How do you read your circumstances? Do you try to interpret opportunities as indicators of God’s will? Here are a few additional thoughts on the will of God and so-called “open doors”:

  1. Not every opportunity, (a.k.a. an open door) is God’s will.
  2. The more education and wealth you have, the more open doors you will have.
  3. Sometimes crashing through a closed door is God’s will for you.
  4. Finding God’s will for your career is a challenge created by wealth and privilege.
  5. Finding God’s will for your spouse is a challenge created by modern dating practices.
  6. Most of the time, the Bible addresses the will of God in terms of developing godliness.
  7. The details of your life (college, career, spouse) are less important to God than godliness.
  8. Become godly and the details of your life will take care of themselves.
  9. Godliness is a matter of obedience more than knowledge.
  10. The most difficult thing about God’s will, therefore, is doing it.  Knowing it is the easy part.
