Confused About God's Will?

Which of the following have kept you confused about God's will concerning the important decisions in your life?

God's will is hidden and I have to find it. Some people think that discovering God's will is like hunting for Easter eggs. God hides His answers to your big questions, and if you can't find them, too bad. This attitude does not line up with God's Word. God is not playing games with you. He is eager and willing to reveal His will to you if you are willing and open to receive it.

I don't really want to know God's will because I might not like it. Some people are afraid of God's will. They think He may ask them to marry someone they don't love or spend their lives doing something they don't want to do—like become a missionary in a remote jungle. But is God a kind of killjoy looking to make us miserable? Not according to Romans 8:32: "He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?" God wants to graciously give us all things that will fulfill our deepest desires. To be continued.
