What should I do? I think we all face that overwhelming decision in life, where a solid, defined answer seems out of reach. The good part is it’s not out of reach for God.
Proverbs has great insight into facing difficult questions in our lives.
“The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.” Proverbs 16:1-2.
If we rely on Him to guide us in ALL facets of our lives, those decisions will come easier. It’s when we turn our back on Him and try to live within our own strength that life generally becomes more complicated. So while we come up with great ideas or in many cases bad ideas He’s there to guide us through the open door or help to turn us back from the closed one.
So how can you know what is the right choice? Keep your head in Scripture or in other words, read your Bible daily. When you’re close to the Word, you are close to Christ.
And “pray without ceasing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:17.
That means be sure to have that ongoing and open communication with God. Don’t just call on Him when times are tough or when you’re at your worst. He’s our Father and He loves us and wants to hear from us every day! How great is that?
When you read your Bible and pray daily, you will become more sensitive to Him and His desires for your life. Remember the answers are from the Lord. And through His many blessings, He has made provisions for us to seek help from those that are wise.
Proverbs teaches us that “Without consultation, plans are frustrated, but with many counselors they succeed.” Proverbs 15:22.
That’s great news! Sometimes He puts us in position where we can’t make the right choice without help from another. Pray on that as well and God will provide trustworthy advisers.
God didn’t mean for us to go on this journey alone. He brings help to our lives through His teachings and through those caring souls that meet us along the way.
Remember that “The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer” and “He hears the prayer of the righteous.” Proverbs 15:28-29. So think on your decision, keeping in mind all your teaching and instruction from God. Pray and ask Him for help.
You may not get the answer you want, as He may say no, but He will ALWAYS answer.
God Bless friends!
