Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on our own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
- Proverbs 3:5-6
Decisions are a part of life.
Some we make without even thinking about them—from what is for dinner to what to wear.
However, some decisions have the potential to affect others, our reputations, and our witness.
Yet, other choices don’t have a right or wrong aspect to them. So how do we know which one is best? How do we make the right decision that honors the Lord and provides the best course of action for our lives?
Did you know that God does not measure success in terms of results but in terms of obedience?
He gives us the free will and choice to live our lives as we desire.
That gift of freedom is so special because it allows us to choose to trust and follow Him.
If God took away our free will, we would be like robots.
Instead, He desires that we choose to have a relationship with Him.
As your heart and mind align with Him, you will have peace in your decision-making.
God is looking at your heart. He will support you, faithfully following Him.
Prayer: Dear Jesus, make your ways known to me today. Please guide me in your ways so that my path will be made straight. Please help me in the decisions ahead of me to follow you and honor you. Amen.
