Hyper-spiritual approaches to finding God's will don't work. It's time to try something new: Give up.

Pastor and author Kevin DeYoung counsels Christians to settle down, make choices, and do the hard work of seeing those choices through. Too often, he writes, God's people tinker around with churches, jobs, and relationships, worrying that they haven't found God's perfect will for their lives. Or - even worse - they do absolutely nothing, stuck in a frustrated state of paralysed indecision, waiting...waiting...waiting for clear, direct, unmistakable direction.

But God doesn't need to tell us what to do at each fork in the road. He's already revealed his plan for our lives: to love him with our whole hearts, to obey His Word, and after that, to do what we like.

No need for hocus-pocus. No reason to be directionally challenged. Just do something.

This second edition now includes an 8 session study guide.

Endorsement written for Just Do Something

God told me that He wants you to read this book. Actually, that is one of the many mistaken notions about God's will that Kevin DeYoung wants to correct.

Endorsement written for Just Do Something

The truth is that God is more committed to showing you His will than you are to discovering it. This book shows that discovering God's will happens not as we 'let go and let God,' but as we trust God and get going.

Just Do Something

Tim Challies, Challies.com, Apr 7, 2009

In a brief Foreword, Joshua Harris says that this is his new go-to book on the subject of God’s will and decision making. I am inclined to agree with him, at least for those who are looking for a kind of entry level book. Friesen is still the most thorough and the one who lays the foundation, but this title is certainly much easier to read and much more likely to be read. I am quite convinced that any Christian who reads Just Do Something will benefit from it. I unreservedly recommend that you do just that.... continue reading

“Excellent, easy to read, everyone should read it!”

I have read and heard other teaching on guidance and decision-making so didn't think I needed to read another book on the topic but I am so pleased I did.

Kevin de Young has a style of writing which I find very accessible and relevant - it is perhaps most suited to those in their 20s to 40s.

The book would be suitable for new Christians as well as more mature believers who need a good reminder of truths and principles.
