Consider Him before you decide….
It’s crazy how so many Believers make big decisions, life-altering decisions, financially ginormous decisions and never consider God. People so easily get caught up in their ideas and beliefs and never once bend a knee for discernment and wisdom.
Ideas, thoughts and opinions are tossed around in an effort to win favor. Intellect and knowledge seem to drive the course of our determination. And although it sounds good, you will never know if the decision is right because you failed to pray.
It’s okay to seek wisdom. In fact, through the wisdom that only comes from God, we are able to make difficult decisions. Through prayer we are given divine ability to discern. When will we learn, we’re not always right. We are, after all, flawed humans who are led by emotion and feeling rather than wisdom. It’s so rash.
Slow down and pray. Don’t be the product of a disaster because you failed to bend a knee. Don’t lead people without being led by the Spirit. Foolish and recklessness happen when we don’t consider and take heed to His leading. And, unfortunately, most choices made often have long lasting ripple effects that spill over onto others. It’s dangerous.
When we choose not to consider God in the leading of our lives, we are leaving the outcome to chance. God never intended for us to gamble with our lives. He’s ready to lead if you are surrendered to follow. If you are humbled to seek Him first, then, it will be added unto you.
