Decision Making (2)

Decision Making (2)

“Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.” Pr 16:3 NIV

Here are two important things to remember when you’re making an important decision:

(1) Believe that God is directing your steps. Because He is! “The Lord directs the

steps of the godly…Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them

by the hand” (Ps 37:23-24 NLT). God didn’t say you wouldn’t stumble. He just promised

to pick you up, dust you off, correct you when you need it, and keep working with you.

J. I. Packer says: “A moment of conscious triumph makes one feel that after this, nothing

really matters; a moment of seeming disaster makes one feel like this is the end of

everything. But neither feeling is realistic, because neither event is really what it’s felt to

be.” So don’t get bent out of shape; by God’s grace you’ll handle it and come out wiser.

(2) Realize that God can bring good out of bad situations. “And we know that God causes

everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according

to his purpose for them” (Ro 8:28 NLT). In every success story you’ll find struggles and setbacks. And you’ll also find tenacious faith that refuses to give up. After listing a series of

adversities that would make your worst day seem like “a trip to the beach,” Paul writes:

“None of these things move me” (Ac 20:24). Where does such an attitude come from? It

comes from knowing that God is working in you, He’s working with you, and He’s working

through you. And as Ethel Waters used to say, “My God don’t sponsor no flops!”

seem to get nearly anything done.

Howdy! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make
your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing
from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.
If you have any recommendations, please share.
