??? - DREAMS

The Rock Church of Fenton, Lake Fenton, Linden, and Byron, Michigan exists to preach the Word of God, Baptize, and Disciple  DREAMS

Overview

Many times in our life we get find ourselves trying to determine what the will of God is for our life when he is waiting for us to take the first step of faith- belief that he can use us. Once we believe God can use us, many of us get held back back not knowing how to determine what the will of God actually is for our lives. Sometimes we wont take the next step of faith because we fear it is the wrong step. 

But what if God was vague in the Bible of what his will for us is for a reason? What if he gave us principles like go make disciples and then left the rest for us to dream up what that means and how we go about doing it. What if his will was less about the details of what our next step in life is and more about figuring out how we can live out making disciples with every passion within us, the talents we have, and the opportunities that happen in our lives?

Maybe a better question is not what is God’s will for my life, but rather, how can I use the things he gave me to fulfill his will of making disciples?
