Have you ever found yourself paralyzed as you face a decision you need to make?
It’s easy for fear to sneak in and whisper, “What if that’s not the right choice?”
“What if you aren’t hearing God correctly?”
“What if you mess everything up?”
It’s no wonder making big decisions comes with so much pressure.
The biggest fallacy with decision-making is that we are on our own to make the best choice.
We mistakenly believe that our purpose is totally up to us to decide.
We are forgetting something major when we make these assumptions:
God made us with a plan.
A plan for Him.
And He is the only one who has seen the plan all the way through.
Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
Friend, do you feel the nudges on your heart to move? To jump? To do something that scares you?
It might just be the Lord’s hang guiding you to where He needs you.
The truth is, we will never know what the future holds so when we take the leap, we will be jumping into the unknown.
But one thing is known- if we are being obedient and following God, He will guide our path.
So even though fear may be whispering that you shouldn’t do that, or can’t do it, or that something bad will happen..
Remember that God’s plan stands.
You can’t mess it up because you aren’t that powerful.
He already knows what you choose.. He took it all into account.
Rest in the fact that no decision needs to be made alone.
He is your companion through this life.
So listen to His nudges.
Even if it’s scary and doesn’t make sense.
Because He can see the whole path that is hidden from us.
And lean not on your own understanding, because we don’t need to understand it fully to take the leap.
We just need to have faith that He does.
