Is there a perfect plan of God for our lives?
I’ve heard many things along these lines through the years.
- “The good is the enemy of best.”
- “Don’t settle for second best in your life.”
- “Compromise will limit your effectiveness and take you out of His Will”
This doesn’t even begin to consider the search for our spouse, the match made in heaven.
With this thinking comes a great deal of pressure and fear.
The implication is that unless we perfectly discern the will of God for our lives we end up in some alternate universe.
We endeavor to crack the mystery through prayer, godly counsel, and the ever-present laying of fleeces.
I literally know people who have been paralyzed with fear of their next decision derailing his Divine Plan. They could not even get out of bed.
