Recently, my mom and I had to make a decision about my dad’s guardianship, due to my dad’s dementia. We decided that it was best for him to not have my mom be power of attorney due to her age. The Bible teaches that we are to trust the Lord (Proverbs 3:5), but it also teaches that we are to commit our way to the Lord and He will establish our paths (Proverbs 16:3). A book titled, Just Do Something: A Liberating Approach to Finding God’s Will, by Kevin DeYoung, has recently been published. This book attempts to explain what God’s will is while sweeping away mystical ideas about God’s will by emphasizing the teaching of the Word of God.

Just Do Something seeks to take the wisdom of Proverbs and apply it today’s world. As DeYoung does this, he elaborates on what it means to seek the Lord and His righteousness (Matthew 6:33). He rightly notes throughout his book that Christians are to be a people of the Word of God, be in prayer, and seek out godly counselors, since in the abundance of godly counselors there is wisdom. Just Do Something is a highly recommended book that will help readers to know what God’s will is from His Word, resulting in them being equipped to make godly decisions to the glory of God.
