Making Wise Decisions

Thinking Businessman Staring at Empty Chairs

 We have to make decisions every day, starting when the alarm clock goes off. Some decisions are minor – what am I going to have for breakfast this morning? What am I going to wear? Am I going to take the freeway or another route into work ? Those are minor decisions that aren’t going to impact my life in a major way, unless of course, there is a wreck on one of those highways!

But we also face major decisions in life – What do I want to do with my life? Should I marry this guy? How many children should we have? Should I go back to school? Should I quit my job? Should I take this job? Should I say yes to this opportunity? Do we sell our house? Which house do we buy? These decisions can have a huge impact on our lives.

I am in the process of making a major decision concerning my 96-year old mom, and it isn’t easy. I don’t want to make the wrong decision.  Why doesn’t God just write it down on a piece of paper for me? That would certainly be easier, but it wouldn’t require walking by faith and trusting God a step at a time.

How do you know what the right decision is? How do you know God’s will for your life? In the next few posts, we are going to look at some resources to help you make wise decisions as you seek to follow God’s will for your life.

I invite you to join in on the discussion. What are some questions you have about discerning God’s will? We’ll talk about them. In the next post, we’ll look at two aspects of God’s will.
