HOW TO MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION
At times in our lives, we are faced with life-or-death concerns and decisions about the care of a loved one. The number of decisions we make are enormous, like starting a new job or marriage. Because these are crucial decisions, we must strive to make the right decision. Making the wrong decision has unbelievable consequences. Every decision we make should be first consulting God. He will give us the wisdom and discernment we need. The scripture reference for this devotion is James 1:5 and reads in this manner.
“If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and He will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.”
In this passage, James wrote about consulting God when we are faced with making a decision. He spoke about faith and endurance in this chapter. He wrote that when we petition God, be sure our faith in Him is strong. Do not waver or be undecided, but trust and depend upon God, who will guide you on the right path. Read this entire chapter when you get a chance. Prayerfully, it will help you in your decision-making. I know it has helped me on more than one occasion. As Pastor, I have had to make many decisions, and when I follow God’s instructions, the decisions have always turned out right. You can never go wrong with God.
