“We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.” Proverbs 16:9 NLT
If you are facing a difficult decision, a troubling circumstance, or a powerful temptation, it’s time to step back, stop focusing on the world, and instead, on the will of your Father in heaven. The world will often lead you astray, but God will not. His counsel leads you to Himself, which is the path He has always intended for you to take. Everyday living is an exercise in decision making. Every day you must make choices; choices about what you will do, what you will worship, and how you will think. When in doubt, make choices that you really believe will bring you to a closer relationship with God. And if you’re uncertain of your next step, pray about it. When you do, answers will come.
