Today’s 333 Devotional: “Dealing With Indecision”
Life is all about the choices we make. We make our decisions and then our decisions make us, because every decision comes with consequences. That’s why decisions are so stressful. We’re afraid of making the wrong decision, or we haven’t made a decision because we’re unsure of the outcome.
The Apostle James says, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God…But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” (James 1:5-8)
The Greek word for “unstable” literally means to stagger around like a drunkard. When we can’t make up our minds then we end up staggering through life.
God’s prescription for indecision understands that God not only feeds us, but that He also leads us. God not only provides for us, but He also guides us. And God not only protects us but directs us as well.
We don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow, and while we make our plans, things change. This means that we need to admit we need the Lord to guide us, so we don’t end up on the wrong path or at a dead end.
The Bible says, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.” (Proverbs 14:12)
James goes on to say that we need to ask in faith, which means that we totally believe in God’s ability to deliver. Therefore, we need to have our spiritual receptors open tuned into the Lord’s channel to receive what the He is saying.
This is mainly tuning into what the Holy Spirit is saying through God’s word, which takes an open and receptive heart.
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” (Revelation 2:7)
