Decisions, Decisions, Decisions
Updated: Jul 24
We've all been there, wrestling with the choices before us, wondering which road to take and what decisions to make. It's easy to think we know what's best, but let's not forget that God's got a master plan for each of us, and His ways are on a whole other level. Seriously, they're higher than our ways (Isaiah 55:8)! Choosing to do things God's way instead of our way can lead to a more fulfilling, purposeful, and blessed life.
When we go down the path of doing things our way, based on our own understanding and desires, it often ends up being a bumpy ride. We can find ourselves smack in the middle of disappointment, regret, and even destruction. Take Abraham, for example. He tried to make God's promise come true in his own way, and let's just say it caused a whole lot of conflict. The world's been feeling the effects ever since. However, when we seek God's guidance and follow His principles, we can experience true joy, peace, and success.
The Bible is filled with examples of people who chose to follow God's ways and were blessed for it. And, those blessings blessed others for generations to come! Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt by following God's instructions. Joshua conquered Jericho by simply obeying God's commands. Jesus himself: He showed us what it looks like to submit to God's will, even to the point of death on the cross, and provided salvation for all mankind!
Now, don't get me wrong. Choosing to do things God's way won't always be a walk in the park, but it is absolutely worth it. When we seek God's guidance, when we dive into His word and rely on His strength, we can live a life that honors Him and brings glory to His name.
Remember Proverbs 3:5-6, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths." You won't regret it. Let's do this, God's way!
