If you wander from the right path, either to the right or to the left, you will hear a voice behind you saying, “You should go this way. Here is the right way.”Isaiah 30:21
“Once you decide to do right, life is easy, there are no distractions.” ― William Edgar Stafford
Decision-making. Something we all do daily and appears somewhat mundane. However, daily decision making is something that is SO important. Decisions about career, relationships, school. Decisions about “making and doing the right choice” vs. deciding to do “what pleases us”. When we break it down, these little decisions/choices that we make shape our path for the future.
Convictions, beliefs, standards in this day in this age get a bad rap, in my opinion. “Do what you feel”, “go with the path of least resistance”, etc encourage us to decide with what “pleasures” us. However, when we accept God’s guidance in decision-maing which usually results in delaying gratification; we can reap rewards that He provides for us.
Is it easy to have convictions/standards? NO. Is it a daily battle? YES. Will we make wrong choices? OF COURSE – we are human. However, when we notice we are heading down a wrong path; its never too late to call on God to help us get back on the right path. He’s waiting and wanting us to lean on Him because we are His children.
Father God – Thank you so much for “establishing our steps” for good, wanting good for us. Help us to listen and lean on you for daily decision making to ease or path in life. If we stray away, help us to run back to You for guidance and decisions. Thank you for loving us so much. Amen
