Making the Right Choices

 Sometimes in life we can be faced with tough decisions. Should I stay or should I go? Decisions we make everyday can be life altering, they can result in life or death. Some decisions we make are very simple and nonessential, for instance; what shall I eat for dinner tonight or what flavor ice cream for dessert? Generally, the answers to those questions are not life threatening and carry a minimal degree of importance or risk. However, there are decisions we must make in life that are vital to our daily life and success. There maybe decisions we have to make that involve more than just our own lives.

How do we make tough decisions? How do we resolve what to do, when we don't know what to do?

Seeking God's guidance in moments such as these is paramount to a successful outcome and sustaining victory. My friend, God wants you to succeed, however, we must be willing to follow instructions. The word choice defined (online reference) - an act of selecting or making a decision when faced with two or more possibilities. The freedom to choose was granted to mankind by God, however, I believe that God wants us to make wise choices based upon truth. Hearing and receiving the truth positions us to trust and obey God.

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

God has every answer we will ever need to make the right decisions for our lives and those who trust us to make decisions involving their lives. He will never fail us. All we need to do is come to Him and ask for help. Why shop around when the Greater One lives right on the inside of you? No one has greater counsel than God and besides He is always available.

Your life is too precious to entrust to the opinions of mere unchanged men. God says that our thoughts are not His thoughts (Isaiah 55:8). When we seek human guidance we limit and obscure godly wisdom. We must trust God and seek Him for every area of our lives not just the things and/or situations that seem impossible. He wants to be involved in everyday life. He said in the above scripture - in all our ways to acknowledge Him. Many times people are so use to controlling their own lives and making all the decisions themselves that when they really seek God for help they are unfamiliar with His ways so they miss out on His instructions. They are so use to doing things their own way without any Divine input that they overlook the gentle leading of the Holy Spirit, our Comforter.

Making the right decision involves seeking with patience and persistence the plans and purposes of God and not being in a hurry to carelessly and anxiously rush into choosing without His counsel.

Jeremiah 33:3 (AMP)
Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).
So slow down and be willing to throw down every thought and suggestion that comes to you to tempt you into making your own decisions without God. Practice waiting on The Lord and be of good courage!
