How do we make good decisions? How do we make sure that our decisions are in line with the will of God? Here are some suggestions that have helped me.
1. Is there a Biblical principle or prohibition that applies to this situation? If so follow that.
2. Pray about all major decisions. I have never heard the audible voice of God but I have often had a strong sense of the Spirit’s leading concerning which direction to take.
3. Seek godly counsel. So many times I thought something was a good idea until I listened to another perspective. I have consistently found that “we is almost always better than me” when it comes to making the best decision.
4. If there is a path that is difficult, selfless or at least threatens my “comfort zone;” that is often the godly course of action.
I hope you find these suggestions helpful as you seek to follow Christ.
