The Answer To Your Indecision

You’re so focused on this decision that it’s started to consume you. It’s constantly on your mind.  You spend much of your days and nights weighing the pros and cons of your options and still end up unsure.  Maybe your emotions are heavily involved and dictating the choice you’re leaning towards.  Or maybe you’d rather not make a decision at all because it’s just too hard.  Lord knows that I have been in both of these scenarios and when it comes to big decision making, the answer is this, change your focus.

You’re too caught up, too overwhelmed and too consumed by the choices in front of you to make a sound decision. So, rather than continue to focus on the situation and your options, focus on God.  He is the only one that truly knows the best choice for you. Stop trying to figure it out on your own when you have access to the spirit and Word of God that can and will guide you to making the right choice.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.  All of the contemplating that you’re doing is the sheer essence of leaning on your own understanding. Stop! Instead, bring the situation to God in prayer and focus on His Word.  The more you get His Word on the inside of you the more clearly you will hear that still small voice guiding you in the direction that you should go.

Decision making encourages our growth in Christ. But in order to take advantage of those opportunities for growth we have to first realize that the decisions we face are not there for us to make them alone. They are there for us to utilize the readily available help that we have access to in Jesus Christ.  I’m not saying that it’s easy.  But as difficult as some of our choices may be we’d rather suffer through the decision making than trust and submit to the will of God. But why? Fear. We’re afraid that what we want for ourselves may not be God’s will for us.  It’s a trick of the enemy. DO NOT be afraid. God wants to give you His best, let Him. Submit to His will.   If you don’t get what you want it’s because He has something better.

Bottom line is this, change your focus. Stop stressing, worrying, and losing sleep about this decision you have to make. Take it to God. Tell Him that you’re trusting in Him to guide you in the direction you should go. And tell Him that despite what you may want, staying in His will is what’s most important because you know that the best life you can have only comes in lining up with His will.  Then, get in His Word, keep your focus there and watch what happens.

Joshua 1:8 – Mediate on the Word night and day. Then you will make your way prosperous and you will have good success.

Making Tough Decisions

Today’s Scripture

Hebrews 4:15

“For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.”

Today’s Word
It’s important to make the right choices, especially in the middle of hurt, discouragement, frustration and confusion when the right choice is the tough choice to make. When things are stressful, we naturally like to take the path of least resistance. But those are the very moments when you need to make the tougher choice. Because to reap right results in life, you have to do right when you don’t feel like it. What’s amazing to me is that Jesus knows what we feel like. When He became a human being, He struggled with all of the frustrations we struggle with. He felt like giving up and taking the easy way, but He overcame and made the tough choices.
When we grow weary and falter in our determination, we can know with confidence that we serve a God who knows what we’re going through. And we don’t have to make tough decisions on our own. When you find yourself stressed-out and beat down, on the verge of giving up, remember that God is with you and He understands. Find the strength to make the tough choices in Him.

Today’s Prayer
God, I’m so glad and so thankful that You understand everything I go through and struggle with. When I am tempted to take the path of least resistance, I will find my strength in You to make the tough choices. In Jesus name. Amen.
