How To Make Decisions

We make decisions every day. And when we make decisions we need a guide. There are two verses in the Bible that mean a lot to me…
Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.”
Think about those verses…
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart.. ” When we are making decisions, we normally want to get as much information as possible. We gather information and then we study it until we feel like we have enough information to make an informed decision. But what then? There is nothing wrong with gathering information but, our first step should be to talk to the Lord. “Trust the Lord with all your heart…” the scripture says.
“…do not depend on your own understanding…” This means don’t try to figure things out on your own.
“… Seek his will in all you do and he will show you which path to take..”
Ok, you may ask, “How do I seek His will?” Read God’s word. Study the scriptures. Lots of times when we are trying to make decisions, there are verses in scripture that provide us with direction. We just need to read them.
Determine to trust the Lord… ask the Lord… for His direction.  So, are you trying to make a decision? The best thing you can do is give it to the Lord. Don’t try to figure it out on your own but give it to the Lord and trust Him.
