Job 12:13 - “To God belong wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are his.”
Making decisions can be especially difficult for someone who is battling emotional pain. Sometimes in life we get lost. The way ahead is shrouded by the clouds of fear of failure and loss of direction. The way used to be so clear. But now. Now we’re just not sure. One path leads up a steep hill and climbing is difficult. Another leads down into a deep valley, with the grade being so sloped, that you easily lose your footing and tumble down a ravine. What’s a person to do? Maybe you could just sit still until somehow an easier way will make its way known. The hours tick by as you wait, but the clouds aren’t moving out of your way. When finding yourself in this position, there is only one solution: the Word of God. In it you’ll find people who also faced tough decisions, but when they consulted God he always came through and showed them the way. He will show you also, because the Bible is our GPS, and it never fails to bring us to our right destination.
