BEFORE YOU ACT
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6 NKJV
In life we make millions of decisions every day, there are those decisions that we are automatically making even noticing. We make decisions such as what we should wear, eat, drink, and decisions like how we can use the money we make and etc...
There are those important decisions in life that require enough time to think before making them. There are some situations in life that forces us to make decision first and see the results of decisions later. There are decisions such as what majors we are supposed to take in collage; which kind of investment or business is worth pursing and what kind of friends you want in life.
There are decisions that touch us directly like who we want to spend the rest of our lives with. All decisions require for us to pray, but important decisions like choosing someone to spend the rest of your life need prayers. I have learnt that most of the time we rush into this kind of decisions and end up in regret for the rest of our lives.
This morning, I want to encourage you to pray before you act. Don't make any important decisions in life before you pray about it. When you pray for God's wisdom, spend enough time listening to His voice before you make your move. Don't pray and immediately after that go on with whatever decision you feel is right before your own eyes.
God talks to us in many different ways, if you will let Him talk to you. He will show you what you should do in the way that it will be easier for you to understand. You are wired different from the rest of us, there are ways that you will understand His voice that will be different from the way I understand His voice. Ask Him to speak to you according to the way He wired you on the inside; and He will surely show you the way you should follow.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Father, remind me to pray to before I make any important decision in life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
