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? What is God’s will in all of this? After City Temple in London was reduced to rubble, Rev. 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. Weatherhead’s sermons were eventually published as The Will of God, a resource that has sold more than a million copies and has been a lifeline for grieving persons seeking to understand God’s purpose for their pain.

Description : The book is about the importance of knowing Gods will for ones life, which is paramount in having a harmonious and fulfilling relationship with God. When theres uncertainty concerning the will of God in any aspect of ones existence, it results to confusion and anxiety. Too many Christians go through life and never realize Gods perfect will during their sojourn in time. In doing so, believers are robbed of the privilege of experiencing Gods best for their lives. It also deprives them of having an overcoming, fruitful, spirit-filled, joyful, and peaceful life. Not discerning Gods perfect will for your life will cause you to live far below your rights and privileges in Christ. The recognition of Gods purpose for your life will provide a sense of identity, belongingness, vocation, and guidance, which serves to connect you to a higher purposethe Kingdom of God. The truth is that not much attention is paid to this very critical area of Christianity today. However, it is the very heart of efficient and authentic Christian living. Without a clear understanding of Gods will in ones life, one may feel like or even become a square peg in a round hole, especially as it pertains to identifying the appropriate ministries and where to serve effectively in the body of Christ.
