Great Sermon! Pastor Baucham that was fantastic sermon. Sir, you speak the truth and do under the authority of the word of God.
I'm listening to this message a 2nd time. I believe that part of the reason people "try to know God's will via feelings and signs" is that it requires precious little effort.
Whereas the method you recommended, opening the word of God, reading and studying the word of God, getting godly counsel from people who know the word of God, obeying what you do know...that requires a purposeful effort and learning to deny yourself and obeying God's word.
Thank you for applying the straight standard of God's word.
