A question we all have from time to time is, "Is this God's will for me?" Sometimes the "this" has to do with a job, sometimes a relationship, sometimes the purchasing of a new car. Thankfully, God has revealed much of his will to us in the Bible. But what about that which we must deduce?
In this message from John 20, I share three insights into the Mystery of God's Will. I know it will be helpful to you as Holy Spirit guides your heart into his Word. Let me know what you think...and may God bless you as you discover and experience his perfect will for your life.
