"Making Decisions"

"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." Psalm 119:105
I don't know anybody who always knows what to do in every situation. Some situations we do know which direction to take or what the answer is, but there are more that we don't know what to do than we know what to do. 
Are you facing a situation that demands an answer? You have thought about it and are still not sure what to do? The answer that you need is found in God's Word. It is a lamp and a light that illuminates the darkness of the decision you have to make by showing you the direction to go, and telling you what to do. For example, it cautions you not to lean to your own understanding but to knowledge God in the situation instead. It admonishes you seek the wisdom that comes from God above-- not your own wisdom. It invites you to cast the burden of decision making upon the Lord and let Him lead you. It also lets you know that you always have an invitation to bring Him the heavy weight of what to do and let Him give you rest in the decision.
As I said earlier, no one always knows what to do when faced with a decision. But there is one who does-- the Lord. And as we look to His word for guidance, we will then know which direction to take, because His word will enlighten our path and understanding.
Have a great day. If you are faced with a decision, you will find the answer as to what you should do in God's word.
