Can’t make it through a day without choices:
- What should I do? Where should I go?
- How will this decision make a difference?
- Should I choose this or choose that?
- What should I do now?
I don’t know about you, but I struggle to make the right choices. I’m afraid of lost opportunities or making the wrong decision. My choices impact others. I know they’re not life threatening, but they’re important.
If only some one could guide me – some one who knew the beginning from the ending – then I would feel better. It would relief at least a little of my stress.
I ask the Lord for guidance and wonder if He hears. Then I open the Bible, and His words give me hope:
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go: I will counsel you and watch over you.
Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you. Psalm 32: 8-9 NIV
I had to read this Psalm at least three times before I grasped the truth. Maybe I have a hard time believing God cares enough to instruct and teach me, so I make the right choices. He doesn’t leave us there but will counsel us and watch over us.
Prayer is the first step in making the right decision. He does know the beginning from the end, and He watches over us. He knows the truth.
Listen to Learn
I know the Word says, to acknowledge Him, but I need to do something more. I need to trust Him. When we stop, listen and learn then He will lead us.
But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on His own; He will speak only what He hears, and He will tell you what is yet to come. John 16:13 NIV
My Dearest Father God,
I am here, listening. Teach me, and I will know. I turn my ear to your instruction. I yield my heart and hand to your guidance. Thank You for watching over me. I love You, Lord.
Have a blessed day,
Soli Deo Gloria,
