From Hope for Each Day by Billy Graham
MAKING GODLY DECISIONS
“In all your ways acknowledge [God], and he will make your paths straight.” –Proverbs 3:6 NIV
Are you facing a significant decision? Then look again at these words in Proverbs 3:6. Implicit in this verse is the truth that God knows what is best for us and that He wants to guide us so we will make right, God-honoring decisions.
When you face a decision about your future, seek God’s will above all else. Make your decision a matter of prayer, and ask Him to guide you. If we are truly open to His will, He will direct us.
Does this mean we should just wait around until God gives us some kind of miraculous sign or deep inner conviction? No, not necessarily. God wants us to be practical. Do research if you need to; understand yourself and your gifts; seek the advice of others. Make your decision in light of God’s Word: God never leads us to do anything that is contrary to the Bible.
Remember, too, that God often guides us only one step at a time—but that is all we need to know. So don’t be anxious. Trust God to guide you, and He will.
