Marriage and God’s Will For Young People

What is the Scriptural emphasis regarding the “will of God” for our lives? Often we think of it in regards to who we are going to marry or where to work. God is concerned about those things, and will lead us into those things. However, in Scripture the “will of God” almost always refers to the moral will of God. Ephesians 5:17, “So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.”

Note: The point of telling Dan Smith’s story in this sermon is not that everyone will find their spouse through subjective confirmation upon the mention of a name. God confirms His will and brings believers together in a variety of ways. The point of the story is the point of the message: Give all your attention and energy to the pursuit of God, and He will work out everything else.
