Isaiah 55:8-9 (NKJV) For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways.
Did you know that God speaks to his children in many varied ways? God has said that his ways are not our ways. If left to our reasoning, we will fail to fully walk in the full counsel of God, which leads to poor decisions.
Thus, our goal is to avoid being deceived and to develop a listening ear that hears the voice of God with confidence. Our goal is to have such intimacy with God that we can walk in the full blessing of our decisions and to be assured they are not based on our own reasoning alone. This does not mean that we do not use the intellectual and logical skills that the Lord has equipped us with.
The apostle Paul said, “For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose (Philippians 2:13). God has equipped us with everything we need to make good decisions. Hearing God’s voice is the first step toward making right choices in life.
Point to ponder – In case you have a decision to make? Submit that decision to the Lord, ask God for clarity. Request from the Lord to make the desires of your heart the same desires that He has for you in this matter. Then you can be assured of making the right decisions.
