This Sunday, the Lord willing, we will complete our study of God’s will from James 4:13-17.
Last time we saw how the Bible speaks of God’s will in two different senses: His moral/revealed will (James 4:17) and His sovereign will (James 4:15).
We also saw how some believers get into trouble by trying to go beyond God’s revealed will (Deut. 29:29) into the secret things of God.

This week we will look positively at how God guides us through His Word, through godly counsel, by the Holy Spirit and by prayer.
We will also see that there are many situations in life in which God’s revealed will allows us freedom to choose among valid options.
Finally we will again be reminded that we must submit our decisions to God’s sovereign will.
