God’s Antidote To Indecision

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

Sometimes 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.” We handle the stress of decision-making by letting God guide us.

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

Is God playing 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. The 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 to tell us God’s will. Some of us want a formula to tell us God’s will. Some of us look for a fantastic sign that will show us God’s will. 

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

God does not want you confused or stressed over making any decision. He is always with you and he wants you to look to him for guidance.
