This study addresses two basic questions: does God really guide people, and how do we balance God's will for us with daily circumstances, personal inclinations, and the advice of friends? Searching the life of Paul, the study exposes principles which apply to daily life. The first three segments deal with God's will; 4-5, the Holy Spirit's guidance; studies 6-10, God's guidance and personal preference, good sense, circumstances, counsel, and sovereignty; 11-12, trusting God for guidance. Fisherman Bible studies are among the most popular on the market. There are nearly 60 book, character, topical, or core studies to choose from, so you're bound to find something just right for your group.
