We make choices every day. Sometimes we are so preoccupied with our lives that we forget that we are even making these choices. Sometimes our choices are simple, such as a choice of how we will act or react during the day— we can be cranky or “down,” or we can be thankful for being alive (Psalm 118:24).
Sometimes our choices are more complicated— our decision can impact not only our lives but the lives of our loved ones. How do we approach these “forks in the road”? Do we really think about the possible consequences of a particular action before we act? Do we even ask and wait for God to give us guidance?
If you are faced with a difficult choice, then follow the advice found in Psalm 27:14, “Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.” In James 1:5 it says, “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.” God wants what is best for you so wait for Him to help you choose the right choice.
