Ask For Spiritual Guidance When Making A Decision
(Passage: Matthew 14)
Decision making can come easy, it can also be sometimes challenging. It takes God’s guidance for anyone to make crucial decisions that are vital to life. Children of God must not hesitate to consult God at their moments of decision making.
A Christian who wants to make a good decision must be a prayerful person!
Present your thoughts to God through prayers, and be expecting his response.
Not just any consultation with God leads to making a positive decision, a person must also measure up to the standard of God to capture his attention.
God will show the right way and lead you in the right direction if you comply with his holiness standard. Holiness, in terms of living in love, honoring God, and keeping to his rules.
A person whose heart is not towards God will make a poor judgment because he lacks the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
King Herod, in the Bible, couldn’t make the right decision because his mind was not with God. Herod lost his mind during his birthday party; he allowed a little girl to manipulate him into killing John the Baptist (against his intention).
“But when Herod’s birthday was celebrated, the daughter of Herodias danced before them and pleased Herod. Therefore, he promised with an oath to give her whatever she might ask. So she, having been prompted by her mother, said, “Give me John the Baptist’s head here on a platter.”
And the king was sorry; nevertheless, because of the oaths and because of those who sat with him, he commanded it to be given to her. So he sent and had John beheaded in prison. And his head was brought on a platter and given to the girl, and she brought it to her mother.” (Matthew 14:6-11).
Be Prayerful To Make A Good Decision
You are not far from making the right decision if you allowed the Holy Spirit to rule you.
Christians must ensure they are ruled by the Holy Spirit at all times. Instead of allowing our emotions to cloud our judgment to making irrational decisions and making a costly mistake, we can indeed come out as the “best” under the guidance of the Spirit of God.
Indeed, humans are fallible; we are prone to mistakes, and we must rely on the leadership of the Holy Spirit to guide our thoughts and actions to appease God and prosper on earth!
Be careful to evaluate your thoughts and actions so that you can measure up to Bible standards.
Making the right decision is vital for growth and productivity. The devil seeks to hinder this progression and can cloud our judgment. It is important that we ask for God’s guidance when making decisions! #growth #productivity #guidance #decisionsClick to tweet
Dear God, please help me to operate under the leadership of your Holy Spirit so that I can always make decisions that glorify your name. Please do not let me yield to the leadership of flesh so that I won’t sin against you and lose your blessings! Please guide me in making a proper judgment that is not clouded by emotion.
I also pray that you please direct my heart not to follow the counsel of the evil ones! Let my thoughts and actions be coordinated by your Holy Spirit so that I can prosper in every day of my life. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I have made my requests. Amen!
