What’s your decision making process? We all have a process. It might be more intentional for some, but each of us take steps in making a decision. Some people look at every angle; others make pros and cons lists; others undertake a strategic planning process; and some stick with intuition and what their gut is telling them.
Jesus also had a process for making decisions. When it came to big decisions, He would stay up all night and pray (Luke 3:21; 5:16; 6:12; 9:18, 28; 11:1). He would get away from distractions and the noise of life and take the time needed to ask God for wisdom.
Try this: the next time you have an important decision to make, take a minute and find a quiet place and ask God for wisdom. Listen. Be aware of what the Spirit is communicating. Often you can discover God’s will by whether you have peace regarding one decision or another. Even tough decisions can be marked by the peace of God giving you confirmation what the will of God is.
Let me know how it goes. Praying with you.
