Before I came to know Christ, decisions were made on a whim with no real thought behind them. I hastily chose whatever was most convenient and usually tried to work myself out of it later, especially if I thought I made a mistake.
“Enthusiasm without knowledge is no good; haste makes mistakes.”
Proverbs 19: 2
Now things look a bit different. Almost every time I’m confronted with a decision I will bring that choice before the Lord. I compare my choices with what the Word of God instructs, if there is any kind of conflict the answer is no. Only by the guiding of His Spirit am I able to make wise decisions.
A Work in Progress
Unfortunately, there is a downside to my taking time to decide…
There are times that I take too long.
That prolonged period where I’m biding my time turns to procrastination and indecisiveness. That turns into second guessing myself and what God is telling me to do.
