God’s will vs. man’s
I was reflecting the will of God and discernment these past days, it seems as though some of us seem to want to sway our friends this way or that with regards to marriage, or ministry to name a few things. ( I am guilty as charged. – sorry Kamil and Jay)
There seems to be a tension between deciphering God’s will vs the will of your friends and loved ones. Pertaining directly to Missions work it has been said that a missionary should be able to point back to a specific time where God called them to the mission field, not their friends, churchmates, loved ones etc…
The other side of the coin points to the fact that God can and does speak through the people that know Him and as well the people that love us (God has spoken through me using non-believers too). If God is incarnate in our midst via believers in particular, how does one discern his will verses man’s ?
