@RickWarren: To know God’s will, stop listening for a voice and start looking for a verse.
Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
So What is God’s will for everyone?
John Thomas from focus on the family writes,
“Scripture makes it abundantly clear that God first and foremost wants us to know Him, to have a relationship with Him, to bring glory to Him by the way we live our lives, by how we relate to Him and others, summed up best in this Scripture passage: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind, and love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matt. 22:37-39; Mark 12:29-31).
I believe if we truly desire to know God’s will it will be revealed both generally and specifically. And the best place to search for God’s Will truly is in God’s word.
“Seek and you will find.” Matthew 7:7
