Barb and I have been on a bit of a travelling binge the last few weeks. A cruise to Alaska and a road trip to Saskatchewan. These types of adventures require decisions to be made, most with clear thinking, some split second. You decide on places to stay, forms of transportation, schedules and a dozen or more other decisions that must be made. On the other hand a road trip can lead to split second decisions to be made in traffic along with other last minute decisions as part of the journey.
Now what about the journey of Life, Decisions, decisions, decisions. Whatever decisions are made they often create results with both good and bad outcomes in life. As Christians, we believe this world is temporary and Christ’s return is imminent. Our life choices, then, become that much more important–we want to live lives of meaning, yet know there’s so much more to come. It can be difficult to balance the here and now with what’s next, but the good news is God has already given us the tools we need to make a wise decision.
Here are three ways to focus on what really matters when the decisions are required.
Trust that God will let you know what to do in His time.
- Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” Whenever you turn to the right hand Or whenever you turn to the left.
Remember God’s faithfulness. Making decisions often causes one to become overwhelmed to the point of paralysis. Remember God’s unchanging trustworthiness throughout history.
Proverbs 2 8-9
- He guards the paths of justice, and preserves the way of His saints.
- Then you will understand righteousness and justice, Equity and every good path.
Give God your burden and believe He will provide what you need.
- Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto thine own understanding.
- In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He will direct thy paths.
Finally the most important decision one will ever make is the accepting of Jesus Christ as our personal Savior. After that decisions are in God’s hands as long as we listen and react appropriately.
