Decisions. Decisions. We all face tough decisions in life. Like which cellular service has the best coverage; regular or decaf; soup or salad; do I want fries with that? Don’t we wish every choice was really that easy? However, we can take comfort in knowing the Lord already knows our needs before we ask. He simply desires that we would involve Him in every aspect of our lives, the big and the small. James instructs us to seek counsel from the Lord before making decisions. Ask the Lord and He will gladly tell you. Unfortunately, it’s so easy to get caught up in the moment of inquiry by seeking man’s counsel before simply asking the Lord. We’ve all done it. But have you noticed that by avoiding the Lord as our true source and solution, we only bring on further confusion and uncertainty?
Paul instructs us in Philippians 4:6, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.” We need to pray with expectation that He will hear us when we call. If you are faced with challenges and mounting confusion over a situation in your life, remember to cast your cares on the Lord, for He cares for you. From the simplest to the most complex, may we find ourselves today in a place of asking the Lord for wisdom, guidance, and help. Make Him your number one source in life, for He indeed is the source of it!
Lord, I need your help,
