What are some of the ways you seek guidance? How can a Christian know he is making a decision in accord with God’s will?
As a woman who God has created me to be, I have a huge heart to want to help other women find their self-worth in Christ. I’ve been in the darkness so many times in my own life that I don’t mind sharing anything God gives me the heart to share.
But, I never want to share just MY own story or MY own opinion. I always want it to be according to what the scriptures say. I have had to learn over the years, and again as I always say, I’m not there yet, but I’ve had to learn how to make my decisions according to God’s Word not man’s advice.
If a friend is sharing how worried they are about a financial issue, I don’t find it wise to interject with my own hardships and start heading down the road to gloom and doom. However, I can remind them that I’ve had some financial issues throughout my whole life and God’s Word always reminds me that I am not to worry about anything, but instead in everything, by prayer and by petition with thanksgiving make my requests known to God. Philippians 4:6…
The words anything and everything are absolutes. They cover all cases. They allow for no exceptions. You don’t have to determine when you may and when you may not worry. You never have to worry. Thank you Jesus!
Thank you God that Your promising, never-changing Word tells us that we do not have to worry about anything. Forgive us when we do and help us to let all situations out of our control be placed in Your hands. Amen.
