Decision Paralysis - July 12, 2017
By Rev. Gregory L. Edmond
"Then Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the whole remnant of God's people began to obey the message from the LORD their God. When they heard the words of the prophet Haggai, whom the LORD their God had sent, the people feared the LORD."
Sometimes in life, it can be difficult to make decisions. When it comes to larger choices, it becomes even more difficult. Things like, "Who should I marry" and "What job should I take," can overwhelm us and even sometimes paralyze us from action. In those moments where we are uncertain, we can still remain obedient in what we know we should be doing.
· Read God's Word
· Fellowship with other believers
· Love others
As we walk in obedience with these things, we will find that God will lead us into wise decisions on the big things. After all, if you are in God's Word you are reading about His desires for You. As you pray, you are bringing these difficult things to God and He is listening and answering. When you fellowship, you will find godly counsel waiting. As you love others, you are putting God and others first, and God promises to provide for those who do just that. So today if you find yourself at a crossroad, continue to walk in obedience in the small things and watch as God leads you through the bigger things.
Life Lesson: When at times you don't know what to do, remain obedient to what you know you should do.
I am thankful for Your involvement in my life. Because of Jesus, I can come to You with my concerns and decisions and You promise wisdom to those who ask. Lord, please guide me in the large and small choices I make today. Help me to walk in obedience in the small things so that I am in a place to walk rightly in the larger things. In Jesus' Name.
