3 Ways To Always Make The Right Decision
Our life is a result of the choices we make everyday. Never underestimate the impact a single decision can have. One wrong move can ruin a relationship, a career or more. But choosing wisely will generate joy in our lives. Here are 3 ways to make sure you always choose correctly.
- Pay attention to the signs.
When faced with a difficult decision, we may say we don’t know what to do when in reality, we know. Sometimes we want what we shouldn’t have so badly that we ignore signs and red flags and the advice being whispered to our heart. You might experience God blocking something from occurring. Instead of becoming stubborn and pushing for it to happen, take a step back and reflect. This same principle holds true under all circumstances, including relationships.
- Allow past events to dictate present decisions.
Many times we can draw on our own experience to know what decision to make. If you can't take your own advice, you've learned your lessons in vain. Our past should clarify our choices. What did you learn from a similar situation in the past? Taking the same actions now will yield the same results
- Ask for divine guidance.
God gave us free will but we need to make decisions that align with His will for best results. The instructions He has given us are designed to bring us maximum freedom and happiness. People make tragic decisions because they muffle the voice of God. He will tell us by giving us a feeling of peace. If you feel peace about something, it is the right decision. If you don’t feel peace, it is the wrong decision. Do not do something if you do not feel complete peace about it.
If you truly don’t know what God’s will is for you, ask Him. Ask God for wisdom and direction, that is a prayer He will always answer.
James 1:5 NIV 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.
