Have you ever wondered, about the decisions that you make on a daily basis, or maybe even the decisions that you have made in the past. Maybe you where dating a girl, or a guy, and you had that night of intimacy, and now you have that baby that you weren’t wanting to have until you were married. What about when you came to the knowing knowledge of Jesus Christ, have you wondered, what would’ve happened if you didn’t make that decision. Where would you be today, what would you be doing, would you be alive, would you be walking down the wrong path that God has for you, for your life. We know that God forgives us for our past mistakes, and that regardless of our choices, as long as we ask for forgiveness, God loves us.
Regardless of the decisions we’ve made in our past we have to look to the decisions that we are making today, and who are we relying on, when we make those decisions. God tells us in Proverbs 3:5-6 to Trust in the Lord, with all of our heart, and lean not on our own understanding in all our ways acknowledge Him, and He will make our paths straight. Sometimes we feel that our paths are going in different directions just like when we are driving down the highways and we have to go onto different exits. God tells us that if we trust in Him, He will make our paths straight.
I was thinking today, where would I be today, if after having to move 7 years ago, and almost winding up in Maine. When I say where would I be, I don’t mean with my relationship with God. I am not country boy, I can’t drive 15 miles to the nearest store, I am a city guy. Though my real question is, would I be in the ministry, would I be doing the evangelism and giving my testimony that I am doing now. When we are making a decision regardless of that decision God tells us that we are to ask him for wisdom, (James 1:5). Their will be times when we make decisions that we will regret later, though as I said earlier, God will forgive us, with whatever those decisions are. We have a free will so I believe that their are times that God will allow us to make our own decisions. Some of those decisions may not be what we should’ve made.
That is why we need to know what God says about making decisions, and using his wisdom to make those decisions.
- Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety Proverbs 11:14
- 1 Corinthians 10:13 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
- John 5:30 “I can do nothing on my own. As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is just, because I seek not my own will but the will of him who sent me.
Let us go each day, seeking the guidance, direction and will of our father in Heaven, and asking him to make the decisions of our lives, with his will, and wisdom in our lives. Let us also remember that when we fail, and we will to know that God will forgive us and always Loves us. For God so Loved the World that He gave His one and Only Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
