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.
Isaiah 30:21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying,
This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
Have you ever struggled with a decision and just didn’t know what to do? Perhaps you are struggling with a challenging decision right now. We’ve all been there and if not now, will surely be there again. However, there are some decisions which can cause considerable stress as you teeter totter back and forth about what to do, end results, the pros and cons, the what ifs. The truth of the matter is that no one knows what the next second will bring, let alone tomorrow. Only God knows. And God is saying bring your concerns to Me and trust Me to handle them. Trust Me to handle that problem for you.
When you are serving God, your problems don’t all just go away, although God could do that - but one thing is for sure, God never leaves His children alone to handle any situation. He’s always there to guide you and steer you in the right direction. And the beautiful thing about serving God is that even when you mis-step, when you turn to God, He can use even your mis-step for good.
Whatever decision you are struggling with, whatever decision may be causing you stress and strain, take it to God in prayer. Pour out you heart to Him knowing that your heart is always in the safest place with God. Trust Him to see you through that situation and begin to thank Him for His loving guidance. You will see new possibilities that you never ever saw before and God will lead You to the best possible outcome.
Dear Father God,
Thank You Lord for Your guidance and for Your loving-kindness. Lord I know that for every problem You have a solution, and You reveal that solution to those who are abiding within Your will. Lord, O what needless pains we bear by not taking everything to You in prayer and not trusting You with our whole heart in every situation. Lord I ask that You help me with the decisions that I face and those yet to come. And Lord I pray that someone today who is struggling with the decision to give their life to You would make the best decision of their life and simply submit to You, to Your will and to Your way. Thank You Lord,
In Jesus name I pray,
