3 mistakes keeping you from discovering God’s will

1. They listen to other voices instead of God’s 

In today’s world, people are surrounded by so many voices. We have thousands of voices that are shouting at us to listen to them. Unfortunately, many of the voices distract us from hearing God’s voice.

Taking the time to know who God is and how He speaks to us is one of the most important things you can do to help you grow in your desire to follow God.

2. Lack the faith to take a step of faith 

It’s hard to take a step of faith. You may not see the outcome, but you know you need to take that step. However, you are afraid of the unknown, and you are afraid of going forward not knowing what you are getting into. 

You need the confidence to take each step by faith. 

To help you take those steps, be sure to check out Stephanie Miller’s presentation called Living Out Your Calling Once God Has Revealed It To You. 

3. They don’t know what steps to take next 

Maybe you are a seasoned Christian, and you know how God speaks to you but you are not sure what steps you should take next. You have biblical answers but need help to apply the truth you know to your life. 

Take some time to learn what area in your life you want direction in and find a presentation that can help you grow in that area. 

Some suggestions are a presentation from Lori Armstrong called Cultivating a Joyful Heart, and Alicia Michelle’s presentation called How to Use the Bible + Brain Science to Better Manage Your Emotions.
