We are back on track in our Bible 101 articles. Today, we are moving on from Creation and taking our next step in the Storyline of Scripture, which is the Fall.
For a refresher, here are the six steps: Creation, Fall, Israel, Jesus, Church, Creation.
We need God's guidance for every area of our lives--financial decisions, marriage, business, education, and anything that concerns us. Sometimes we're going in the right direction, but the timing isn't right. God not only knows what we should do, but how and when as well. Some choices may seem fantastic from our perspective, but if they aren't God's will, we will regret them eventually. As Christ's followers, we have the Holy Spirit within us to guide us into all truth.
