Making a Decision?
“From One Christian to Another…”
Are you wrestling with any kind of choice or decision? When making plans, do you ask the Lord what His plans are? Do we seek God’s will or ask God to cooperate with our will? Don’t leave God out of it! Nothing is a substitute for God’s wisdom and strength. God’s Word says, “In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.” We need His Presence and Guidance for whatever life hands us.
Who Are We Trying to Please?
It’s all a matter of focus – what we are focusing on, who we are trying to please. Ourselves or God? Who’s in charge? The real question is: do we want God’s will in our lives? Many times, we think God won’t want for us what we want for ourselves. So we hesitate in “wanting God’s will.” We can’t trust that He knows what’s best for us. We think we know what’s best for us better.
We Aren’t in Control, God is
And yet, He’s God. He’s ultimately the One in control. When you think about it, what do you really control? You may look after your health, but you don’t control when you die. You don’t tell your heart to continue to beat, your lungs to breathe…You can’t keep loved ones from dying. You can’t keep from growing old. Aren’t these the things that really matter? In light of that, other things seem trivial. God controls all the ultimate things. And He is more than willing to help us make wise decisions in accordance with His will. He is the source of all wisdom.
Let Him Guide You!
Turn to His Word. He wants to guide your life more than you know. He’s there. He’s listening. Don’t leave Him out of your life.
Blessings on your journey of faith, anita
Beyond Myself: The Farm Girl & the African Chief
I describe my journey of faith in my memoir of my love story. During the 1960s, I married my anthropology professor who was a hereditary African Chief of the Mende tribe in West Africa. This led me to visit Africa a number of times and live in his remote village for a year with our 3 boys doing lay missionary work. I certainly didn’t do things perfectly. And yet, the Lord has been so gracious in my life! I can only praise and thank Him!
