How often do we hear the admonition to be "in the center of God's will?" Being a firm believer in God's sovereign purposes, I question this idea. What happens if we are a bit left or right of center? If we cannot hit the center mark, how close is close enough? Sometimes we hear the distinction between the "perfect" will of God and the "permissive" will of God." However, since we can only know His revealed will in His Word, why bother with anything else? Dr. Ray Pritchard provides further insight here.
