How to Discover God's Will -- A Conversation with Wayne Pederson - EP 26

Some of the best quotes I’ve heard about God’s will come from Chuck Swindoll:

  • “When the Lord makes it clear you're to follow Him in this new direction, focus fully on Him and refuse to be distracted by comparisons with others.”
  • “God doesn't work on our timetable. He has a plan that He will execute perfectly and for the highest, greatest good of all, and for His ultimate glory.”
  • “Your call will become clear as as your mind is transformed by the reading of Scripture and the internal work of God's Spirit. The Lord never hides His will from us. In time, as you obey the call first to follow, your destiny will unfold before you. The difficulty will lie in keeping other concerns from diverting your attention.”

Knowing God’s will is something every believer hungers for, especially at critical crossroads of life. You might be in that place right now.

Whether it’s one of the biggies like career, spouse, location or just the little things of life, we want God to reveal the answer to us.

In this episode, I pull the curtain back and share a story from my life. Our guest, Wayne Pederson, shares his experience of discovering God's will at critical crossroads in his life. 

Wayne recently shared with a group of us about how God led him each time. I was fascinated, so I asked him to come on the podcast. Wayne Pederson and I have served in missions media ministry together for many years. We’re both part of the leadership of the Alliance for the Unreached.

Wayne has led two major Christian radio networks—Northwestern and Moody. He was also the CEO of Reach Beyond, and serves on many ministry boards, including one he’ll tell us about in our fascinating interview. Wayne is so approachable and friendly, as you’ll hear in the interview. Before we got into the topic of God’s will, I asked Wayne to tell us about a fascinating experience he just had.

You'll learn solid principles you can apply to making major decisions in your life.
