Decisions, Decisions

When facing any sort of decision, we should follow and trust the solid principles of Scripture.

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105

What do you do when you’re facing a decision? Do you approach it logically or simply go with what feels right in the moment? Many of us do the latter and “go with our gut.” This approach isn’t necessarily wrong, but you must be sure your gut is informed by the right principles and teachings—all of which can be found in the Scriptures. Every page of the Bible is filled with principles by which the Lord wants us to live.

James says, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him” (James 1:5). This summer, make time to prayerfully study God’s Word and listen to what the Holy Spirit is teaching you through it. Then, when the time comes to decide, you will know the best course of action—from the top of your mind all the way down to your gut.

Think about it

  • Are you making time to study Scripture daily? If not, begin with something manageable—perhaps five to 10 minutes a day—and go from there. Put Bible reading on the calendar, and integrate it into your routine.
