed or damaged, tens of thousands of civilians were killed, and survivors were left to ask: How can this destruction be part of God’s plan?

Leslie Weatherhead crafted five sermons on understanding the will of God to help his congregation endure religious doubt as their city—and church—crumbled around them.

Description : Taken from Daniel 12:3, "Those Who Are Wise Will Shine" uncovers God's awesome power at work in the lives of those He chose to bear His message of Redemption, from Adam to Christ. The lives of these faithful brightly shined forth with His presence in the face of a world full of darkness. They knew He spoke to them, called them, and in turn, they were constrained to follow Him. There is no better way to shine for the Lord than to know with determined faith, who He really is and that where He leads, you will faithfully follow! These ancient pioneers of faith displayed just that! This work seeks to take the readers back to the basics of Redemption and Sanctification though the unfolding of the "Redemptive Thread" that links the blood lineage of our ancient forefathers to the rise of our Messiah, Jesus Christ. It ends with the joyous events still to come at His Second Advent. From creation to the cross, redemption and sanctification are certainly defined as two of the zealous desires of the Lord. The overall central theme of the Holy Scripture is redemption. Humanity is fallen, separated from God, and in dire need of reconciliation. The Lord’s perfect gift of redemption reconciles the breach. His work in us is what follows. Immediately He begins that work, and it will never be complete until we see Him face-to-face!! He calls us to be holy and set apart for His service. Never underestimate the value He has placed on you as a vessel chosen with purpose to be His emissary shining His light into this dark world. It is God’s foundational will for each of us to emanate the fragrance of Christ in all He calls us to be. Today, Christians in most places are still in need of the milk of the word. They lead a very shallow and powerless Christian life. It is one of the reasons the church is so lifeless in many places. It is not enough to know of the elementary principles of Christianity, we must also understand their meaning in terms of God's continual work in us. We must take them to heart. This volume seeks to lay a foundation of trusting God by understanding how God worked in the lives of past saints to make sure His message of redemption went unhindered so it could be ours today. Millions in the past millennia have gone beyond the superficial and with God's help, stood firmly and boldly on His side! A proper understanding of Redemption will only lead you to rejoice with “joy unspeakable” as you stand in unrestricted service to God. He has liberated us to fulfill our redemptive purpose. He truly has set us free! Hebrews 13:9b teaches us, “For it is good that the heart be established by grace...” The word established comes from ß?ßa??? which means to be firm or secure, literally propped up, as in a stick holding up a tent. If our heart is truly established by the true teaching of Grace, which comes from the nature of the Father, then when we fall, we still stand. Rejoice in Him...For Redemption provides just that!
