How Do I Know?

by on May 10, 2012

How do I know Christ has called me to  ________ ?  How can I be sure?

Do you ever have these kinds of questions? Here’s a helpful answer:

You can’t be sure. Not with the certainty for which you crave. (And if you think you can, you are probably self-deceived.)

Rather, God gives us wisdom by his Spirit to know his character and general will (Colossians 1:9). And he gives us freedom to exercise that wisdom in making our choices. It is a mark of immaturity to expect to be told what to do in some more immediate way. And so articles on guidance are always disappointing; because God is more concerned with our godliness than our guidance.
