Discovering Your

Destiny


Discovering your 1356064

God wants to reveal his will

to you more than you

want to know it.

~ Garry Friesen


Discovering your 1356064

We must substitute the idea of finding Gods will with that of following Gods program for guidance.

~ Dr. Bruce Walthe


Discovering your 1356064

It is easier for me to know Gods will for my wife than it is for me to know Gods will for my life.

~ Charles R. Swindoll


Discovering your 1356064

Everything that has happened in your life to this moment has been part of Gods determined will for your life. It has happened because He has determined it to be so.

~ Grant Howard


Discovering your 1356064

Scripture presents man as being a free moral agent who is responsible for his decisions. God is not a Cosmic Puppeteer, and we are not marionettes that jump when He jerks our strings.

~ Garry Friesen


Discovering your 1356064

Nothing happens unless the Omnipotent wills it to happen.

~ Augustine


Discovering your 1356064

Scripture does not support the view that there must be a specific divine reason behind all events.

~ Gregory A. Boyd


Discovering your 1356064

All events are governed by Gods secret plan.

~ John Calvin


Discovering your 1356064

Everything that happens is part of Gods will.

~ Pastor Bill Thompson


Discovering your 1356064

Nothing happens to the Christian by chance.

~ Dr. Bruce Walthe


Discovering your 1356064

This is a challenging world where chance has a role and in which things do not always go as God would desire. But for this same reason it is a world that is, by Gods grace, capable of love. Hence God chose to create this world rather than the safer but uninteresting world of predestined puppets.

~ Gregory A. Boyd


Discovering your 1356064

If chance existed, it would destroy Gods sovereignty.

~ R. C. Sproul


Discovering your 1356064

The race is not to the swift

or the battle to the strong,

nor does food come to the wise

or wealth to the brilliant

or favor to the learned;

but time and chance happen to them all.

~ King Solomon

(Ecclesiastes 9:11)


Discovering your 1356064

God desires creatures who are capable of choosing love, so he risks the possibility that their free decisions will interact in unfortunate and unplanned ways.

~ Gregory A. Boyd


Discovering your 1356064

Control is an illusion, you infantile egomaniac!

Nobody controls anything.

~ Nicole Kidman to Tom Cruise

in Days Of Thunder

(Not a very good movie; so dont bother renting it.)


Discovering your 1356064

Why would a God who wants us to do His will hide it from us? Why do Christians go through such convoluted, painful efforts to know it? His will neednt be hidden or elusive; a mystery, a puzzle, an enigma.

~ Dr. Bruce Walthe


Discovering your 1356064

The idea of an individual will of God for every detail of a persons life is not found in Scripture. The most startling ramification is that many believers are investing a great deal of time and energy searching for something that is nonexistent.

~ Garry Friesen


Discovering your 1356064

Today is mine. Tomorrow is none of my business. If I peer anxiously into the fog of the future, I will strain my spiritual eyes so that I will not see clearly what is required of me now.

~ Elisabeth Elliott


Discovering your 1356064

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is his good, pleasing and perfect will.

~ Romans 12:2, NIV


Discovering your 1356064

You cannot continue life as usual or stay where you are, and go forward with God at the same time.

~ Henry Blackaby


Discovering your 1356064

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is his good, pleasing and perfect will.

~ Romans 12:1-2, NIVi

Perhaps this is the reason he was separated from you for a while, so that you might have him back forever, 16 no longer as a slave but more than a slave, a beloved brother especially to me but how much more to you, both in the flesh and in the Lord.

~ Philemon 15-16, NRSV
