Resources for Changing Lives - Guidance: Have I Missed God's Best?ISBN: 9780875526942
What choice should I make? How do I know that my decision will fit with God's plan for me?
"We tend to think that while God has a 'best' plan for our life, he also has 'cheaper' plans for people who miss the best," writes Petty. "But for those who are in Christ, there is only one plan."
Petty explains that God's plan and our actions work in concert. With all the decisions we face and despite the mistakes we make, God works in all things for the good, transforming us into the image of Christ (Rom. 8:28). How comforting to know that our choices fulfill that plan in every detail.
Resources for Changing Lives provide book- and booklet-length counsel and guidance from a biblical perspective. Counselors including David Powlison, Paul David Tripp, and Ed Welch get to the heart of our struggles and help us understand the spiritual issues involved, guiding us to biblical truths and outcomes that honor God and teach us how to live.
James C. Petty (MDiv, DMin, Westminster Theological Seminary) is executive director of the Children's Jubilee Fund in Erdenheim, Pennsylvania.
