Everybody wants to live well, but what does that look like? And how do we get there? If I choose Door #1, how do I know Door #2 wouldn’t have been the better choice? What if we make a mistake? Without knowing the future, it is often difficult to know which is the best decision. Thankfully, He knows the future. He knows the best way for us to experience abundant life in Christ—and He wants us to know it too! God doesn’t hide His will or make it difficult to find. It is readily available to those who want to know and follow Him. In this study, we will examine what Scripture reveals about how to know God’s will. When we learn to follow it, we will experience the abundant life God desires for us.
