Have you ever been heading somewhere but suddenly you don’t know which way to go anymore? You’ve forgotten if you had to turn right or left and suddenly the surroundings don’t look so familiar anymore. And of course you didn’t save the address into your GPS because after all, you thought you knew where you were going. And then you find yourself asking the question, “Which way is it?”
You’re not alone! It’s the beginning of a new year and change is all around us. Maybe you’ve been offered a promotion, or a job at another company. Maybe you’ve met someone special and you’re wondering if they could be the one. Maybe you’re trying to buy a house and need to know which house is right for you.
Many of us are facing decisions of different kinds. Sometimes its difficult to know which way to go. What if I make a decision and it ends up being the wrong one? Often the fear of making the wrong decision can paralyse us into not making a decision at all.
It doesn’t have to be that way! Do you know that you can know which way to go, which job to take, which house to buy, whether he/she is the one for you?
I love this verse in Psalm 37:24,
“Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the LORD holds them by the hand.”
How do you know if you’re going in the right direction?
- Follow the One who knows the future – The Bible is full of verses that teach us that God is there to lead us and guide us. If you were lost, you wouldn’t hesitate to follow someone who knew the way would you? God knows the way you should go for your life and if you follow Him, He will lead in the right direction.
- Let God’s peace be your guide – peace is the absence of anxiety and worry. Whenever I need to make a decision, I talk to God about in my prayer times and I ask Him to guide me. If I am anxious about one direction but feel quite calm about another, I know that is His peace that is guiding me.
Whatever decisions you may be facing right now or may face in the future, I pray that you will remember that God longs to lead you and guide you into the best for your life. He knows the beginning and the end and He can be trusted!
