Have you ever found yourself at a crossroads struggling to make a decision where neither choice can be considered right or wrong, but it’s a question of which path you would like to take?
The past couple of months I have been trying to practice listening to the Lord’s voice and learning to discern between His voice, my voice, and the world’s voice. It’s definitely easier said than done. When I found myself at a crossroads, I began to stress and worry that I would make the “wrong” decision and forever be away from the Lord’s will for my life. Honestly when looking back, I regret wasting my time and energy worrying. I forgot that God’s goodness and purpose will always prevail in anything. I am not saying to not think through your decisions with the mentality “Anything I do, God can use for good” which is definitely true, but he also encourages having wisdom and discernment so don’t just go out on a whim and make random decisions left and right. 😛
There are such a thing as right and wrong choices, but for those choices that are neither and just a cause for growth and change, this is what I’ve learned and am trying to remember:
1. God’s purpose and will for your life will come through.
“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” Proverbs 19:21
2. God is good, so trust Him.
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
3. God should be your goal. Make your decisions with that perspective.
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Matthew 6:33-34
I pray and hope that this encourages you throughout this next week. ❤
Have a wonderful weekend!
