Our best decisions are made when we involve God
Updated: May 1
Have you browsed the self-help section at your local bookstore and been overwhelmed at the selection of topics? They all make the claim to help you in decision making, attaining goals and personal well-being, among other things. Choosing a book on decision making ironically requires making a decision. What they don't tell you is that all of these smaller decisions are cumulative and most probably will require the purchase of yet another book or download. This isn't the case with God. He doesn't earn a commission or royalty for each decision of ours he assists us with.
If we involve God in our day-to-day decision making, we won't be as overwhelmed when we're tasked with making crucial decisions later on. That happened to me a couple of years ago. I was confronted with the daunting task of providing care for my ailing mom and simultaneously handing estate issues with the then recent passing of my dad. I then needed God's assistance more than I'd ever needed it. He provided much needed guidance and wisdom that I simply couldn't find anywhere else.
James 1:5 "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him."
Without God as our source of council, our lives could potentially devolve into chaos. Our decision making ability would then suffer.
Proverbs 11:14 "Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety."
What sets our Heavenly Father apart from literally any other type of consultant is the amount of information He has access to.
Jeremiah 33:3 "Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known."
We're constantly being sold on products and services claiming to make our lives easier and our decision making better. God is the best source of self-help we have.
