Before you do anything else…

So how do you make wise decisions?

Well first of all you need to pray for guidance.  Before you do anything else, get GOD’s perspective on the issue. 

Proverbs 28.26 (TLB) says, “A man is a fool to trust himself.  But those who use GOD’s wisdom are safe.” 

How many of you ever made a stupid decision but when you made it, thought it was the best thing to do?  We all get impressions – but they are just that, impressions.  They are not from GOD, they are from what you ate last night – ideas that pop into your mind.  You need something greater than simply intuition, gut feeling, “I think”.  You need absolute truth on which to base your decisions.  You need GOD’s guidance.

Colossians 3.15 (TEV) says, “The peace that CHRIST gives is to guide you in the decisions you make.”    

So Ask: What does GOD want?  Not, what do I want?

Just a thought from the front porch…
