Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths (Proverbs 3:5-6)
There is a popular saying that “Life is full of choices.” In other words, our decisions determine our destiny. You probably have gone on a journey in which you used a map. Your decision to follow the map determines if you will get to your destination. Likewise, every decision we make each day can move us closer or away from our destiny. People make decisions based on their understanding of the situation, but our understanding is limited regarding life issues. Hence, the scripture warns us not to lean on our understanding but instead trust the Lord.
Making the right decision may be challenging, just as trusting the Lord may be difficult for those who don’t know Him. Knowledge is power! We need to know what is right and believe in what we know to make the right decision.
In life, knowing the supremacy of God and his loving-kindness make a lot of difference in our decision-making. When we know Jesus, the truth, He will indeed set us free from all forms of anxiety and afflictions. The Almighty God is the all-knowing and all-powerful creator of the universe who can do all things and grant heart desires.
Therefore, the right decision is to put our trust in Him. Accept Him as the ruler of your life. Let Him lead you while you follow. Learn from Him, and He will surely give you abundant peace.
