Product Description

A basic guide to discerning the will of God. "How do I know what God's will is for my life?" It is perhaps the most common question asked by Christians today. Dr. Bill Thrasher has provided a basic guide to the fundamentals of seeking God's will in Living the Life God Has Planned. Thrasher teaches readers that they must first seek to know God on a more intimate level before His will becomes more apparent to them. Readers of all maturity levels will appreciate the simplicity and practical nature of this product.

More Christians struggle with the will of God than any other spiritual concern.  Bill Thrasher provides an excellent guide to discernment in decision making for daily living.  Comprehensive, realistic and biblical.  You can't afford to miss this one!
-Howard G. Hendricks, Distinguished Professor, Chairman, Center for Christian Leadership, Dallas Theological Seminary

Another book on living in the will of God?  Yes, but this one is different, for its focus is on the Person of God as the center of our lives and the answer to all our questions and needs.  Good theology.  Good exposition.  Good Illustrations.
-Charles C. Ryrie, Author and Scholar

Books about the will of God abound, but this one is especially helpful.  It teaches you that knowing the character of God is the basis for understanding and enjoying the will of God.  No clever formulas or simplistic procedures in these pages--just solid practical truth from Scripture, truth that transforms life.
-Warren W. Wiersbe, Author and Conference Speaker

Among the numerous articles and books I have read on this topic of discovering God's will, Dr. Bill Thrasher's book stands out as one of the best.  Why?  He places the quest to know God's will into biblical perspective.  God wants us to know His will, but He wants to provide something much more valuable than a road map.  He offers Himself through His Son Jesus Christ.  In this gem of a book the reader will see that those who become intimate with the Shepherd are the ones who most clearly hear His voice.
-Lyle Dorsett, Professor of Educational Ministries & Evangelism, Wheaton College

Living the Life God Has Planned is a book for everyone.  Gender and age exclude no one who desires to find, follow, and finish God's plan for their life. (Eph. 2:10).  Since the highest end of God's will is God Himself, relationship with God through His Son and by His Spirit is the only way to "prove what is good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God" (Rom. 12:2).
My dear friend, Dr. Bill Thrasher, expounds and exemplifies both doctrine and delight of knowing and doing God's will in daily life.  In a day of confusion, purposelessness, and frustration in the world--and, alas, in the church as well--we have in this book a clear guide for all of us.  Thank you, Bill Thrasher, for an excellent treatment of a subject that demands the attention of all who desire to live for the glory of God alone.  I pray that this book will bless the multitudes who seek God's best for their lives.
