Now, I know there are lots of good reasons why someone may still be in school past thirty. …Just because you’ve been on the planet for one-fourth to one-third of your life and still haven’t completed ‘”the transition” to adulthood doesn’t mean you’re automatically a moocher, a lazy bum, or a self-indulgent vagabond.
But it could mean that. (13)
…our search for the will of God has become an accomplice in the postponement of growing up, a convenient out for the young (or old) Christian floating through life without direction or purpose. Too many of us have passed off our instability, inconsistency, and endless self-exploration as “looking for God’s will,” as if not making up our minds and meandering through life were marks of spiritual sensitivity.” (15)
Trusting in God’s will of decree is good. Following His will of desire is obedient. Waiting for God’s will of direction is a mess. It is bad for your life, harmful to your sanctification, and allows too many Christians to be passive tinkerers who strangely feel more spiritual the less they actually do. (26)
God is not a Magic 8-Ball we shake up and peer into whenever we have a decision to make. He is a good God who gives us brains, shows us the way of obedience, and invites us to take risks for Him. (26)
I’m pretty sure most of us would be more fulfilled if we didn’t fixate on fulfillment quite so much (32)
Because we have confidence in God’s will of decree, we can radically commit ourselves to His will of desire, without fretting over a hidden will of direction.
In other words, God doesn’t take risks, so we can. (41)
