When the Lord was beginning to deliver me from my errors regarding how to “find God’s will for my life” there were several great teachers and references thst were helpful resources. Kevin DeYoung’s book, “Just Do Something: How to Make a Decision Without Dreams, Visions, Fleeces, Open Doors, Random Bible Verses, Casting Lots, Liver Shivers, Writing in the Sky, etc.” was one of those great resources. I thought I’d share a couple of his YouTube videos that summarize the gist of his teaching on the topic, but I also highly reccomend the book to anyone struggling to come out of the errors of charismania be it at any level.
It would be a good exercise to ask your grandparents sometimes if they felt fulfilled in their careers. They’ll probably look at you as if you’re speaking a different language, because you are. Fulfillment was not their goal. Food was, and faithfulness too. Most older folks would probably say something like, “I never thought about fulfillment. I had a job. I ate. I lived. I raised my family. I went to church. I was thankful.” Kevin DeYoung
