How do we know God's will for our lives? How do we know we are making the right decisions? I have often pondered on these questions at different times in my life. I found this quote the other day and thought I would share.
"Obedience to every command puts me on the track and keeps me there. Decisions of course must be made, but as in railroad, so in life - a block signal, a crisis, is lighted only where there is special need. I may not always be in sight of a 'go' light, but sticking to the tracks will take me where the next one is. Understanding the will of the Lord is believing Him, that He will - in all situations where I have obeyed - make that way His own way, effectual for eternity." - Jim Elliot, quoted in Shadow of the Almighty pg. 128
