Why won’t God reveal his special will for my life already? Because he doesn’t intend to.... So says Kevin DeYoung in this punchy book about making decisions the godly way. Many of us are listening for the still small voice to tell us what’s next instead of listening to the clear voice in scripture telling us what’s now. 

God does have a will for your life, but it is the same as everyone else’s: Seek first the kingdom of God. And quit floundering.  

With pastoral wisdom and tasteful wit, DeYoung debunks unbiblical ways of understanding God’s will and constructs a simple but biblical alternative: Live like Christ. He exposes the frustrations of our waiting games and unfolds the freedom of finding God’s will in scripture and then simply doing it. This book is a call to put down our Magic 8-Balls and pick up God’s Word. It’s a call to get wisdom, follow Christ, be holy, and live freely. To just do something.

Wisdom & Common Sense

When we don't know what to do, we do nothing. Love this common sense approach and motivation to do something even if it's small. Short and to the point. Stop sitting around waiting for a sign.

Succinct and Bible sourced

I liked how short this book was, but also that it was trustworthy because the author used God’s word to back up his points.

Wow!!!!

I didn’t think I needed to read this because I generally understood God’s will for my life according to Scripture. But I had read Crazy Busy years ago and a friend said she was going to read this.

I’m the one paralyzed by making the “wrong” decision. Paralysis by analysis. Is this what God wants me to do? Should we move? Do we stay? We can’t afford to have kids here but there never felt like a “spiritual enough” reason to do certain things.

This book was convicting and freeing all together. Thank you so much for this book & referencing Scripture!

Spiritually challenging

A bare-bones approach to God‘s will, if you’ve been searching for God‘s will your whole life chances are you’ve already found it in his word and in your Christian walk. The author is Calvinistic but even if you’re not a Calvinist or reformed he has some interesting and helpful things to say. Give it a listen with an open mind and you might have a new appreciation for God‘s authentic will. Could lead to a much deeper walk with the Lord.

Just What We Need

What an excellent book on the will of God, from a biblical point of view! I listened to this book while reading a much longer book, “Decision Making and the Will of God.“ In a much shorter format, Kevin de Young does an excellent job of handling the subject and distilling the main principles of this topic in a short and readable version. I particularly was looking for a quicker read that I could recommend to others…my daughter in particular. This was the one. Highly recommended!

I wish I had read this book when I was 18

For years I myself was using all of these faulty techniques (thrown a fleece out anyone?) to try and discern the will of God for my life, leading to much confusion and doubt.

This brisk, breezy book shows that God's will can be known and it's also exceedingly practical.

I also enjoyed the narration.

Sooo good!!

Finally a Christian book about a healthy perspective on being in God’s will and what it’s like to walk in it.

Great short book

Biblical, honest & straight to the point. It takes away the fluff and gives you freedom from all the overwhelming “Find your calling” teachings. Loved it!
