A friend of mine mentioned on Facebook how much he loves connecting people, especially when he feels certain the meeting was a God-thing. Someone posted a response question. How do you know when it’s a God-thing?
Good question. Just a day before seeing those posts, I read an article about the Christian tendency to believe “God is in this” if everything falls into place. Yet, this can’t be right. Hard work is a good thing, isn’t it? Overcoming obstacles, not letting limitations decide your course of action, charting a path through the muck and mire – these are qualities we admire and aspire to, right?
So, if you’re blocked at every turn…how do you decide that pushing through is the right thing, or that giving up is the right thing? Which is it? In short, what tells you that you’re making the choice that keeps you in God’s will?
