As I prayerfully approached writing today's devotional, I felt I should say - go easy. Don’t make rash decisions out of argument. Don’t make quick changes because of disappointment or hurt. Go easy. Sleep on it, get advice first before you make a change which could alter the course of the rest of your life.
Philippians 1:6 says, ‘being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.’ (NIV)
So give God a chance. In the middle of your problem, cry out to Him for help, strength and guidance. A lot of people never see the breakthrough in something because they give up at the last hurdle. Pause, pray and then make the decision. Involving God in everything you do, will only bring about a better God focussed outcome for the situation you are facing.
Nothing will remain the same when you put God in the centre of it.
Lord, help me keep my focus on You. Amen.
If you are facing a problem, take some time out, pray, ask friends for wisdom and make the best God-focused long-term decision.
