We have all been there at some point in our lives. We are faced with a decision and for one reason or another; we don’t make a judgment. We start to think, rethink, and think some more and as a result, nothing happens.
God is there to help us make decisions. God wants us to be decisive, confident, and reliant upon Him. He is there for us when we are in need and there is not a question God does not know the answer to.
Ask God for guidance in your decision-making. Proverbs 3:5-6, NKJV: “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”
Be humble. Psalm 25:9, NKJV: “The humble He guides in justice, and the humble He teaches His way.”
When God guides your path, He will stay with you. Psalm 37:23, NKJV: “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the Lord upholds him with His hand.”
Plan for the task at hand. Luke 14:28-30, NKJV: “For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it— lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish’?"
Make sure you have the facts and hear both sides of the matter. Proverbs 18:17, NIV: "In a lawsuit the first to speak seems right, until someone comes forward and cross-examines."
Always pray. Luke 6:12-13, NIV: "One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God. When morning came, he called his disciples to him and chose twelve of them, whom he also designated apostles:"
