Thursday's Devotion: Making Good Decisions

Tragically many people are the victims of their own bad decisions. Faced with choices every day, they turn their backs on what is right or what is best and decide instead on what is wrong or what will bring them harm. Only afterward do they realize that bad decisions will always result in bad consequences.

 King Rehoboam stubbornly rejected the wise advice of his nation's elders and instead followed those only who told him what he wanted to hear. As a result, conflict broke out and the nation divided. The Bible warns, "Whatever a man sows, that he will also reap" (Gal 6:7).

Life is filled with decisions- some minor but life changing. How will you make them? The most important thing is this: Seek God's will in EVERY decision. Pray. Turn to the Scriptures. Seek the advice of Godly friends. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you. God loves you and His way is always best.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6
