Choices can be draining at times. There are so many options to be weighed out. Sometimes it can be difficult to know what is the right decision. I often like the right decision to be easy, but life isn’t quiet like that. When the right decision is the hard one, that can be most difficult.
We naturally want to make the right one, but it’s not as natural to want it to be hard. We have to seek the Father’s wisdom and strength to go through with it. Without Him guiding us, the process can be grueling to the point of not making one at all, which is really making one. We should do what’s right and what’s required of us whether we like it or not. We have an option, but who wants to choose the easy way out and take the chance of suffering for it?
Ultimately, we answer to God, not man, when making our decision.
So we should be sure that we seek Him and His wisdom. Make sure you do as He desires, not yourself or anyone else. Sometimes it’s a test to see if we’ll simple obey Him. He wants to know we’ll obey Him, no matter what we desire or what others think. We are to live our lives to the Father, not men. If the decision is hard because we fear what others may think, we have to face that fear. Men can only destroy you in their mind, the Father has the ability to destroy the soul. And so we desire to please Him and be a light to others.
If you’re facing a decision that’s hard, yet right, don’t fret. He knew You would be here and He is there to guide You. Look to Him. Turn your eyes to Him and do the right thing.
Father, thank You for being a good Father. Choices can be hard, but it may also be the right one. Help us to choose the right one even if it’s hard. Give us a desire to want to please You only. We do want to honor You, we just need the boldness to do so. May we seek Your guidance and face fear of man. Give us Your wisdom to choose wisely each day of our lives. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
