Christ—A Great Advantage

If you have decided to follow Christ you have a great advantage for finding the answers to your questions about marriage and career. God loves you and has a great plan for your life. Jeremiah 29:11 states, “I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” God also declares, "I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you" (Psalm 32:8). All you have to do is find out what that plan is—God's will—and your worries are over.

Easier said than done, you say. Many Christian students are aware that God has a plan for their lives, but they are clueless about how to find out what that plan is. His "counsel" is available, but it is often missed, ignored, or misunderstood. Why? Because people get hung up on several wrong attitudes about God's will.
