Life is confusing. There is no roadmap, no mile markers, and no directional signage. Sometimes big decisions come into our paths and we must make a call: who to marry, what school to attend, should we quit a job, etc. These decisions simply show up on our doorstep and demand that we make a decision. Not making a decision isn’t avoiding the matter, as not making a decision is also a decision.
Decisions must be made, and the reason our knees quiver at deciding is because we understand big decisions change the course of our life. God is sovereign and his plan will stand, but we want to make the right choices. We want to flourish.
So how do we choose? For those of us that follow Jesus, how do we make our life decisions in such a way that we seek his counsel and do not rely on the highly limited amount of wisdom we possess at the time?
