“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding,
in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.”
We’ve all been through this situation. When we become anxious, pre-occupied and indecisive over decisions we need to make whether major or small. Whether it be accepting a offer, or buying something we don’t need, or making a long-term commitment to an advocacy. Situations like these are not uncommon. The most difficult kind of decision to make would be choosing between two good things. How then would we know which decision are we being led by God?
Our lives are composed of a series of decisions and not a day goes by when choices are not to be made. But what do we need to do during these situations?
King Solomon, the man who in his time lead Israel, commanded its army, owned more that he can account for, and was far wiser than anyone else who ever lived, tells us to trust the Lord with all our heart. He knows that our heart is where every desire and decision is made yet it can still deceive us. He tells us to trust the Lord and lean not on our own understanding but to be mindful of our God because everything that we have in this life is from God alone.
So, what decision are you going to make today? Are you acknowledging your Savior in that decision? Would you trust God even and especially if it doesn’t make sense? Our God is worthy.
