God’s Antidote To Indecision

“He guides me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.” Psalm 23:3b (NIV)

Sometime we’re afraid of making the wrong decision and that creates stress.

God says there is an antidote to our indecision. Psalm 23:3 tells us, “He guides me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.” The way we handle the stress of decision-making is by letting God guide us.

You may be thinking, ‘But I’ve tried this!’ You asked God to guide you but then you became more confused than before. You still couldn’t figure it out. You wonder, ‘Why is knowing God’s will so difficult?’

Does God play games with us? Of course not! God wants to guide us. He wants us to know His will more than we want to know it. Our problem is we often look for the wrong thing when we’re trying to find God’s will. 

Some of us look for a feeling. Some of us want a formulaic approach to God’s will, some recipe to apply when we’re making decisions. Some of us take a magical approach and hope God will give us some fantastic sign or wonder to follow. 

All of these lead to frustration and can cause us to miss God’s will.

God does not want you confused and he does not want you stressed over making a decision. God wants you to know that he is there, guiding you every step of the way.

This is his promise, so you can believe this to be true: “He guides me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.” (Psalm 23:3 NIV)
