Decisions, decisions, decisions! Help with God-honoring decisions!

Decisions.jpgDecisions, decisions, decisions! Some of them pretty easy to make – others though are tough to make! For an authentic Christ-follower, the desire is to make the right decision – the God-honoring, Christ-exalting, Bible obeying decision! Sometimes the choice is clear (but still difficult for us) – at other times the choices are not so clear and Godly direction is needed…
 
We have a promise! I read it this morning in the English Standard Version of the Bible… it goes like this:
 
“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” (James 1:5-8 ESV)
 
But I’ve got to tell you I really like the old Living Bible paraphrase of that passage! It really resonates with me! I hope it is a blessing to you as well…
 
“If you want to know what God wants you to do, ask Him, and He will gladly tell you, for he is always ready to give a bountiful supply of wisdom to all who ask Him; he will not resent it. But when you ask Him, be sure that you really expect Him to tell you, for a doubtful mind will be as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind; and every decision you then make will be uncertain, as you turn first this way and then that. If you don’t ask with faith, don’t expect the Lord to give you any solid answer.” (James 1:5-8 Living Bible)
 
Got a decision you need to make? God will help you to make one that honors Him and is in keeping with His will! It’s a promise!
