A Scriptural Battle Plan for Making Wise Choices

What can you do about decision-making and the will of God? Follow this scriptural battle plan. These “weapons” work for every area of your life and lead you toward God’s best.

First, ask God for help. Pray, “Lord, Your Word says in James 1:5, ‘If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God… and it will be given to him.’ So here I am, Lord! I need wisdom, and I’m asking You for it! Please reveal Your wisdom in this matter.”

Next, pull James 4:17 out of your arsenal and pray, “And, Lord, Your Word says ‘Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.’ Lord, I don’t want to sin. I want to do the right thing, the good thing. So I’ve got to know what that is. Please show me the right thing so I can do it!”

Finally, reach for Proverbs 3:5 and 6 and pray, “And, Lord, Your Word says to ‘trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and he will make your paths straight.’ I don’t want to rely on my own heart, so I’m asking You right now, Lord, to guide my footsteps. What is the right thing to do here? What is the right decision? What is the path You want me to walk in? What is the right way?”
