00630 - Choices

In our journey through life, the importance of measured, prayerful decision-making cannot be overstressed. James 1:5 (NIV) offers guidance: "If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you." This reminds us that God is ever-ready to provide clarity and direction when we approach Him with sincere hearts.

By praying before making choices, we align our will with His. This practice helps us avoid the pitfalls of impulsivity and ensures that our actions reflect our faith.

Therefore, let us commit to consulting God in all our big and small decisions. As we do so, we'll find that our choices become more thoughtful, our paths clearer, and our lives more reflective of God's grace and wisdom. We will navigate life's complexities with confidence and peace, knowing that the ultimate source of wisdom guides us - God.


Never choose from your soul; involve God in your choice process.


Lord, convict my heart when I run ahead of You that my choices would align with Your will.

Action Point

Think about the choices you have ahead of you, and make sure to involve God.
